Johnnie served his country with distinction, spending three years on active duty in the US Army and 17 years in the Army reserves. Just before joining the Army, he married the love of his life, Dorothy on October 27th, 1955. The two of them met working at a Drive-in theater. He passed two days after their 68th anniversary. During his time in the reserves, Johnnie worked as a firefighter and general carpenter, dedicating his life to his family. After his military service he was a start-up engineer for various companies that sent him all over the world, including Indonesia, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea.

Johnnie will be remembered for his woodworking, and generous spirit. He always opened his home to anyone that needed respite in times of trouble, and he spent his last year making handmade toys. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
