Mr. Johnny Roe Andrews, 81, of Montgomery, Alabama, passed away peacefully at his daughter's home in Eclectic, Alabama on Saturday, January 13th, 2018. He left this earth surrounded by loving family and friends. Born on August 9, 1936 in Ozark, Alabama to Roy and Katie-Belle Helms Andrews, Johnny grew up in Ozark and Eufaula, Alabama and graduated from Eufaula High School in 1954. He attended the Southern Academy of Clinical Technology and held a B.S. degree in Resources Management from Troy State University, Montgomery.

Johnny served in Communication Security with the U.S. Air Force from September 1956-1960 stationed at Sewart AFB Smyrna, TN and served abroad in Korea for 21 of those months. Throughout his post-military career as a medical technologist, he held exemplary positions and received
numerous state and national awards for exceptional accomplishments in his profession.

He married Dolorus Haithcock, of Smyrna, Tennessee, in 1960. They were married for 36 years. He is survived by his children, Angela Andrews Wilkins (Bert), of Houston, Texas, Allyson Andrews Andrews (John Ashley) of Eclectic, Alabama and John Russell Andrews (Jenifer) of Wetumpka, Alabama; and grandchildren, Allysa Andrews Robinson (B.J.), Kelcy Andrews, Joseph-Lee Andrews and Spencer Andrews. Johnny was preceded in death by his former wife Dolorus, and his parents Roy and Katie-Belle.

Johnny loved his family and friends, Auburn University sports, fishing, raw oysters and Elvis. Additionally, his love of all things softball (on and off the field), brought him one of his most treasured honors when he was inducted into the SPA Senior Softball Hall of Fame in 2006.

A Celebration of Life service will be held Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 3:00 pm at Landmark Church, in Montgomery, Alabama with Al Millergren officiating. The family will receive friends at the church from 2:00 pm until service time.

The family extends gratitude and appreciation to his personal caregivers Mary Macheak and Sharon Mitchell, special friend Janice Steimle, Ivy Creek Home Healthcare, and Baptist Hospice.
