Most of my fondest memories are growing up across the street from Pop Johnny and his family. As a kid, I had a clubhouse that he always furnished (sometimes unknown to him) the paint for, so Stacey, Tonya, and I had a cool place of our own. I'll miss him greatly and I'm so grateful for always being treated as family.

I remember how Johnny loved to come to
The Salamonie and fish when we had the Gordon reunion. I always recall that he was a kind man and a gentle soul. Rest In Peace and may God bless your family.
