Johnny was born in New Albany, Indiana to Shonda and Josh Knuckles. He was a 2021 graduate of Rock Creek Community Academy, where he excelled in football, track, and baseball. He was a beacon of kindness and leadership, a man of great character whose friendly demeanor and warm smile were constants that brightened the room.
