Johnny Dale Rainey Obituary

Johnny Dale Rainey - age 72, lifelong resident of Jamesport, MO passed away Thursday evening, February 22, 2024, at Wright Memorial Hospital in Trenton, Missouri. Johnny was born on July 16, 1951, the son of Leonard H. and Esther L (Kearns) Rainey in Jamesport, MO. He was a 1970 graduate of Tri County High School in Jamesport.  Johnny was a lifelong farmer. After graduating from high school he stayed on the family farm milking cows, raising hogs and crops.  Beginning in 1986 to the present, he was a salesman for Moorman Feed.  Johnny also worked at Walmart in Chillicothe for a few years doing nighttime custodial work. In the early 1990's Johnny also worked for Landmark Manufacturing in Gallatin. After the death of his father, he began driving the Amish around; it was something he enjoyed doing. Johnny loved wildlife, sitting back, and listening to conversations. He had a particular fondness for 1968 Dodge Chargers and music. He loved his grandchildren dearly and enjoyed spending time with them. Johnny will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.
