StoryCorps: Jack and Kevin Johnson

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – WBFO presents another conversation that was recorded at the StoryCorps booth located outside the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library downtown.

Jack Johnson is a retired letter carrier from South Buffalo who still works as a security guard at a local nursing home. He and his wife raised three children, including Kevin who asked his father to join him at StoryCorps.

Kevin questioned Jack about the importance of the church -- and yes, the neighborhood tavern -- in defining life in their South Buffalo neighborhood.
