Mrs. Patricia Quick adored, cherished, and loved him and stayed by his side throughout his sickness until his passing. She stated that their vows said till death do us part. “I Love You Now and Always”
Johnnie was educated in the Lee County School System through Lee County Training School which was later renamed WB Wicker School here in Sanford, North Carolina. He worked with Mr. Bob Bows learning different odd jobs in which he gained a love of working on trucks alone with being employed through Artis Plumbing Company in Greensboro, North Carolina for over thirty years.
He was affectionate known as “Johnnie” by those that knew and loved him. He met no strangers and would be the one who would give you a long conversation especially if you were talking about fishing and trucks. He would rightfully tell you that he could out fish anyone that would stand on a creek bank with him even if he caught the lesser amount. He was a winner and you knew not to disagree with him. His love for working on trucks was enormous and he knew everything about working on one but didn’t know nothing. Best thing was to agree, smile and save the day. Johnnie loved to cook. His favored dish was fish which he could eat daily and he was known for his delicious chicken and dumplings. There was nothing that he cooked that didn’t have that way back in the day country taste including the lard and the thick fatback taste. His cooking was amazing and will definitely be missed.
