Our sincerest condolences to the family. Grieve not as I feel he would not want you to be sad! He epitomized having fun and a good laugh. In fact, if you were to look up the definition of party you would see his likeness right next to the definition. His annual home parties were legendary! He would just be laughing and talking. Remember the good times! Uncle Sonny was the coolest cat ever!

Our deepest condolences for the Johnson family on the loss of a man that knew the definition of having a great time and making sure those around him enjoyed themselves. If you were to look in the dictionary his name would be listed next to party! He loved to live and would not want to see anyone sad. Here is to the coolest uncle ever!

To the Johnson family,

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Mr Johnson has no more pain. He will forever hold a place in our hearts for the awesome July parties. Now he is partying with the Lord. May God bless you and keep you in perfect peace.
