As a teacher, I always went to Green's for art supplies. Johnny was always ready to give a discount for the educators he knew. When I paid out, he had to tell me a joke......he was so funny!
I will always remember Johnny on GJ trips. He stood on the bus with mic in hand and told jokes while we were traveling down the interstate. On occasion he gave a devotional before breakfast. It was always a word of encouragement and understanding. We will miss this church leader....rest in peace my dear friend!
