Obituary

Johnny Walter Ainsworth (Frog), 53, of Quinton, NJ peacefully passed away on Saturday, May 21, 2022, at Cooper University Hospital surrounded by his family.

He was born on November 5, 1968, in Galveston, Texas, son of the late Darrell and Linda (Parker) Ainsworth of Louisiana. In 1977 at the young age of 9, Frog was diagnosed with Hodgekin’s disease, therefore he spent many years in and out of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. At 15 Frog went into remission. Hearing the words “cancer survivor” shaped him into the strong and courageous man he became. A few years after high school, Frog traveled to New Jersey in search of a great vacation with friends but instead found his forever home. He had several jobs before finding his 14 year career with Aqua Tech Well Drilling. At the end of his well drilling career, he moved on to Marlboro Farm Market, which he truly enjoyed. He was currently with CW Services acting as a warehouse manager alongside many great friends and the shop cat Fred. Throughout the years in Frog’s spare time he was coaching youth league soccer and baseball, bowling with his family in bowling leagues, cheering on his favorite football team “The Cowboys”, and last but not
least, supporting anything affiliated with Nascar. Frog was a man of many talents. Whether he was drawing something, building something, or landscaping, it was true artistry. Frog was a kind, caring, and giving person, especially with people in the communities. He dedicated himself to family and friends, and anyone in need. Frog served the Quinton Ambulance Squad for the past 15 years as an active member. During his time on the squad, he has held the positions of engineer, lieutenant, and transport officer. Frog was also a past president and captain of The Fenwick Volunteer Ambulance Squad, current active member of the Lower Alloways Creek Ambulance Squad, and Mannington Fire Company. Frog was also active in the New Jersey State First Aid Council, currently acting as a chairman (president) of District 4. His greatest achievement in his time of serving the community as an EMT was delivering three babies.

Frog is survived by his son Jonathan Edward (Samantha) Kyle, his daughter Chastity Dawn (Jacqueline) Ainsworth, his granddaughters, Isabella Joyce Kyle, Anastasia Marie Kyle, his cats, Thunder and Penelope, his bestfriends James (Dawn) Wisnieski, along with their daughter Skyy Wisnieski, and past Father In Law John Kyle. Also survived by his sister, Donna (Ronnie) McElroy, his brothers Darrell (Susan) Ainsworth, Billy (Srena) Ainsworth, his sister Victoria Ainsworth Schmidt, several nieces and nephews and many close friends he made along the way. Frog was preceded in death by Sheba Ainsworth, his beloved cat.
