I cant remember a time in my life when Johnny wasn't a part of it, and working together for the past 15 years. Johnny wasn't just my friend and co-worker, he was my family, my brother! I have no idea how to life without him. I'm going to miss those annoying stories and long random phone calls....God speed my Brother .....until we meet again...........

Johnny was one of the first people that I met when I began working in Dispatch at Winstar. We were on the same shift. He has always been a great guy in my book, and I am so very sorry that I will not see him any more. My condolences to all of his family and his work family.

Our prayers go out to the family. We worked with Johnny both Jason and I at Winstar for alot of years. He was also our neighbor at one time. He will be missed. He was a very funny and nice man.
