John Munera, 54, died on December 14 th 2020 in Escondido, California.
John, also known as Jean Marie, Juan or Juancito, was born on December 2 nd , 1966 in Buenos Aires,
Argentina. He moved to Connecticut with his family in early 1976, when he was 9 years old. He loved his
adopted country and has lived in states as diverse as Montana, Washington, and lastly California.
Music, specifically punk rock, was essential for John. He was the bassist for Seizure, an 80’s Connecticut
punk band, and became a discerning collector and sometimes distributor of punk vinyl records. He also
loved mountain biking, nature, and animals. He had recently acquired an RV and was fantasizing about a
road trip across the US.
John was a loving and devoted father to his three sons: Patrick, Christopher, and Sebastian. He was
happiest when he was spending time with them, sharing his music, and playing games. His dogs Cookie,
Spike, and Spirit, and his cats Blue and Conan brought him joy and peace.
John is survived by his parents Gerard and Paula Munera, his sisters Catherine Munera and Emmanuelle
Van Vleet, his brother Philippe Munera, his three children and their mother Amy Munera.
