Johnny was very close cousin and lifetime friend. He was strong, hard-working family man with fun loving personality and Christian values who will be never be forgotten .

Johnny was a shining star on the Plaucheville High Boys Basketball team. He was a good sport and always smiling. Johnny was in our Boys Scout Troop, Troop 40, led by the indefatigable Stafford Rabalais. Johnny was a good scout, always happy to do his duty for God and Country, obeying the scout laws. Now, Johnny’s star shines bright over the Great States of Louisiana and Texas. Undoubtedly JM was greeted with great happiness by Our Lord and his family in Heaven. ✝️Amen✝️ ✝️God grant peace to his family✝️
