    I had not seen Johnny in years but I reconnected with him on social media. He was always a super nice guy and I am saddened by his passing. It was obvious the love he had for his family. My prayers go out to them. R.I.P. Johnny.

    I will remember Johnny as a little boy scooting through my back yard, completely carefree, on his way to the old Bluegrass pool. During the summer, his gorgeous blonde hair was a great shade of green from the chlorine. Johnny loved that pool. My sincerest sympathies to the family.

    What an amazing friend and person! I have loved Johnny since I was a child, and as I told Libby he never ended a phone or text conversation without telling me how much he loved me. We were all blessed to have had him in our lives, and he will forever be in our hearts! Fly high my friend. See you on the other side . and btw.. I love you too !!

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Bill, Tim and the Sinks family. Mom, Dad, Donald and I were shocked to hear of this. While the years have past, the memory of youth lives on. Rest In Peace Johnny!

    I remember one day when I was about 14 years old, I had a few friends over … Well, Dad had a nice little buzz and decided to cook him a pizza. When my friends and I walked into the kitchen we saw dad muching on his pizza. He looked up at us with such a serious yet funny expression and said ” I’m about to call Tony and tell him how good his pizza is” we all started cracking up. He said ” seriously, I’m going to have to call him up myself”
    We just laughed and laughed. Might be one of those “ya had to be there” moments.
    He was funny. Anyone who knows him knows that. He could light up a room.
