Johnny passed away Wednesday afternoon after being caught up in a multi car accident through no fault of his own.

Johnny was more than just a friend, he was like a brother to me. He was the kind of guy that everybody liked when they met him. He was a hard worker, good husband, and a good father. I will miss our long conversations, usually about some automotive crap that most people wouldn't care about, just like we did 2 days ago. I'd give about anything to have another one of those conversations with him right now.

So long old friend, I'll certainly always remember you.


--EDIT/UPDATE--

Funeral arrangements are as follows...Visitation from 5pm to 8pm Sunday at Stringer Griffin Funeral Home in Woodville. Funeral is at 2pm at First Baptist Church Warren Texas.

My family's heartfelt thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. And we'll miss you here as well, Johnny.

There are news articles out there if you search Google news for Beaumont wreck. Woman driving erratic in a Cherokee, across the median, airborne head on into the windshield of Johnny's work truck.

Awful news indeed. I never got to talk to him in person, but his craftsmanship of his braces were top notch. RIP.
