Old Friends Remembered

This day, 22 years ago Andy Johns was killed in a head on collision. I guess I will always remember that day… We had lunch that afternoon then rode around & caught up a bit. After he left my house he was going by to see his daughter before heading back home. He never made it, he was killed on the way back to Parsons down in Chesterfield bottom.

Friends to the end. Rest In Peace Andy 🙏🏻

I can’t count how many days we worked together, or how many games of pool we played. Andy was one of a kind and a true friend! I served as a Pallbearer along side his brother Shane and several other members of his family. I’ll never forget that day either…

Old friends never really die, they live on in our memories ❤️

Old Friends & Rock N’ Roll Music 🎶

This day, 21 years ago Andy Johns was killed in a head on collision. I guess I will always remember that day… We had lunch that day and rode around and listened to some music & caught up. Rock n’ Roll 🎸 was Andy’s favorite. I heard the same song that he was always rocking out too this morning 😊

Andy was a proud father and a good friend! Rest In Peace old pal!

Here’s a little tribute. The two songs that I know that were Andy’s favorite 😊

 

 

Rest In Peace bro. ❤️

20 Years Gone, But Not Forgotten!

20 years ago today was the last time I saw Andy Johns alive. He had stopped by my place to visit that day. We went to lunch, then we rode around & did a little catching up. We hadn’t seen each other for a while, but it was like no time had past. After a few hours he headed out to run a couple more errands before heading home to his wife and little girl.

Andy was a proud father.

On the road home another driver swerved into Andy’s lane and hit him head on, killing him instantly… My phone rang around 3am., I woke & sat straight up in the bed & I somehow knew what the call was about… it was Andy’s brother Shane and he told me the tragic news.

This is where we laid Andy to rest. Gone but not forgotten! Rest In Peace.

A few days later I was in Arkansas dressed in a suit, serving as a Pallbearer for Andy. It was a sad, surreal day.

20 years have past, but Andy lives on in the hearts and minds of his family and friends! Rest In Peace Andy! Your gone from this world, but not forgotten!
