Johnny Darras Summers, Jr., eldest son to the late John D. Summers, Sr. & Dorothy Christine Summers, left this earth on December 13, 2018 to tame and train heaven’s horses.
He was the definition of Cowboy, from bulls to broncs to his rope, he loved the rodeo. He always said rodeoin’ didn’t cost him but gained him a dime. John was a chrome technician by trade, working for Nichol’s Hydraulics along side his dear friend Terry Nichols. John had many friends and anyone who showed face at his home were branded his family.
John is survived by his nephews Michael (Rebecca) Pennington, Tom Summers, Jr., Tim Summers, Jimmy James Summers, Kevin Summers, Craig Daniels, Walter Costello, Bill Peck, Joe Carrasco, Jess Rogers and Ricky Aparicio, grand-nephews Leighton Pennington and Tyler Hahn, grand-niece Aubree Pennington, friends William Schmidt, Trey Dixson, Amber Fontaine, Floyd Waters, Gene Taylor and Patty Arroyo.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John & Dorothy Summers, his brothers Jim & Tom Summers, Sr. and his beloved Palomino stud Maria Sun Ray.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 32 here in Safford.
