Johnny was born ten days late, on August 18, 2004, in Long Branch, NJ, in the middle of a sun shower. He had the brightest blue eyes, the most beautiful blonde curls, and the biggest, most infectious smile you've ever seen. Johnny was a rock star from the moment he could talk. He was adored by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him, to know him was to love him. From the minute he arrived here he was pure sunshine. Johnny will be remembered, loved, and missed by many.
