John “Johnny” Harvey Ackerman, Sr. passed away peacefully at his home on February 23, 2019, surrounded by family and friends. Johnny was born on January 27, 1948, to William Ellerbe Ackerman, Sr. and Bernice Olena Wilson Ackerman.
Born and raised in Andrews, SC, Johnny graduated Williamsburg High School and farmed until his last days. He was a lifetime member of Earle United Methodist Church. He loved the outdoors and sitting on the banks of the Black River at Bark Landing, watching Nascar racing and Clemson football and socializing with family and friends.

He is also survived by his siblings: Gail Morris, Elaine (Darrell) Brown, and Wilson (Willa) Ackerman of Andrews, SC; and Ellerbe (Inga) Ackerman, of Kingstree, SC; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Johnny was predeceased by his brother-in-law, Walker Morris.
