Johnny Monroe Lorick
March 26, 1950-February 2, 2021
It is with a heavy heart and great saddness that I have to announce that Johnny Monroe Lorick, 70, Dallas NC, passed away on February 2, 2021 at his home with his husband, Douglas Hall beside him.
Johnny was born in Columbia, South Carolina on March 26, 1950, as the son of the late Evald and Anthenetta Lorick. Johnny grew up in Cayce where he graduated from Airport High in 1968. Johnny started his work career in 1965 at the age of 15 so he could help his mother with the household finances. Johnny had a long work career with Metso Minerals, where his only goal was to provide for his family. Johnny was devoted to his future husband, Douglas Hall. They met in 1979 and they began their long relationship in 1980. They were finally able to marry in June 2014. Johnny was a quiet man who preferred to spend time together with Douglas whether it was traveling, dining out, or just sitting in the backyard watching and listening to the birds.
Johnny is survived by his loving husband Douglas Hall; sister-in-law, Christine Hall; brother-in-law, Steve Hall (Sheila); sister-in-law, Debbie Wilkerson; numerous nephews and nieces and great nephews and great nieces. In addition to his parents, Johnny was predeceased by his brother-in-laws, Mike Hall and David Wilkerson and his sister-in-law, Lynne Kim. He also has a brother Frank Lorick (Susan).
