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

Really, I am just Dad ( and Pawpaw to Sterling ) but Cohnway and all of his friends always just called me "Big J".

It was a pleasure knowing Cohnway. I first knew of him through Big J from my previous employer. Cohnway had an opportunity to come to work for us and I was glad to be a small part of that process. There was always a joke running through his mind, including a very memorable exchange we had in the hospital in Houston. I'll not be forgetting that conversation anytime soon!

About Me

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.

About Me

I remember the first day Cohnway showed up at the fire station in Oak Hill. I remember thinking, "I hope I never make that guy mad!" Over time though I got to know Cohnway and had the privilege and fun of working with him on C-shift. He was never shy to tell you what he thought, and could crack a smile on anyone's face. I think Cohnway passes that ulitmate test that every firefighter hopes they will when the question is asked about them..."Is he a good guy to work with?" You see, Cohnway was a firefighter's firefighter. He was a great guy to work with---I knew he had our backs. We'll miss you buddy....but we'll never forget you.

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
