Johnny was a God fearing man who loved the Lord with all his heart. He would rather have Jesus than anything the world affords today. He was a faithful/moral man who was true to his convictions. He was hard working, determined, never gave up, and was truly one of a kind. He always spoke his mind and did what was right. He loved cutting grass, keeping a garden, hunting, fishing, and most of all he loved to sing. Everyone knew his song- “How Great Thou Art”. He enjoyed his time with family, grandchildren, and friends. He went to meet Jesus and now this world will never be the same. (One of Johnny’s favorite verses): With God all things are possible! Matt 19:26
