Johnny Franklin Roark
Birth: Jan. 8, 1943
Death: Jun. 5, 1949

Johnny Roark was the son of Everett Price Roark and Coretha Coody Roark. Everett and Coretha had three sons.
They were at the Withalacoochee River in Lowndes County, Georgia for a day of fun. Johnny was on the back of his Father and he was swimming him across the river. It is believed that Everett had a heart attack. Before bystanders realized that something was amiss, it was too late. Little Johnny had gone underwater and drowned.
They were buried together at Mt.Zion Cemetery, Lowndes County Georgia.



Thank you so much to Melissa Craigmiles for sponsoring the memorial of Little Johnny.
