Uncle Johnny, we will miss your visits to Mississippi, filled with trips down memories lane and laughter. Your infamous question “you know me? I’m your Uncle Johnny”, will stay near and dear to us. For we know and will never forget that you ARE our Uncle Johnny. May your legacy live on.

Love your nephew,
Lance

My favorite memory is always going over his house. Eating breakfast that he made for us, talking to him on the phone about sports, and him supporting us no matter what. I love you Boi 💞!

Almost 20 years ago we cross paths and who would know that you would become like a "FATHER" to me. Since day one, you treated me like I was your daughter! The love that you showed me was real. You were the only man that was not blood that never let me down. Before Jada was born, she had already claimed your heart. She affectionately called you "BOI" and you dared anyone to try and check her as they thought she was being disrespectful. Then came CJ and it just got better. They truly one you over. You were one of their biggest fans and supported them from the 1st day they ever took the field until your last days. I thank GOD for the many memories that we were so blessed with. BOI you will truly be missed. The pop-up visits, daily phone calls and words of encouragement that you gave us. Take your rest BOI. Until we meet again...WE LOVE YOU! ❤

When I heard that Johnnie has ascended into Heaven, and touched the face of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my heart was broken, but as a Christian my Soul was happy.... For a fallen Soldier had made it home...I will miss the Long phone calls with my dear cousin.... I am thankful for those laugh out loud conversations. The family history and memories of our dad, Russell.... Thank You Johnnie........Ann, Carolyn, Kenneth, Johhnnice and our Mom Lore..
