He went on to further his education at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee and acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.

Quincy became a restaurant manager at Pizza Hut in September of 1992 where he met his devoted, loving wife of 25 ½ hours. Quincy continued with the restaurant industry until 2007. On March 1, 2007, Quincy started a new chapter in his career at AT&T where he advanced as a manager for the last thirteen years.
Quincy loved helping, teaching, developing, and training people to always do things right the first time. He always liked to have fun and was always silly with a good sense of humor.

Obituary for Evelyn Faye Johnson

Evelyn Faye Johnson, 71, left this life for eternal salvation on July 30, 2020. She was met in heaven by the love of her life, husband, Lawrence Johnson, father SF Shepard and brothers Frank and Donald Ray Shepard. Faye leaves behind a loving daughter, Kimber Dills (Greg) and grandson, Kamen Wren who was her pride and joy. She is also survived by her mother Ruby Shepard, siblings Dimple Warren (Mike), Shirley Hester, Tippy Shepard (Linda), Bill Shepard (Christine), numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and dear friends.

Faye was a creative light and artist’s soul. She was an accomplished painter, interior decorator, floral designer, and seamstress; although her favorite hobby was dancing with her groom of 55 years. Faye loved her family most of all and was so many things to so many people. She was a constant fixture, cheering at Kamen’s baseball games and would play board games with Gunnar for hours on end. There are some who would bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains. The loss is immeasurable, but so is the love and light she left behind.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, August 4 at Austin and Bell Funeral Home in White House. Visitation was at Noon and service at 2pm.

floral squareMemorial contributions may be made to Oneida Baptist Institute 11 Mulberry St. Oneida, KY 40972. Faye had many special memories of her missionary work here.
