PARROTTSVILLE-Over 100 family members and friends gathered Sunday, July 27, at Parrott-Larue-Myers Park in Parrottsville to celebrate the retirement of Dr. Ken Johnson.

Fellow physician, Dr. Sam Puckett emceed a short program to open the celebration and paid tribute to his friend.

In his remarks, Dr. Puckett noted the coincidences he and Johnson share, including their independent decisions to settle in Cocke County 28 years ago.

"We had just finished our residencies," said Puckett, "and did not know one another. By coincidence we both chose Newport and opened our practices in the same building. We had lots of knowledge, but not much skill.
