Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

Just shows how disconnected we get throughout life. I was the drummer in the DeVilles and played along side of Sammy at the Bamboo Lounge, Pecan Grove Supper Club, and other venues. Sammy was a very talented musician and as life presents we lost touch going separate ways but I always look favorably on the days we spent together playing music. My prayers and condolences to the family even though this is very late in coming. God Bless.

How sad. I just heard "Chevy van " on the radio today and remembered that time. Didn't realize it was near four decades ago nor was I aware of Sammy Johns passing.
He was a contemporary and it is painful to know he is no longer with us. Be happy and celebrate your life where ever you are Sammy. We will miss you fof the smile you put in our life with your music and whenever we see a Chevy van.

I was so sorry to hear about this. Sorry for the family. They lost a member of the family, we lost a great entertainer/songwriter. Chevy Van has been called THE SONG of the 70s, and for good reason. We all have so many fond memories of where we were back then when we heard it. Thank you Sammy for years of great music, and thank you for helping define an era. You will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace.

Sad to hear of Sammy Johns passing. Cruise on, Sammy!

I remember him from when I was in the 5th grade when I first heard "Chevy Van". I remember cruising with my older brother in his 1970 Chevrolet "trick" van and we pulled up next to a vintage '57 Chevrolet Nomad that was occupied by what was two sisters one my brothers age and Beth who was a year older than me. They hopped in my brothers van and we went cruising. I got my first kiss, I fell in love and never saw her again. Thank you Sammy; I'll never forget you.

Now he is singing in Heaven with all the angels. He has only left this earth to join another part of his family. Gone but not forgotten because of the memories you shared with him and the music he shared with us. Sorry for your loss.

It was truly a sad day today when I read of Sammy Johns passing. I loved his music, especially the song "Chevy Van." It's hard to describe how someone with their music can impact your life, how hearing a favorite song can bring back a flood of memories of better times, being with good friends and enjoying life but Sammy's music did that for me. My sympathies to all his family and friends and please know, he will be missed.

Demuris, I am so sorry for your loss. I know exactly how you feel, when I lost my precious brother, Danny Conard, your counsin I was heart broken. Now they are both in Heaven together with all of our precious relatives gone before them. They are the Blessed ones. Love you,
love,
Your Cousin,
Janis Conard
