Johnny was my Dads best friend. He was the true definition a friend. Always caring and willing to help anyone in need. He showed such honesty, dignity and true friendship to my Dad and our family for more than 59 years that Ive known him. He has joined the many who loved him, and leaves behind the many who will miss him. And look forward to seeing him again. We love you and thank you so very much.
