Sorry for your loss. I worked in the Cooper office many years ago. But I remember Johnny as a very polite man and always nice and always something funny to say. He will be missed!

My sincerest condolences. I had the privilege of working and playing with JB. I have lasting memories and stories to share. A character to say the least. He loved his family. He worked hard and played hard. Thank you for the Grand Isle experience!
Truly the good ole days,
