Obituary

Julio R. "Jay" Sotomayor III, 27, of Manchester, died suddenly July 16, 2019, after a tragic motorcycle accident.
Born Manchester on April 3, 1992, he was the son of Lauraine M. Graham Johnson and Julio Sotomayor, Jr. He was educated in Manchester and attended Bedford High School. He was employed as a delivery driver for Prodough for 3 years.
Jay was a fun loving, reserved, gentle and caring man. He loved to play practical jokes on his friends and family and was a true prankster. He had a love for food, riding his bike, working on his truck and spending time with his family and friends. Jay was the guy who would give you the shirt off his back and had the most beautiful soul. He loved hard, and was loved the same way in return. The only true way to describe him is just "Jay".
Family includes his mother, Lauraine M. Graham Johnson and her husband Stephen of Manchester; father, Julio Sotomayor of Nashua; fiancé, Brielle Lapiana of Hudson; maternal grandmother, Lorraine H. Graham of Manchester; paternal grandparents, Evelyn Cruz, and Julio Sotomayor, Jr.; four siblings, Nikole D. Lambert and husband Michael of Hudson, Marie E. Beaudet of Manchester, Xavier R.
