Gone but not forgotten

Johnny, you are our hero. Even after all these years, you are the Vietnam War to me. As Memorial Day approaches I just want to say thank you for my family’s freedom to live here today. Our love for you does not waver. Rest high on that mountain.

great man and friend

Johnny and I were in Pharmacy school together at Northeast Louisiana (then Northeast College) in Monroe, LA. He was a "kick"! Always laughing/joking, he quickly became a true, close friend. One summer, Johnny signed to work with a Red River civil engineering crew, he wanted me to join also. He was able to get the Red River job, but the recruiter wanted me to be a prison guard, Johnny just laughed, I said H--- No. When Johnny got back to school for the next semester, he had changed his major to Civil Engineering, telling Me "I can not stay inside, do not think I can be a Pharmacist". A few weeks later, my roommate said Johnny came by to tell me bye and he had joined the Marines and volunteered to go to Viet Nam! I will always regret not being there to visit with him.I never saw Johnny again, but he remains in my heart and prayers. "Eternal rest and peace, may God take care of you my dear friend! As he would say, " Awwww Man"

Johnny Tooke, a childhood friend

John was a special person, raised in a time and place where family, church and country were honored and most importantly, loved. Being a number of years younger than John, I idolized him as well as the town we lived in, Arcadia, La. He spent any spare time working while in college. Before he left for the Marines, he made sure that his church received the tithe owed them for the work he had performed. I have always wished I could have continued contact with him, after my family moved into a close neighboring state. His influence was always positive and he was as good a witness for Christ as any young man could be. His death was tragic in many ways but mostly I think of the waste of an exceptional son, student, husband and potential father. Though locked in time, you will never be forgotten and your good works during your life continue to influence nephews you never met but who will keep your memory alive. God Bless you John and may Christ's infinite grace keep you resting in peace.
