History and Miscellaneous:
  Johnnie's nickname was "Whitey" because of his white hair.  He loved fishing, gardening, cutting wood in the back yard, raising vegetables.  He worked in factories to help support his mother (his father died in a mine accident).

He loved to go blackberry picking and often took Joe Kuzma's children with him in his jeep.

One funny story is that Johnnie would take some of his cousins out picking blackberries on farms in the country.  On the way there they got hungry and he would buy a loaf of bread and pound of big baloney.  They would stop at an unknown farm and remove a head of cabbage to make the rest of the cabbage/baloney sandwich (no ketchup or mustard of course).
