Johnny B. Malone, Jr.


Mr. Johnny B. Malone, Jr. 48, Jonesborough unexpectedly went home to be with Jesus on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at the Johnson City Medical Center surrounded by his family.
Born on December 28, 1970 in Washington County, Tennessee to John and Linda Greer Malone. Johnny was a 1989 graduate of Davy Crockett High School. He is preceded in death by his father.
He is leaving behind his loving mother, Linda (Ronnie), one sister Jenny Kellam (Jeff), two nieces Johanna and Journey Kellam, his best friend and confidant, Chris Havens, and his beloved cat, Tim E.
Johnny had a God-given, natural talent, and knowledge of anything mechanical. He previously worked in industrial maintenance, but his true passion was automotive. He loved working on cars and spent hours in his garage. He was a member of the NRA and former member of the Leesburg Ruritan.
Johnny B. Malone, Jr. will be remembered as always willing to help anyone who needed him, and that nothing was more important than his word.

My deepest condolences on the passing of Johnny. He will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. I was introduced to Linda once at Chris's but never got to meet his sister. He loved his friends and family dearly. I will truly miss him and will keep the family and rest of his friends in my prayers.
