He was married to Stella Limehouse Williams.  Johnny was educated in the public schools of Colleton County. He was employed at Husqvarna Lawn Mowers of Orangeburg, South Carolina.

Papa was known to put a smile on your face, make your stomach hurt from laughter and be the life of the party, type of guy! He loved children, although, he never had any of his own. He especially, loved his grandnieces and nephews. He lived life to the fullest. He lived his life the way he thought it should be; not what others thought.
