  1. Rest in peace Johnny You will be missed by many others too Just watch over Shirley and your whole family Love always Vicki James

  2. We love you Uncle John and you are greatly missed!! ! Thank you Aunt Shirley for your continued caring love and compassion for our Uncle./godfather/great Uncle to Hailey, Lily, and Emmy until he left to join our heavenly family. We will miss your big smile, stories, and laughter.

  3. Johnny was always a friendly and concerned neighbor. He had a special soft spot in his heart for animals. We had a neighbors dog “Lily” that was left homeless. Johnny adopted and loved Lily until a home was found for her.
    That is just one example of his concern and caring for animals and others.

  4. Condolences to Shirley and family on the sad passing of Johnny. May his gentle soul rest in peace.
