May they all be reunited in Heaven. Johnny was a veteran of the US Navy military and had retired as Machinist at US Steel with 40 years of employment. He loved to tinker with his tools, and was an amazing carpenter. Johnny was definitely a man of all trades, and could fix just about anything. He also enjoyed landscaping and loved to see all of his flowers bloom. He took great pride in the homes he built and kept them immaculate. But most of all Johnny was truly a family man who was an admirable provider, he would have done anything for his wife and kids. He will be deeply missed by so many and his memories will forever be sketched in our hearts.
