O'Neil will be missed. He built two of my houses and I enjoyed working with him and his son. He was a fine Christian man that we all loved and respected. Prayers to the family.

Dear Johnny & family, I am so very sorry to hear of your fathers passing. One of life's most difficult situations is saying good-bye to our parents. I pray that God will give each of you the strength, peace and understanding to get through the days ahead. Just know your journey with your precious father is not over, for you will meet with him in Heaven and to be separated never again...what a glorious day that will be!
