-five years old, and he has been homeless in Seattle Washington for over ten years. He is not completely homeless as he lives in his broken down car with his dog but it will not be long before that is no longer possible. He has no comfort or extravagance in life and he deserves better. He cannot see and he needs cataract surgery. He had an eye doctor tell him that it would cost him $1500 dollars up front. He needs help getting the finances together to get his surgery and to find some relief from worry and havoc. I have known Johnny K for over forty years. He is the dearest friend and a true war hero. He would do anything that he could for anyone but now he needs our help.
Johnny K was an incredible mover and shaker. He grew up in Provo Utah before he went to war in Vietnam and then moved to Ogden, Utah thereafter. He worked at Hill Air Force Base for over fifteen years. He holds a record for giving blood as he donated every chance that he could for most of his life. He played drums, bass, and sang in many touring and recording bands. I played drums and sang with his band Killawatt in the 1980s and he mentored me in musicianship, performance, and loving life. He is like a father to me and I try and help him as much as I can but the circumstances are dire. He has been pouring concrete in Seattle for the last twenty years and it has taken a toll on his body. He fell off of a ship about ten years ago and he was lucky to have survived. He has been waiting on the Veteran's Administration to help him with his eyes and his living situation for a long time and yet he needs money to get their help. He needs help getting his surgery and his quality of life improved. If you know Johnny 'Bubba' K then you know that he is too proud to ask for help but he deserves so much more.
