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.
