I first met Johnny Wayne way back in the late 80’s through Tony. I thought he was the funniest guy I had ever met. I last saw him at the Hobgood fireworks just two years ago. He hadn’t seemed to have aged at all, just a little grey in his hair, but again…, He made me laugh.
Let me express my deepest condolences to his family and friends.
RIP my friend.

I only met Johnny one time, when Phillip married Heather. It was a happy day for both families. Treasure the memories. May Johnny rest in peace.
