Grandchildren, Taylor Slate, Cambra Graham, Meredith Graham, Austin Graham, nieces, Katherine Talley (Dean), Sheila Sasser (Keith), along with many other nieces and nephews.

Johnny was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, and the best Papa. He was a selfless man who loved God, his family, friends, and being a part of the Farmers Hunt Club as he was an avid hunter. He was an excellent farmer and always took pride in his work. In his spare time, you could find Johnny in his garden picking his tomatoes or cucumbers, hunting with his grandson, Austin, or watching sports on tv. His presence will be greatly missed, as he was one of the best men we have ever known.
