Body Thomas “Danny” Johnstone passed peacefully from this life on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at his home in Ponca City, Oklahoma surrounded by the love of his close family. Danny was the 14th child born to Willie Barnes “W.B.” Johnstone and Octavia Walker Johnstone on January 14, 1933, in Hunnewell, Kansas. He grew up and spent most of his life in northern Oklahoma. During his early adulthood he worked as an oil driller. On February 14, 1953, he married Glenda Bilyeu and to that union were born two children, Pamela, and Brett. After the birth of his children, he began a career of law enforcement in Kay County, Oklahoma. Over 10 years he worked his way from jailer to Sheriff where he held office for another 10 years. On August 2, 1980, Danny married the love of his life, Dottie Christy, and became the stepfather to her two children, Mark, and Kimberly Woolley. After retiring from his role as sheriff, Danny worked several other jobs to fill his time. He greatly enjoyed hunting, camping, fishing, gardening, and anything else outdoors. He was proud to pass his traditions and knowledge of those things down to his children, grandchildren, and greatgrandchildren. Danny was also a proud member of several organizations including the Northern Oklahoma Southern Kansas Peace Officers and The Noon Lions Club.
