"Johnny" was born July 4th, 1944 in New London, CT, the only child born to Lillian Mae (White) and J.T. Landry. He was raised on a dairy farm in Hammond, Louisiana.

Toward the end of his career he traveled for work to San Francisco & Las Vegas and made many new friends along the way. He retired in 2008. He had many interests. Beginning in the early 70's, he became part of a huge sprint car racing family at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, where he was actively involved for many, many years. He was a proud and patriotic American. He enjoyed his dogs, fishing, golfing, playing cards, reading, watching sports and western movies (John Wayne), family functions, visits to the White Mountains & Louisiana, and EVERYTHING involving his granddaughters.
