Johnny Venoid Broome Jr., 55, of Mooresville, N.C., passed away on Friday, June 18, 2021, at Novant Health Presbyterian Hospital after a very long, hard battle with cancer.

Johnny was a member of Southside Baptist Church and attended The Cove Church, both in Mooresville. He was a dirt track racer in the Limited Sportsman Class and drove #17. He loved teaching his son about racing. Johnny was kind, never met a stranger, and loved the Lord.
