Johnny died on the 5th of April, 1976.  He was in a freak car accident on Sunday, April 4th.   He was riding in an open aired Jeep and his hat blew off and when the Jeep was slowing down for him to retrieve it, he proceed to jump off before the Jeep came to a complete stop and his jacket was caught on something and he landed head first in the gravel shoulder.  He had major brain surgery and died at St. John's Mercy Hospital in west St. Louis. It was very devastating for my parents and the family.

I remember that well.  We were shocked to hear about his passing and how it happened.  It is hard to believe that was so many years ago.  Love you Bittie and wish you could be here with all of the rest of us on Oct. 3rd.
