Alaska resident Johnny J. Bookout age 61, passed away May 29, 2011 at Granny's Down Home Care in Wasilla, Alaska

A Celebration of Life service is planned for a later date.

Johnny was born October 11, 1949 in Electra, Texas son of Jacky Thomas and Mary Elizabeth(Butler) Bookout.

Johnny's family will remember him as someone who was ready and willing to do anything he could for anyone he met and had a very big heart and a very great spirit; he greeted everyone with a smile and had a compassionate way about him that made people feel good. He found the bright side of everything. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and camping; he also enjoyed sketching and painting.

He worked in the oil fields when he was a young man and was a phenomenal auto body man who always took pride and worked hard in everything he did. His grandchildren said that he was the best grandpa I ever had and couldn't ask for more.

Johnny is survived by his daughters Dana Medford Wasilla, Alaska; Teresa Yow Burkburnett, Texas, Judy Bomar Springfield, Oregon and son J.J. Bryant Electra, Texas. He is also survived by many grandkids and great grandkids.
