Johnny Thompson...Riding Wheelies through Heaven
Whenever I heard a motorcycle coming down the street in our neighborhood I could tell by the sound of it who it was, Johnny Thompson. He loved his motorcycle and he would often take a spin through town and sometimes I'd see him pull it up into a wheelie and ride up the street. He loved his stunts but I never thought of him as being a daredevil. He was just really good at what he did. He would bring his son, also named Johnny, to the skating rink on Saturday night and teach him how to skate. Johnny could skate better than he could walk or ride a motorcycle. He passed this on to his son. He was such an easy going guy. I'm sad to say that Johnny didn't make the curve the other night coming home from Murdock in the dark. I'm sure that he is riding wheelies through heaven now looking down on his boy and keeping him safe. Services for Johnny are Wednesday afternoon at the Christian Church in Elmwood with a luncheon to follow at the Elmwood Community Center. I hope everyone takes a minute to say a prayer for his 14 year old son, his family, and his friends. Johnny will be remembered.
ELMWOOD COMMUNITY CENTER would like to hear from a person who would like to work one or two days each week at our Center. Please call the Center at 994-2145 on a week-day.
