Johnny was a charmer and a man of his word. He loved to listen to jazz and gospel music. He was a father figure in his own way, whether it was spending time with his nieces and nephews with open arms and encouragement. He also had a way with his words, whether if it was talking about sports, and politics, sharing wisdom of what we could understand, and sharing his laugh and smile that we all will miss.

Johnny was preceded in death by his brothers, James Nance and Ellis Nance, his niece Quatisha Nance, and nephew James Martin.

He leaves to cherish his memories to: (4) sisters; Gloria Bostic (Charles), Darlene Nance, Mary Nance Cribb of High Point, NC, and Deborah Nance (Clarence) of Greensboro, NC, and (1) brother; Robert Nance (Pie) of Greensboro, NC, Maternal grandmother Eloise Whitworth of High Point, NC, (3) nieces and (7) nephews, a very special cousin Ronnie Medley, aunts, uncles and a host of other relatives and friends.
