Johann married his loving wife, Homa "Lee" McWilliams, on August 24, 2005 in Reno, Nevada. They were married for 16 wonderful years before his passing. Of all of his successes, his proudest achievement was being a father to his daughters, Alex and Ashland Viscosi, and a loving husband.
Johann lived an extraordinary life filled with adventure, inventing, learning, love, a passion for animals, and storytelling. His zest for life was infectious and touched all those around him. He proudly served in the United States Army and Army Reserves for six years. After receiving an honorable discharge, he attended Cameron University and later earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma. He loved practicing law in all of its forms and dedicated 30 years to the pursuit of justice; from serving as an Assistant DA in Grady County to running his own law practice. He was a brilliant man who loved spirited conversations, learning the art of debate from his grandparents at the young age of 5. He was a devoted and loving father who created a world of adventure for his two daughters.
Johann was a renaissance man with talents extending well outside of the practice of law. He took great pride in being a screenwriter, an author, and an inventor. He was a lifelong learner and passionate about the pursuit of knowledge; he loved sharing what he knew with all those he met throughout his life's journey. Johann was athletic and enjoyed cycling, long walks with the dogs, playing tennis, and sailing. He loved movies, reading, and Volvo cars. He held a special place in his heart for animals of all sizes, but most especially for dogs and turtles. Most of all, Johann loved and cared for his daughters, wife, and his best friend Buster.
Johann is survived by his wife, Lee, of the home; two daughters: Ashland Viscosi of Austin, TX and Alexandra Viscosi of Long Beach, CA; and one sister, Brenda Hooven and her husband Dave of Cincinnati, OH.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Vera Nelson; brother, Billy Cherry, and best friend and pet, Buster.
