Jack D. "Jackie" Johnson, Jr., 58

Jack D. "Jackie" Johnson, Jr., 58, of Hendersonville, NC went to be with the Lord Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
He is the son of Betty Garrett Johnson and the late Jack D. Johnson, Sr. He is also survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Cindy Johnson; two sons, Adam Johnson and Austin Johnson both of Hendersonville; twin grandchildren, Atlee and Liam Johnson; his siblings, Kathy J. Griffin, Karla Raxter and her husband Greg, all of Hendersonville and Jeff Johnson and his wife Deana of Arden, several nieces and nephews and his faithful canine companion Louie.
He was a native of Henderson County and he and his family divided their time between Hendersonville and Homestead, Florida until 1997, when they relocated here permanently. He was an active member of Mud Creek Baptist Church and a member of the Joy Sunday School Class.
Jackie grew up in the produce business and successfully owned and operated Western Carolina Produce, which was founded by his grandfather Josiah Johnson, Sr. and staffed by many of his aunts, uncles and cousins for many years.
Jackie was an avid Harley Davidson rider and always said his favorite color was chrome. He was president and founding member of the Bald Hawgs Motorcycle Club. He had his private pilot's license and PADI open-water diving certification. He also enjoyed playing basketball, golfing and deep-sea fishing.
A celebration of life service will be held 2:00 PM Sunday, March 29, 2015 at Mud Creek Baptist Church with the Reverend Freddie Johnson officiating. The family will receive friends in the hospitality room following the service.
In honor of Jackie's love for motorcycles, please feel free to wear your motorcycle attire and ride your motorcycle, weather permitting. He loved nothing better than the sound of a group of motorcycles passing by. Casual attire is acceptable, as Jackie liked everybody to be comfortable.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Amyloidosis Foundation, Inc., 7151 N. Main Street, Suite 2, Clarkston, MI 48346.
Condolence cards may be sent to the family at www.jacksonfuneralservice.com or to PO Box 945, Hendersonville, NC 28793.
