Johnny was soon identified as having the desire, empathy, people skills, and artistic talents necessary to succeed in this very specialized field. Johnny’s career experience spans over 40 years, primarily in the Española Valley and in Santa Fe. In humble beginnings, he founded DeVargas Funeral Home in March of 1999 in a very small structure, formerly the Forestry Service Building on the Los Alamos Highway in Española. Not long after, Johnny was blessed with realizing his dream of today’s more modern, larger and state-of-the-art facility. We are conveniently located in the heart of the Espanola Valley, we have 3 beautiful chapels to accommodate multiple services at the same time, an entire fleet of stately new vehicles, ample parking, and beautiful serene surroundings. DeVargas Funeral Home is proud to offer the Española Valley's newest crematory facility designed for comfort when witnessing is requested.
