Celebration of life to be scheduled. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Johnny’s memory to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Johnny avidly supported this organization and would donate whenever possible.
Our deepest condolences on the passing of your father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Wishing you peace, comfort, courage, and lots of love at this time of sorrow.
Not a single day will go by where I won’t think about how much you always saw the brighter side of life. How you hugged your family even when it physically hurt you to do so. I was one of the lucky few to see you and spend time with you on your last days here on Earth. I will never forget the day you asked me if I minded if you called me your son. I know when I get to heaven you’ll have a front row Johnny Cash ticket waiting for me. Until then I will be watching after Tina and your grand babies. Love, Christopher
It was such a pleasure to know you even though it was for such a short time . You left us way too soon. We had a few great dinners together and shared a few laughs. The first time we met you told me you gave hugs…no handshakes for you. You raised two great children and your daughter Tina has made our son very happy. She is very special and being a nurse was able to take such loving care of you at the end even though it was breaking her heart every day. So glad we got to see you before you left us for your Heavenly Father. Rest In Peace Johnny…… your suffering is over.
