My prayers and condolences go out to the family

I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.

The best day to be alive is always tomorrow !!
Think out side the box when all else fails !!!
Wi.

A sad note! Johnny was always fun to talk with at the Expo and worked hard to try and supply quality products at a fair price.

May he rest in peace.

Johnny was the poster child for what you'd call a "character." We had some back and forths at the Expo (all ended well) and he was never shy about asking for something he wanted. A classic, old school salesman. He absolutely loved the business.

Tom is certainly right, Johnny was a "character". He truly loved the business and will be missed. Rest in Peace Johnny.
