I did not know Sammy personally how ever one of his famous songs Chevy Van played a roll in my life as well as so many others lives during that time. so often we hear a song we like, respect the creator, but fail to explore the other many songs written by the artist. I had no idea how much music he had written for other artist until now. Rest in Peace Sammy your legacy and musical talent will live forever in many of our hearts and lives. we thank you for so many years of giving through your music. you will be missed and never forgotten.

So sorry for your loss. I grew up listening to "Chevy Van". My Mother Colleen Erwin Featherstone was a friend of his sister Demurris growing up. Chevy Van will forever be in the heart of Americans.

You were such a big part of my younger years. My dad, mom, and uncle all played in a band in my grandparents basement when you all were young and my dad never stopped being so proud of your accomplishments and knowing you. We listened to "Chevy Van" on our record player repeatedly. I am sure I still have it stored with my other records. Rest in peace Sammy Johns and thanks for sharing your musical talents with us.

Sammy taught me my first song on a guitar 59 years ago,
I have been playing instruments ever since.The song was honky tonk. We were in the same rock band in 1960. I use to come to your house on broad st in gastonia every day we were the best of friends. My name is Don McCombs and I'll never forget you. I have been playing music 59 years thanks to Sammy Johns.Your dad was deputy shireff in Gastonia.
