Saddened to hear of Johnnie’s passing. Death takes so much but it cannot take our memories. My memories of Johnnie will now be frozen in time, at least until we meet again in God’s Eternity. May God bless you and your precious family. Remembering the legacy of a great man and I look forward to that “Blessed Hope.”

Johnnie and Susan were an integral part of my life and ministry when they were in Oregon. They worked with me at West Side Church of God under the “Master Pastor” program of the State of Oregon. Johnnie had a Heart as BIG as all outdoors and Loved the Lord, His wife, His family and the Church. I loved him as a Brother and he along with Susan and BL and Alma Kelley…Blessed my life and ministry in so many ways. We have been separated by time and distance but whenever we talked, we could pick up right where we left off as if NO time or Distance ever came between us. I am heart broken at his passing and THRILLED at his Graduation from this life to ETERNITY with King Jesus! Johnnie and Susan were NEWLY weds when they blessed us here in Oregon. What a life of love and commitment they have shared. I continue to lift Susan and the family daily in prayer. “We grieve BUT NOT as those who are without Hope”. May God bless Johnnie’s Memory to each one who knew and loved this Good and Decent man and were blessed by his Life. I am Thankful to have walked a few miles of life’s pathway with him.

You will be terribly missed but I know you are enjoying Heaven. Well done good and faithful servant!!!! Love you man!!
Susan Huffstutler says
Susie, I love you so much. I know Johnnie is rejoicing in Heaven with your mom and dad but you have an empty hole in your heart. May God, as only He can do, fill the emptiness until you can be together again. Johnnie was an awesome man of God, husband, father, and grandfather. He will be missed by all the people he touched. I wish I could be with you but I am not able to travel right now. Please know my heart is there praying for you, Josh, Austin and the rest of your family. Hugs & Prayers my sweet cousin, I love you.
