Johnny was extremely talented, personable, and funny. He loved people and loved life. He was a loving and generous person. He loved working with his hands and mind. There wasn't any project that he couldn't handle. He was lovingly referred to as a Jack of all trades, and he mastered them all. He was always available to fix anything that broke or help anyone who needed it. He was everyone's "go-to" man. He loved children, especially his nieces and nephews, and they loved him.

Honorary pallbearers will be Tibbis Johnson, Steve Booth, Mike Hall, Mike Harwell, Tim Frenzel, Wade Sockwell, and Scott Holt.
