    Johnny grew up in Wilmington, Delaware. I know that when he was drafted his parents had moved to Roanoke, VA but Johnny never lived there. He went to Lore Public School in Wilmington. This school has since been converted into a retirement home. He was an active member of the Boys Scouts of America and earned his Eagle Scout status. He loved life, especially outside life and taking risks. It was not a surprise that he chose The Rangers with all the risks and loyalty involved.

    Also your page will be in there forever so I will see you long before that.
    RIP BROTHER.
