He was preceded in death by his father Charlie Howard. and and his sister Brenda Howard.

Johnnie and Mary were married on August 5, 1972. Johnnie 's favorite card game was pinochle which he played on Friday nights with a couple who later aided him into the truth. Upon seeing his wife happily serve Jehovah for 18 years and wanting to experience her joy, Johnnie decided to study he Bible.  He dedicated  his life to Jeovah God on May 23, 1992 and faithfully and tirelessly until the day of his death.

Johnnie loved his family and it was evident in their love for him.  He also adored his spiritual family, the Prattville Congregation of Jeovah's Witness, and did everything he could to encourage and assists its's members.  He rarely (if ever) said no to anything that was asked of him.  There were many things that Johnnie enjoyed doing, but what brought him the most joy was being a fulltime minister along with his wife Mary for many years.  Together they spent countless hours teaching others what the Bible says about our Creator Jeovah God, His government ruled Christ Jesus, and the Paradise where there will be no more sickness, pain or death.
