So proud to have been in Johnny's class at Lanier, at the University of Alabama, and as my Sunday School Class teacher at Canterbury United Methodist Church. He was a wonderful person with a loving family and many friends.  Halcyann Jones Badham

Johnny and I lived close to each other growing up and were friends for a long time. It is sad to know he died at such a young age. I have a daughter that age now. 😔
