John Charles Grace "Johnny", 69, was called home to be with his mother (Ouida Grace) and father (Charles "Mac" Grace) and beloved puppies: Toby, Truman, Poppy, Duffy & Claude Tucker on March 9, 2017 (69). Johnny is survived by his beloved wife, Claudia Grace, Sons - Will Grace & Steve Grace, Stepdaughter - Shelly Graham, Granddaughter - Anna Claire Grace & Stella (Scotty dog). Johnny was a Meridian citizen his whole life and he was proud of that heritage. Johnny followed in the footsteps of his father as President of Hobb's Hunting Club when he passed in 1984. The club has been a part of the family for 65 years. Johnny was as original as they come, always had a story and never gave you a chance in a card game. A good ole boy till the very end. Please join us to celebrate his life on Saturday, March 18th.
Visitation will be at 3:00pm followed by a service at 4:00pm at Webb's Funeral Home

Johnny and I were friends in college. He was such a cool character, and we became very good friends. I only found out he was in trouble a few weeks ago. Johnny definitely "did it his way" which made him such a unique person that was liked by all. I will miss him very much. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
I am sure he is entertaining everyone in Heaven with that great trick where he threw a quarter over his shoulder, kicked it with his shoe, and caught it in the other hand.
