Johntee Ettress had a smile that brought joy and happiness to every room he walked into.

Even at the young age of 29, he had lots of wisdom to share with everyone around him and was always willing to give a helping hand.

He was excited that he'd just begun a new job. He was looking forward to attending his daughter's graduation and planning her 6th birthday party. With his unborn on the way and having every intention to welcome her into the world, he happily shared his plans with us for the baby shower.

Within a blink of an eye, all had changed.

Before having a chance to get life insurance, Johntee Ettress was murdered on Sunday, June 4, 2017.

This unforeseen tragedy has left us broken, dealing with heartache.

He left behind such big shoes to fill. His daughters will live their lives only imagining how great and awesome their Father was.

We, as his family, are doing as much as possible to fill these shoes. 

We are very appreciative for whatever amount is donated. We thank  you from the bottom of our hearts.
