Johnny always treated me well when we were younger and neighbors. Even went dear hunting with him in our trailer. Good guy. Always a good guy. Sorry to hear of his passing. Catch a big one in the best fishing hole ever, Heaven.

I am sorry to hear of Johnny's passing. He was one of the kindest caring people I have known and no one could light up a deer camp the way Johnny did. May he rest in peace.

Johnny was a special friend to me.. He was so full of energy, mischief, fun and such a positive guy. I am so sad he's gone but if he was suffering I wouldn't want that for him. May the Lord's special blessings of peace and love be with his family at this difficult time. This ole world has lost a wonderful man.

Hello Cindy, Bryson, Tara, I am so sorry for the loss of your special husband and father! I always enjoyed the small chats we had when I visited your home; he had such a friendly manner and countenance. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family! Very respectfully, Marilyn Perkins
