The family of Johnny Cash, in this sad hour, is greatly comforted by the outpouring of love and respect for his remarkable life. We also take solace in the knowledge that he is again reunited with his dearest companion, June. Our lives and indeed, the entire planet, will forever feel the emptiness of his loss, but his music and the greatness of his spirit will endure. He is preceded in death by his parents, Carrie and Ray Cash; brothers, Jack and Roy Cash; sister, Louise Garrett; and his beloved wife of 35 years, June Carter Cash. He is survived by his daughters, Rosanne Cash Leventhal (John), Kathleen Cash Tittle (Jimmy), Cynthia Cash Panetta (Eddie) and Tara Cash Schwoebel (Frederick); son, John Carter Cash (Laura); 15 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; brother, Tommy Cash; sisters, Reba Hancock and JoAnne Cash Yates; and 17 nieces and nephews. Out of respect to the family, visitation and the funeral will be private. Active Pallbearers: John Jackson Routh, Thomas Gabriel Coggins, Ted Rollins, Marty Stuart, Larry Gatlin, Randy Scruggs, Michael Rollins, Tony Bisceglia and James Dustin Tittle.
