Johnnie Applegate, 55, died Monday, Jan. 2nd, 2017, in his home in Commerce.
He leaves behind one cousin, Pam Webb. Johnnie had no children.
Johnnie was born to Allie Applegate, Jan. 20th, 1961.
In his adult life, Johnnie suffered from a number of physical infirmities. Yet, despite that fact, Johnnie was an active participant in his community, his church and his neighborhood. Johnnie was well thought of by those who knew him.
His positive attitude toward his lot in life was supported mightily by his confidence in the sovereign purpose of God who works all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose.
Johnnie was a wonderful churchman. He served faithfully at Word of Life Church under the leadership of Rick Flynn. There, Johnnie received an honorary degree in theology.
In his last years, Johnnie was a faithful member of Commerce Community Church. His contribution to the spiritual well-being of his church family will be sorely missed.
