I didn’t speak much to Johnny after high school. I think the last time I spoke with him was back in 2011. On Facebook. But I have memories from high school. Especially in Mr. Williams class at Etowah high trying to cheat off my paper then him trying to justify it to me. Lol. Or him picking fun at my name. Or just having some real talking moments. Or him being concerned about me because I wasn’t being ‘Joy’ due to a car wreck I’d had the day before. And he walked me to the front office and stayed with me til my mom came. He came up to Sub n Pizza a few times to hang out while his brother Michael was working. All in all from what I remember of him he was a fun, happy , caring and down to earth guy. Johnny, your gonna be missed. Much love to you and Rest In Peace from ‘Joy to the World ‘. My prayers for your family.
