About Me

I'm Aunt Pam, "Auntie" as Cohnway called me.  His Daddy, Mike, is my Brother.  We were all blessed to have Cohnway as part of the family for 26 years.  He enriched all our lives and he is missed everyday.  His spirit is strong and with us always.  He lived his dream and will never ever ever be forgotten.  We didn't want him to leave us, but God must have needed him more.  Cohnway, you will remain in my heart, mind, and soul forever.

Love, "Auntie Pam

Brother it's not your turn to go. I ask myself why? But still I don't know. You came to our fire house, Brought laughter and good cheer. You became a friend throughout the years. When I heard you had collapsed after that 4 mile run. I just knew you would bounce back, Like the rays from the sun. However you did win the race, To pick and choose, Your firehouse place. The scars on your body, Tell a story to all. What kind of man you have become, I know everyone saw. Like the burnt circles on your arm, It showed so well, How brave you were, When you got burned and said - oh hell? But you knew the girls would like the story, Of your new scars, Your pride and glory. I still don't understand why you're gone, But we will do our best to move on. One thing is for sure You will never be forgotten, We love and miss you, Firefighter Cohnway Johnson. By: Stacy Kubin

I am Mandy's mom and I got to know Cohnway through Rusty and Mandy. He visited our house a few times and the last time he was over he brought me a beer and we talked about when I traveled to Amsterdam. Cohnway was a fun-loving friend to my family and grandchildren and he is missed greatly.

Cohnway worked with my husband Rusty for 2 1/2 years at Oak Hill Fire Department. They became the best of friends and Cohnway lived with us for the past year. Cohnway was truly a blessing in our lives and we are thankful for the wonderful memories we have of him. We miss him so much but know he is still with us in spirit.

I live in Lexington and have worked with Candice for a little over a year.  I did not have the privilege of getting to know Cohnway but I know that if he was anything like the rest of his family he was a great person. 

 

I am an EMT and run with the volunteer ambulance service in my town. We work very closely with our volunteer firefighters and I have such a respect for what they all do.

Cohnway is and always will be a true brother of mine. I worked with Cohnway in Oak Hill starting as a fellow fire fighter and ending up as his Captain. I know that we will never be able to replace him and my heart goes out to Candy and Mike. Our loss of Cohnway will be felt for many years to come.

I worked with Cohnway at Oak Hill.  I learned a lot from him as I was new to the fire service.  I am truly blessed and thankful for having him in my life and being able to call him Brother.  Things will Never be the same at work.  I do know however that Cohnway is always there.  Your heroes live on forever.  I know that Cohnway is still on the truck, in the station and looking after us everyday.  375 is still riding, ready for anything.  Love ya Brother.
