"He was always busy and a hard worker," Houx said.

In his spare time, Johns enjoyed deer hunting and fishing.

 Johns leaves behind Mildred, his spouse of more than 50 years, and their four children.

"Off and on, the family has been in the hair-cutting business," Houx said. Although Houx — and his sister, Jami — didn't take to his father's profession, his two sisters did.

"Both Linda (Clayton) and Nina (Roberts) have worked in the hair-cutting business," he said.

Mildred operated beauty shops for several years in Crestview and Holt.

Leon's Barber Shop will continue serving customers, family members said.
