John Anthony Romero, 39, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, passed away December 6, 2019 at his home. John was born in Milford but soon after relocated to the Bridgeport area where he has resided since. John is the son of Esteban Romero (Gloria Romero) and Nelly Ortiz; A vibrant young man with a heart of gold. He made friends wherever he went. He enjoyed investing his time in the political realm for the city of Bridgeport as a way of contributing his grain towards the betterment of the city. He had a vision, like many, that Bridgeport has great potential for all people to work and live. He wanted to some day be able to say, he was part of Bridgeport’s comeback. His grain was never in vain. He worked for many years as a water operator in New York and took pride in his work. He along with his spouse Jacqueline Abrams spent time within the Democratic Town Committee in the City and although he would never seek to be in some elected position personally, he would encourage and even at times nudge his wife to play an active roll within such organizations. He was a good man who wore his heart on his sleeve as the saying goes, but if he noticed a need, he would give you his sleeve and his heart because he was genuinely loving and unbelievably forgiving. Everybody deserved a chance according to him. These are just a few of the characteristics that speak to the type of man he was, the heart he had and his disposition to each day reach new heights.
In addition to his wife Jacqueline and his parents, he is also survived by his brother Michael B. Romero (Joycelyn), brother Steven Romero of Queens, N.Y., sister Lissette Romero, step-brother Steven Romero (Liseth) of Norwalk, CT, step-brother David Romero (Sasha) of Derby, CT, and one niece Maria Romero.
