Johnny was a caring, faithful person who will be missed and loved.  He will live on in our hearts until we join him in Heaven.  Johnny loved hunting, fishing, auctions, local music venues, and the Buffalo Fish Camp.  For many years Johnny was a welder and contractor and later retired from the South Carolina Department of Corrections.  Johnny was a member of Beulah Baptist Church and a supporter of C4 Ministries.  He was a Mason and Shriner.  Johnny was an active member of the Union County Shrine Club.

Surviving besides his fur baby Ace, are his sisters, Tommie Bartine of Phoenix, AZ and Kim Morris and husband Jimmy of Union; a brother-in-law, Larry Bridges and wife Laura of Union.  He also leaves behind several nephews and nieces.  Johnny was loved and had many special friends.
