Deacon Johnny B. Bozman, Sr., affectionately known to some as “Johnny B, Red and Dusty” was born on July 15, 1938, in Gadsden County, Florida. He accepted Christ at an early age and joined St. Mary M.B. Church where he once served in the choir and the gospel group called the St. Mary Hummingbirds. He was appointed as a deacon under the leadership of the late Pastor William Maxwell, Sr., where he served faithfully until his health began to decline. He was joined in holy matrimony to the late Ms. Shirley Ann Robinson for 55 years and to this union four children were born. His life was dedicated to his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was educated in the Gadsden County School System and retired from Leeds Lumber Company. He was an avid Florida State University football and Concord Warriors (CC Warriors) baseball fan. He also enjoyed wrestling, carpentry and Walker Texas Ranger.
