Johnny Allen Huskey, Jr., 50, of Asheville, passed away on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at Mission Memorial Hospital in Asheville. An Asheville native, he was the son of Johnny Huskey, Sr. and Betty B. Sherrill. He was preceded in death by his son, Brandon Bas Huskey.
He was a treasured man. An unwavering and loving husband and father! No man could love his wife and daughter the way he did, and he told them so every day! Jennifer, his wife of 24 years was the love of his life and he was hers. His unfailing love was never doubted. He always said when it's your time to go the Good Lord will take you no matter where you are, on a plane or walking down the street! His wife and daughter are so proud of him and are so thankful for him.
He was a hard-worker; a retired MMA fighter and teacher and was very humble about his achievements, never bragging or talking about them even though there were many numerous achievements as he was on several magazine covers as well as articles, seminars and classes! You just have to listen to his family, friends and students to know the amazing impact he had on so many people whose lives are forever changed by having known him!
He was an unbelievably precious man! He loved the Lord and his family, and always said as long as he had them, that was all he ever needed! He was incredibly spoiled by his wife who loved him more than life itself! He even said he knew he was spoiled rotten but he was an appreciative spoiled! Born in and raised Asheville, North Carolina, he loved the beautiful mountains and all they had to offer. He will be incredibly missed, as he was and is an irreplaceable treasure! His love and heart will be treasured forever!
Johnny is survived by his loving wife of 24 years, Jennifer Huskey; their daughter, Grace Eleanor Huskey; his father, Johnny A. Huskey, Sr.; his mother, Betty Biddix Sherrill; his brother Leslie and his sister Angie; as well as numerous friends and students.
