This page is dedicated to the memory of a dear friend, the inner child, the Jackass, who made our lives funnier, nicer, and better. He fished, ate, drank, woke, slept, and lived like there was no tomorrow. And he lived more than any of us will in the time we each have on Earth.
blessed us with his joy of life.
He was always welcome in my home,
and he made sure that I always knew when he was here.
Big Sean's kids could say "Johnny" before they could say "Daddy".
The bouncers at the Cornerstone knew they had backup when he was there.
But more importantly, he created a life that each of us in our own way were a part of, and all of us shared in his happiness. All of us feel a pain beyond measure to think that he will never be with us (at least in person) again. We all miss him terribly, and no one can have a better eulogy than to say that he's left huge holes in our lives that can never be filled.
He died early the morning of December 9, 2004 in his sleep. He will live on, jabbing us contiually until we all meet him again.
"What do you
mean, I AM the inner child!"
THERE’S TOO MANY FAT-BOYS
ON 1-SIDE OF
"WHICH END’S UP?"
He who dies with the most toys WINS!

From Big Bob.....
Ten days after his
passing, Miller Brewing e-mailed this lasting image of Johnny and me,
goofing off with a Miller Lite girl. Guess we were watching the Terps
play in the BBT Classic downstairs on the Sunday before he passed away.
night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me, it could be for anything
I didnt ask for money or a mansion in Malibu
I simply wished for one more day with you
One more time
One more sunset maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you
