What’s my secret? Well… Between you & I,
I just let the Parkinsons do all the work.”

Most recognized for: Johnny was a Georgia congressman for nearly 6 years before being elected to the Senate in 2004… where he faithfully carried the GOP torch and became the longest serving Senator in the state’s history. But an advanced case of Parkinsons left the old Georgia boy feeling a little less than peachy… and he gave up his seat in December of 2019. 2 years later, he gave up everything else.
