 Johnny Ray Cameron, 57, resident of the Walnut Community and beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away Friday January 19, 2018 at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo following a brief illness.
  Funeral Services honoring the life of Johnny will be at 2 PM Tuesday January 23 in The Heritage Chapel of Ripley Funeral Home with Bro. Johnny Crum officiating assisted by Scott Barnes. Burial will follow in the County Line Cemetery near Walnut.
  Born January 15, 1961 in Chicago, IL, he is the son of Barbara Barnes Cameron of Walnut and the late William Roy Cameron. Johnny received his education in the Walnut School System and in earlier years was employed as a carpenter & roofer in the Memphis area.
  In 1984, a car accident left Johnny paralyzed but those who knew him will forever treasure his strong determination for life. His physical limitations did not hinder the joy and love of life he shared so generously with those whose lives he touched.
  A Baptist, talented artist and family oriented person , Johnny will be remembered for his large collection of Indians, wolves, eagles and dream catchers. He enjoyed The Price is Right , Green Bay Packers Football, NASCAR and Netflix on television and listening to country and southern rock music on the radio. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
  Visitation will continue Tuesday until service time at 2 PM at The Ripley Funeral Home.
  In addition to his mother, Johnny is survived by three sisters, Lisa Jenkins (Sam) of Caledonia, Betty Orman of Walnut and Tammy Cameron, of Corinth, a special cousin, Robert Nichols (Judy) of Ripley, eight nieces, two nephews, eight great nieces and twelve great nephews.
  He was also preceded in death by a sister, Teresa Caldwell and his best friend, Dicky Gay.
