With Love & Honor

Johnnie W. Feaster entered into this world on May 3, 1924 in Fairfield County, South Carolina to Ernest and Rebecca(Charles) Feaster.  He was 1 of 5 children in the Feaster household.

He was educated in the South Carolina school system and he later attended technical school for automotives.  He joined the US Navy at an early age and was a veteran of World War II.

After a brief employment in Philadelphia, PA he went to work for the US Naval Ordnance Station in Maryland, where he worked in the transportation department for over 35 years, until he retired.
