I have many memories of Johnny Wayne, most of them from my childhood as he was always at our house. He was a good friend of my cousin Bill Neuhoff. His Grandmother Annabelle lived next door to us. He babysat us many times, he was a mischievous one, but we always enjoyed the entertainment I distinctly remember my Mom chasing him out of the house with the broom on more than one occasion but she absolutely loved him as we all did! Sending my condolences to the family & may sweet memories get you through this difficult time. RIP until we meet again my friend. 😘🙏🏼
