Anyone who knew Johnny was touched by his kindness, humor, and mild temperament. He always made a way out of no way, always willing to help others. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. He deeply loved his family and was relentlessly proud of his seven children. He would share the love he had for his children with anyone he came across. He was forever saying “I LOVE ALL MY KIDS!” - #DADSSUPER7 Johnny was musically inclined, played the drums, and was in a band now and then throughout his young adult life. He also enjoyed watching and sharing movies with family and friends.
