B.J. was a 2005 graduate from CambridgeIsanti High School. He was employed by Laidlaw Transportation. There was always a twinkle in B.J.’s eyes and he kept us laughing with his antics. He was a man of few words, but those spoken had impact. B.J. enjoyed football, wrestling, softball, fishing, dogs and his nieces and nephews. He was an avid NASCAR fan and had attended races in Arizona and Texas. B.J.’s passion was motors, working on them and being pit crew chief for Andy Englund’s race car team.
On June 15, 2007 B.J. joined Jesus, Granny Ida Johnson and cousin Christine Lahr for a celebration in his eternal home. B.J. passed away as the result of an automobile accident at the age of 20 years, 2 months and 20 days.
