Johnnie was born in Temple, Texas to Joe and Mary (Kovar) Holick on March 31, 1929.

He married Della Meier and after his discharge from the Navy, they moved to Waco where Johnnie began working with Jacobs-Cathey Air Conditioning, where he would work for the next four decades.

Johnnie was a longtime member of the Brethren Church of Seaton. He loved to hunt and fish and dance to Czech music.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Mary Holick; brother, Jodie Holick, and sister, Mary (Holick) Pemberton.

Johnnie and his family were our next door neighbors on Trice ave in the 50's and 60's. What a treasure his care and compassion were for the families in our little part of Waco. Many fond memories! Peace and love to Della, Jerry, and Darrell. Charlene Johnson

Johnnie and I became friends through our membership in EAA Chapter 59. On Thursdays, we were usually the earliest arrivals at our lunches and would sit together and talk airplanes before anyone else showed up. Some times, we'd be there for almost a half-hour waiting for the rest of the crew to make their entry into the hangar. In the last few months, our talks centered around his plans for the new RV-3 that was going to be his solo toy to tear up the skies over Waco and McGregor. My Thursday lunches won't be the same without him around and I'll miss his friendship very much.
