     Johnny was a funny, loving and hardworking person. He is loved by family, friends and coworkers at RWJBH. Johnny always wanted to go places and do a lot of activities, his favorite hobbies were fishing and gardening. His favorite holiday was Christmas because he loved giving gifts more than receiving them. When he would go out Johnny always like to look great with his signature look of a white T-shirt and nice pants with his favorite white on white sneakers. Johnny also loved working as a limo driver and wearing his suits, always looking very handsome! He loved driving limos because he would meet new people and go to places he never been to. Johnny always wanted to put a smile on everyone’s faces, he was just that person. His favorite prayer is Our Father and he used to pray all the time, he truly loved God! Johnny will be missed dearly.
