Johnnie Pennington of Mannsville, son of the late Vance Pennington and Helen Belton Pennington, was born April 7, 1938 in Casey County, Kentucky. He died at 9:15 A.M., Tuesday, August 6, 2019 in Campbellsville. Age: 81
He professed faith in Christ and was a member of Mannsville Christian Church.
Johnnie retired his comb and shears after over sixty years of telling stories and sharing laughs with all who sat in his chair. For more than fifty years, if you couldn’t find him in the barbershop, he could be found selling cars from his lot. Johnnie served on the school board for twenty-one years and was also a member of the Elkhorn Masonic Lodge #568 F&AM. His smile and wave will always be remembered in the Mannsville Community and his good natured personality will be missed.
He united in marriage to Dorothy Larimore in 1963.
Besides his wife, Dorothy Pennington of Campbellsville, he is survived by three sons and one daughter: Barry Pennington and wife, Rhonda, Terry Pennington, Brad Pennington and Bridgett Rodgers and husband, Ricky of Campbellsville; four grandchildren: Olivia Feltner and husband, Matt, Gabby Benningfield and husband, Clay, Braxton Pennington and Joey Benham; one step grandson, Clint Rodgers and wife, Elizabeth; six great-grandchildren: Lenox Feltner, Ledger Feltner, Penny Benningfield, Ellie Benningfield, Amaurie Benham and Ivory Benham; three step great-grandchildren: Cailie Rodgers, Edward Rodgers and Grant Rodgers; several nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.
He was also preceded in death by two sisters: Myra Roberts March 19, 2001 and Margaret Gabehart September 10, 2008 and a step-grandson, Christopher Robin “Buzz” Rodgers August 30, 2018.
