Johnny was a retired pipefitter with Reynolds after 27 years of service. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather and also a devoted Christian and Elder, always serving at his church, Center Star Church. To know him was to love him. He had a smile that was contagious no matter what he was going through.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, when you face trials of many kinds because you know that testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:23
