Arree Graham "John Boy" was born to Nayola Brown on September 16, 1925 in Bastrop County, Texas. He lived and attended school in Cedar Creek, Texas. As a young boy he labored in the fields never complaining about hard work. Before the death of his mother, she asked Francis and Ranie Allen to take care of her baby if anything ever happened to her

After the tender age of 55 and after the death of his mother, John Boy moved to Austin, Texas to live with the Allen family.

In 1970 he attended school at Now Industry and worked for Austin Recycling.

He was called "John Boy" by all who loved and knew him, never knowing where or how the name John Boy came about. To get a quick response from him you had to call him John Boy Boy Boy. He loved his family and people in general. He shared his ice and cold sodas with the sanitation and postal workers as they passed his home. The first words in the morning to cross his lips were "good morning". He never said a harsh word to anyone nor did any harm to anyone by word or deed. He loved family and pushing baby buggies for four generations of the Allen Family.

He loved to watch T.V., listen to music, dance, ride around town and most importantly work on cans. Bar-be-que was his favorite food and even though he was a diabetic, he would always sneak a cake or two. He was always mannerable, considerate and kind to everyone.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Ms. Nayola Brown and his god parents Mr. and Mrs. Ranie (Francis) Allen.

He will be sadly missed by Ranie (Herminie), Oscar, Albert (Grace), Ernest (Barbara), Thomas (Pam), Abe, Gary (Yvette), Pearl (Betram), Francis, Billy and Barbara all of Austin, Michael (Brenda) of Cedar Creek and Ozell (Shelia) of Compton, California; and a host of other relatives and friends.
