I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Johnny for over ten years, but that was also over ten years ago so I have not seen him in awhile. But I do remember his smile and upbeat attitude. Prayers for his family.

I've had the pleasure of working with Johnny at Charlotte County the last 14 years. To say he will be deeply missed is the understatement of the year. Always full of mischief, and happy to share a good recipe, or lend an ear when needed-he was not just a co-worker but a friend. He was someone who you looked forward to seeing. If my phone rang & it was Johnny, you could hear the smile in my voice when I answered! Although I haven't gotten to see him much the last few months, when I did, we'd pick up where we left off. I have so many great memories of working with Johnny back in the day at Environmental Services! Like right after Hurricane Charley when we were trying to rebuild our homes, while working nonstop at the County. One day he was outside & a displaced Scrub Jay landed on his head- one thing I didn't know until that moment-was how slick Johnny's dance moves were, while trying to get away from that curious little bird! He is solely responsible for my gratuitous use of the word "Dammit". His chili was excellent, he was a fantastic cook, and his love for Susan made us all wish we too would someday find someone to adore us as much as he loved & adored Susan, and boy did she love him back! I remember the day she surprised him with his red truck, and how he beamed with joy, and how happy he was the day he finally bought his flats boat. My only regret is that I didn't give him a big hug the last time I saw him. He was a wonderful person, and as much as I'll miss him, I'm comforted by my memories of that twinkle in his eye, and the way he’d say “April May” whenever he’d see me. I learned a lot from Johnny in the time we worked together, and I’m grateful I got to be a small part of his life. Johnny’s service was beautiful & I know he was beaming with pride at how brave, eloquent, and composed Susan, J.P, and the rest of his family were that spoke on his behalf. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

To Johnny's family, his passing leaves a huge ache in my heart - I cannot imagine how much deeper yours must be. I am so glad Johnny and Susan found each other. Whenever Johnny came back from visiting his sisters, he would tell us of the fabulous home cooked meals that you made special for him. He told us it was fried squirrel with gravy. Johnny had that twinkle in his eyes, so we were never 100% sure it was squirrel, but there was no doubt about his love of your cooking and visiting you. Johnny spread his love of music to many of us. I played "low spark of high heeled boys" most of Friday thinking about him. Johnny was an honest to goodness stand up, kind man. I cannot ever remember him repeating gossip or having an unking thing to say about anyone. Johnny made us all better people. Peace be with you.

I am sad I could not arrange to be there today with the rest of my family as we say good bye to my Uncle Johnny. It hurts to not be there for my cousins, JP and Matthew, aunts, Susan, Gloria and Mary, and my mother, Suzie. I am with you all in today with heavy thoughts and prayers. I love you all and am so sad we have to say goodbye to such a loved man. Bye Uncle Johnny, I love you.

Johnny was a great man, always friendly and willing to help. I got to know him when I first started Animal Control, and he was always a pleasure. My husband also has know him for many years through purchasing. We will both miss hi.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mr. Hunter was such a big part of our family at Charlotte County. I've heard so many wonderful stories of him that I felt like I knew him. We are saddened by his passing but will always have our memories of him. The deepest of condolences to his family at this time.

Johnny has always been a friend to Carl and I. He was a special person who dearly loved to fish and hunt. I know that he is up in Heaven doing what he loved best, Fishing. I will truly miss him!

Johnny was a dear friend from Jr High and High School. He was so cute, so funny, so cool. We called him Tonto. Last time I saw him and visited with him was at our 40th class reunion. I am so glad he and his wife attended. Everyone was thrilled to see him and meet her. I’m so sad to learn that he has passed. There will never be another “Tonto”. Gone but never forgotten. Oh our memories!!! ❤️
