Our beloved brother, uncle and grandpa Johnny Lee Good Luck went home to be with the Lord on August 5, 2020.
He was born on April 30, 1959 to Louis “Tex” Good Luck Sr. and Alice Iron in Dallas, Texas. He was a member of the Ties the Bundle clan and a child of the Piegan clan. He was also a member of The Everlasting Covenant Congregation in Billings and the House of Prayer in Crow Agency. He accompanied his sister Aneda Rosalind Hill for the indigenous welcome for the Wailing Women International Ministries, Melbourne, Florida in July of 2018. Also, he helped host the Prophetic Wedding Ketuba during the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), Crow Agency, Montana in August 2019.
He loved to watch the local basketball teams, often cutting out the newspaper clippings of box scores. His favorite past time was watching the television, especially movies including John Wayne, Rocky Balboa, Selena, Gunsmoke, 8 Seconds, Urban Cowboy, Basketball or Nothing. He also enjoyed listening to Elvis and gospel music. He liked to travel with his parents and siblings to various revivals, camp meetings, tournaments, and rodeos throughout the U.S. In his later years, he enjoyed traveling with his sister Rosalind and niece Verly to Washington D.C. He would come home after one year and stay home, because, “there is no place like home.” Some other highlights of his travels include Graceland in Memphis, Niagara Falls in New York, and Disney World. He was an avid Denver Broncos fan, often wearing shirts with their logo on it.
He loved seeing his family more than anything. He would always greet visitors with his trademark smile and laugh. He loved to chat with his older brothers, often telling stories of his latest adventure. He also laughed and joked with his sisters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and cousins. He was always welcome at their houses and would often stay with his siblings in Wyola and Crow Agency. He will be missed at yearly excursions to the Big Horn mountains and at the Annual Crow Fair celebration where he would sit and visit with family at the Good Luck/Three Irons/Goes Ahead camps. He would anoint those staying at his house on Pryor Creek before they slept. Johnny Lee’s boundless love and affection he would show to all his nieces, nephews, grandchildren will be missed.
He is predeceased by his parents; grandparents Edward and Angela (Brass) Iron, Matthew Good Luck, Ruth (Mussette) Bright Wings and Maggie Brass; sisters Aneda Rosalind Hill, Andrea Faith Good Luck, Evangeline Blacksmith, Marlene Whiteman, Kaneeta and Lani Red Star; brothers Gary Good Luck, Larry and Everett Whiteman, Adrian, Myron and Elias Goes Ahead, Dean and Wallace Three Irons, niece Lona Lee Fritzler, grandson Zachariah LaForge.
