BIOGRAPHY
Johnny F. Jackson was born April 28, 1944, to the parentage of Mrs. Lillie Pearl Jackson and Mr. Fletcher Jackson of Houston County, GA. On October 15, 1998, the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ called Johnny home from labor to life eternal.

Johnny was educated in the Houston Country Public School System. He was a former Orderly of Houston County Hospital. After moving to Boston, he worked for the Boston Transit System, where he retired. He was a member of the Holy Tabernacle of God of Christ Apostolic.

Johnny F. Jackson was a humanitarian in every sense of the word. He never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand to whomever he would meet. He's been a son, a brother, a father and a friend to so many people. The Bible teachers us that if we wish to gain friends, we must show ourselves friendly. Johnny has been the epitome of what a friend truly is. Prior to moving to Boston, he was the first African American Orderly hired at Houston County Hospital. Johnny had a caring friendship that started at home and spread abroad, all the way to Boston. The lives of those he touched left an everlasting friendship in life as well as in death. He will always have a lasting effect on each of their lives.

TO MY FAMILY

For those I love and those who love me,
When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years

I gave you my love you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness
I thank you the love, you each have shown
But now it's time I traveled on alone

So grieve a while for me if you grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for awhile that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart
I won't be far away, for life goes on.

So if you need me, call and I will come
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near.
And if you listen with your heart you'll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say
"Welcome Home"
