Ocala, FL: Johnny Gordon Massey Jr, 79, passed away peacefully on August 24, 2023 at his home in Ocala, FL.
Johnny was a husband, father, grandfather, uncle to many and a lover of his dogs. Simply said, he loved his home and everyone in his life, especially his wife of 49 years. As he often said, “Linda, you were and are my first love.”
By trade, Johnny started in the Navy, worked in the oil fields, was a mechanic and a carpenter. He loved his work and diversity of skills which he used each one of them.
He will be remembered as a man who did things his way.
Johnny is remembered by his: wife Linda Massey, son Gregg Lane Massey (Crystal Denise Massey), daughter Sheila Massey Smith, son John Klump (Jennifer), father in law Ken Brawner, son in law Marshall Smith, grandsons Johnny Gordon Smith and Lane Charles Massey, and many nephews and nieces.
The family immediately gathered when Johnny went home to God. A private service will be held in December where he will be laid to rest next to his father, step-mother, and precious sister Jeanell in Georgia.
The family would like to say a special thanks to Gentiva Hospice of Ocala, with special thanks to his nurse Dawn. Dawn was a light that brought joy to Johnny with each visit.
Thank you to Baldwin Brothers for their help and support during this time.
