Johnny Lee McPherson, 73, peacefully passed away Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at Briarcliff Health Center of Greenville, Texas.  He was preceded in death by the love of his life of 33 years, Joy Cole.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

In loving memory of Johnny McPherson, a cherished tradesman and Jack of all trades.  Johnny was born on February 28, 1951, in the heart of Savoy, TX. He may have come into this world in the middle of the woods, but his presence touched the lives of many.
 
 Despite not having a birth certificate until his thirties, Johnny always had a knack for collecting treasures others overlooked. His career as an Official Junk Collector was not just a job; it was a passion that defined him. He saw beauty and utility in items others deemed worthless.


 One with nature till the end, Johnny found solace in watching birds and nurturing blooming flowers and plants around him. His connection to the earth was palpable, a testament to his true nature.
 
 As a collector, Johnny knew the importance of preserving history and finding beauty in the old and forgotten. His home and yard were filled with treasures waiting to be rediscovered, showcasing his dedication to his craft. In moments of reflection, he would tune into classic tunes of the 50s and 60s, allowing music to soothe his spirit.
 
 Johnny McPherson leaves behind a legacy of creativity and resourcefulness that will be remembered by all who knew him. Though he has departed from this world, his memory will continue to bloom like the flowers he so adored.
 
 He is survived by his loving family and friends who will forever hold him dear in their hearts. May we find comfort in knowing that Johnny's spirit now roams free among the birds he loved so dearly.
 
 Rest in peace, dear Johnny McPherson. You were truly one of a kind.
