Johnny Edward Johnson passed away on Friday, September 29th at 2:08 pm after a hard fought battle with numerous health conditions.

Johnny was born October 27th, 1949 in Oklahoma City. He attended Oklahoma City public schools and graduated from U.S. Grant High School. He went into the U.S. Air Force after graduation, following in his father's footsteps in service to his nation.

After his military service, Johnny toured the country playing billiards with some of the greats. He eventually settled back down in Oklahoma and owned and operated a number of nightclubs in and around Oklahoma City until his retirement.

Johnny also owned and operated a horse ranch with the help of his father, Bill, stepfather, Bob, mother, Helen, and wife, Linda.

Johnny is survived by his former wife and love of his life, Linda; son, Mark Edward Johnson, daughter Lanie Johnson and son-in-law, Joshua Holleman; grandchildren, Brooklyn Miller, Emily Holleman, and Joseph Holleman; as well as other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Mark Allan Johnson; father, Joseph Edward "Bill" Johnson; mother, Helen Haney; and stepfather, Bob Haney.

Johnny can be summed up by a simple quote from a classic country song: "Them that don't know him won't like him, and them that do - sometimes won't know how to take him. He ain't wrong; He's just different. But his pride won't let him do things to make you think he's right."

Johnny - gone but never forgotten.
