We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Monroe
Johnny L. Huey was born on February 2, 1942, to the parents, Effie T. and John L. Huey. Johnny grew up in Heflin, Louisiana and moved to Monroe, Louisiana, where he met and married Irma Jean Adams, his wife, for more than 30 years. The couple moved to San Bernardino, California and later returned to Monroe, Louisiana to make their home.
Johnny, affectionately known as “Papa,” “John L,” and “Ackbar,” was a strong hardworking man. He retired from Howard Brothers Warehouse. He was a person who would say it as it was. He loved his family, watching wrestling, listening to the radio, and sitting on his front porch. Johnny was a longtime member of the New Saint John Baptist Church, where in early years he sang in the choir.
Johnny was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Irma J. Adams Huey; daughter, Tangie M. Huey; brothers, Marshall L. Huey, JC Huey, Rushey Huey, and Jessie Moore; and sisters, Essie B. Harper, Ernestine Kinsley, Hattie Lofton, Earline Jones, and Thelma Mitchell.
He leaves to cherish his memories: sons, Rodney Huey, Jolganza Huey, Alvin Mason, and Mack Mason; daughter, Connie Adams; sisters, Effie Lane (David) and Mary Taylor; brothers, Jimmy Huey (Vada) and Ivory Huey (Sheila); grandchildren, Rodneyqua Huey, Aneice Dorsey, Latario Huey, Carlos Adams, Terrance Adams, DeComa Adams, Marvin England, Lakedra Gorman, Antoine Mason, Jeffery Robinson, Joshua Robinson, and Jessica Robinson; a host of great-grandchildren; along with a large host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
