Lisa Sarver says:

Uncle Johnny always had a smile on his face and a story about his kids to tell. Even when life had handed him some tough conditions to live with he always made you feel special by asking how you were? what were you doing? how things were going? He loved his family and was so proud of them and it only took a few moments in his presence to figure this out. I pray that your memories will give you comfort.
