Richard and I will always remember the Cowboys Eagles sparring and how much Johnny always made us laugh!
Sandy, nothing quite compares to the love of a spouse. We want you to know we are thinking of you and are here for you always!

RIP dear friend Johnny!

I'm in tears learning of Johnny's passing. Such an amazing man. We worked together on project 10-12yrs ago but he was a lifelong friend bc of who he was as a person. A true friend all the way through. Johnny lived to make others around him smile and never once complained for himself. I hurt for the family that he leaves behind that won't have the joy of his presence, bc being around him was always a joy to me. Rest easy my friend. I'll be praying for your family.

Words are hard to process.The thought of you gone is so sad
knowing your grandchildren will not hear your silly funny
laugh or get your huge bear hugs anymore.They will know how much you sacrificed for them to have a good life from the beautiful stories Jennifer,Johnny Jr,Josie,Juliana will share with
them. They already have your beautiful eyes and smile.I once asked you many years ago "What is the most important thing to
you in the whole world Johnny?" You did not hesitate and you
said "my kids".You had a life full of hard work and you were loved
by many.Thank you for the wonderful children who are now amazing adults from all your love.
"Todo para la familia." Rip Johnny

I was blessed to have met Jonny when we were doing a lining project at Miller Coors in Trenton, Oh. Jonny always put his people before him. His leadership was articulate and top notch. I will never forget sitting next to Jonny on our way to the airport, both feeling like we were going to miss our flight to get home to our families. He made it happen. Jonny was the kind of guy we looked up to..

Johnny--always the one to include others in your circle, to invite, to welcome, to laugh, to live with a full heart, to enjoy life's moments. Jim and I are so glad we got to spend just a little bit of time with you during this journey. Each time we float a river, we will every time think of you. Hugging you tight with our hearts, Sandy!

Johnny we only got to spend limited time together these last few years, I can say that knowing we would be spending time in each other’s company whether golfing or social get together’s like the Halloween parties you and Sandy had were times that I really looked forward to on my trips home from working across the country. Those memories I will cherish forever! With both of us still working our times spent enjoying our Village golfing and partying together were way too few and way to short. Rest In Peace my brother SEMPER FI!!

Although I did not know Johnny very well, II could tell the times I was around him what a special guy he was. He was always jovial and smiling and had a great personality. You could tell by his actions how much he loved Sandy. I am so sorry for Sandy and his family for losing him at such a young age. RIP Johnny. Sandy will have lots of friends to help her through this sad time. Sending condolences and hear felt sympathy for Sandy and the family.

I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Johnny--our family had Johnny in our prayers during the time of his illness and now for your family during this time of loss.

Although I only new Johnny for the few years I have been working at Michael Baker at an office many hundreds of miles from Arkansas, I always enjoyed the conversations we had and the help he was always willing to provide.

Please accept my condolences on your loss.
