The last two years in his fight with cancer did not get him down he finished in the top ten those two years as well.
He was not shy to dance floor either. In his spare time he was with friends galore scooting around the dance floor and have a good time. Special thanks to special family and friends for coming by the house with visits, food, gifts, and prayers.

Deepest sympathy to family. Johnny was my step cousin, but I always felt he was a cousin just like his sister, Barbara. We had some good times in Mabank, fishing in tanks and getting crayfish for his mother to fry the tails.
