Johnny Frickel, 41 passed away at his home on January 12, 2021. Johnny was born May 1, 1979 to parents Richard and Lynette Frickel in Billings, MT joining big brother Brandon. Johnny was raised in the Laurel area where he made numerous friends over the years that turned into family.

Johnny showed a love for his friends and family that was truly unconditional. The importance of love and respect for family was one of the most important values he held in life. When Johnny loved someone, he made sure that individual knew. Johnny could always bring a chuckle to the most uneasy situations offering comfort in times of need.

Johnny was a very intelligent individual who was continuously learning new skills in life and mastering whatever he set his mind on. He was a jack of all trades from boarding, petrology, construction and of course his passion for restoring old cars. Johnny displayed a passion for all he did in life that was admired by everyone.

Johnny was preceded in death by his father Rick, brother Jackson, grandparents Ruben and Leona Frickel, John and Charlotte Blackford. Johnny survived by his mother Lynette, brother Brandon, Aunt Linda Emineth, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins and his beloved dog Camaro.

To know and love Johnny was one of the greatest privileges in life. We will miss you.

Services will be held on January 23rd, 2021 at 11:00 AM at Smith Funeral Chapel in Laurel, Montana. Inurnment at a later date. Celebration of life following services at Smith’s Funeral Home will be at Laurel Union Hall 1009 East 6th Street in Laurel, Montana.

My heart is so sad at this tragic loss. I’m blessed to have known Johnny. I never dreamed that just a few short days before his passing would be the last time I would see my friend. My sincere condolences to his wonderful mother, Lynn, his brother Brandon, and all those who knew and loved him. RIP my friend!!
