Johnny graduated from Forrest Hill High School and later pursued his education through Hinds Community College, Mississippi College, and Troy State.

He also served as President of the Apalachian Lure Coursing Club from 2003 to 2017.
The greatest honor Johnny passed down to his children is to love and honor our great country. He loved the Corps, his country, his family, and his pets.
