Johnnie Earl LeShaw

June 29, 1940 — October 26, 2015

Johnnie Earl LeShaw

Johnnie Earl LeShaw was born to Charlie Thomas and Ruby LeShaw on June 29, 1940 in Honey Grove Texas. He worked at Honey Grove Grain and Peanut for 42 years and retired in 2005. Johnnie is a true Honeygrovian because he spent his entire life there and proudly proclaimed that is was his home and he would not live anywhere else. He lived, loved, worked, played and raised his children there.

On Oct 26, 2015 he passed away at Medical Center of McKinney, in McKinney, Texas. He entered heaven’s gates and God saw fit to give him a new home over in glory; a home not made by hands.

Johnnie will truly be missed by his family and friends. We’ll cherish all our memories and a life time of experiences that the Lord has blessed us with. To some he was Daddy, to some Grand Pa, to some Brother, Uncle, and friend. And to those of us who really knew him…he was Rusty Butt.

He leaves behind a legacy. Seven sons: Johnny Glen Jones (Gina) of Bonham, Texas, Anthony LeShaw of Dallas, Texas, Tyrome Jones of Sherman, Texas, Roy Earl Jones of Sherman, Texas, Wayne Stevenson of Bonham, Texas, Cedrick Stevenson of Honey Grove, Texas and Allen Stevenson of Bonham, Texas.

One daughter: Debra Jones of Sherman, Texas. One step daughter: Gunellia Young (Larry) of Dallas Texas. One Brother: Charles LeShaw (Mary) of Odessa Texas. Four sisters: Mary LeShaw of Honey Grove, Texas, Nina LeShaw of Dallas, Texas, Juanita Dennis (Jim) of Honey Grove, Texas and Gladys White (Damon) of The Colony, Texas. Oldest Nephew: James Wright of Weatherford, Texas. Brother in Law: Charles Griffin. He was blessed with sixteen grand-children, ten great grand- children and two great, great grand-children. Special friends: Willie Finney, Ray Sampson and Jerry Bean along with a host of nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his father, Charlie Thomas; mother, Ruby LeShaw; brothers, Lloyd and Roy LeShaw; sisters, Deloise LeShaw, Bobby Faye Floyd and Ruthie Griffin; a grand-child, cousins, nephews and nieces. Through it all, we give GOD the glory.
