      Very sorry to hear that, does anyone know his Forum "Handle"?

      Knowing that, will help those of us who have never met Johnny to know who he was here.

            Johnny was a true man of faith and loved the Lord. I have enjoyed his Bible posts for several years on his Facebook page. He will be truly missed. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family and he is now reunited with his wife in Heaven. Rest in Peace Johnny .

                I have only known Johnny for a few years. In my role as the National Director for this area, I called upon Johnny to help put some life into Chapters in his area. What a great ambassador he was. On Facebook he posted bible passages almost daily and he produced calendars with photos of his motorcycle in front of various country churches. Johnny was a man of God, a loving husband, father, and grandfather. We know he is with God and cruising heaven in either a Studebaker or riding on a motorcycle checking out every lunch counter in the heavens!
