Johnny Raymond Pickering, our loving son, brother, grandson and nephew took his life and returned home to his loving Heavenly Father June 27, 2019.
Johnny was born May 3, 2006 to Paul & Gina Pickering. He was the 3rd child of 4. His surviving siblings are Celeste Pickering (19), Jayden Pickering (14) & Linda Pickering (2).
Johnny loved riding motorcycles, wrestling, skateboarding and playing loud music. He was a big jokester. Always making people laugh. Johnny loved helping with his little sister. One of Johnny’s favorite things to do at school was help out in the special needs class. He absolutely loved those kids and they loved him. Johnny’s best buddy was grandpa. You rarely saw one without the other. They were always up to something.
Johnny wanted to learn how to play the drums and guitar. He wanted to join the Air Force when he got older.
Johnny had struggles in life. Many he didn’t understand. Although our hearts are broken and he is deeply missed and loved, his death won’t be in vain.
Johnny was preceded in death by his father, Paul Pickering and grandmother, Linda Miller.
Please reach out if you’re struggling. You are loved! You are not alone!
