Johnny was so loved here in Texas! I remember when I met him n Kristi at a church event and he had a NASCAR Bible! He was so kind n did so many favors for people (mechanically)! My favorite quote was "people are stupid" n I have used that a lot lately! He always asked about my family n shared stories about his! I have missed him and so shocked to see he had passed on to heaven! Life Church was not the same without him! Love you Johnny now you are racing in the heavens! Prayers for all...

Johnny is a once in a lifetime friend to find. I'm glad to have spent some very awesome times with him. As great of a friend and leader he was, he was an even greater mentor who could teach you anything. An incredible guy gone way too soon. If there's anything to take away from this, it's Live like Johnny. The most outstanding, energetic, always center of attention and the life of the party. None of this still feels real. We miss you, buddy!

Johnny .... Greenwood .... man ... we are still in shock that you're no longer here with us. Though we didn't see each other often, we loved each other like family. That happens after knowing each other for about 20 years. Your light and energy will be missed sooooo much. Now it's my turn to say it "love you more"

- Shelton and Steyphaney Borel, Port Arthur , TX

Hearing of your passing made me sad, but it brought back lots of memories, from cutting class in high school to pulling your dirt track car out to eagle raceway, Johnny was always ready for a good time, you will be missed old friend.

I'll miss our stupid jokes we shared with each other, bugging you about my truck, and just knowing you were there. We've both been through some stuff in our younger days, but both grew out of that to be great men. You had so much more t accomplish, but I know you were taken for a reason. I ❤️ you cuz and will miss you.

Mr. Johnny Greenwood will forever be in my heart. In only 3 months that I worked at Southern Motors Honda, he captured my heart and the most noticeable thing about him was his positivity, sense of humor, his love for his family and his love for cooking. Would always encourage us everyday that it was gonna be a good day. My prayers are with ya'll. RIP Johnny, I'll miss you dearly and everytime I see food, I think of you and how you enjoyed watching people love your food.

My brother Shawn and I have known Johnny since we were all in 6th grade… he was actually my second boyfriend. I introduced Johnny to my brother which they became best friends and remained that way all these years… Johnny will truly be missed in our hearts but never in our minds as he will always be thought of.
