Johnny Lucky Biography

John Michael Bartish, also known as "Johnny Lucky" was born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised in Chester, Pennsylvania. A year after graduating from Chester High School he enlisted in the United States Army. For the first three years of his military career Johnny was assigned to the Military Police. Upon reaching the age of 21 Johnny became a Special Agent assigned to the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command, better known as CID. Johnny held a variety of assignments and spent more than half of his career overseas which gave him the opportunity to see the world.

During his military career Johnny had the opportunity to further his civilian education. He earned an Associates degree and a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice with the University of Nebraska. Later, while assigned to the Fort Benning, Georgia CID office he earned a Masters degrees in Criminal Justice with Troy State University.

Johnny retired from military service in 2000. He lives in beautiful sunny southern Arizona where the sun shines 350 days a year and people do not shovel snow.

Johnny became interested in computers in the 1980's. In December 1984 he purchased his first personal computer - a genuine IBM desktop pc. He's been upgrading hardware and building pc's ever since. He also builds pc's for his friends and other individuals.

But that's not all he does. Johnny also hangs out in the members forum at Tom's Hardware, a site that is very popular with pc gamers, enthusiasts, and novices. He volutarily answers questions about pc hardware, components, and peripherals. After answering questions for several years, Johnny, who is a forum veteran, amassed quite a large collection of reference material.

Keeping track of and finding all the reference material proved to be a difficult task. There were too many bookmarks, URL's, and articles. One day Johnny decided he needed to organize all of the reference material he collected into something manageable. What better way to do it than by creating a web site. The end result is the Johnny Lucky Web Site.

Johnny freely shares information to improve collective knowledge of pc's.

You might be wondering why Johnny is wearing western clothing in the photos. The answer is simple. In 2004 Johnny answered a call for volunteers to perform in wild west skits during the annual Helldorado Days in Tombstone - the town too tough too die. The town was the site of the infamous gunfight at the OK Corral. It didn't take long for Johnny to become a wild west fan.

Soon after that fateful day Johnny joined the Tombstone Regulators, a historical reenactment group, and found himself performing on the streets of Tombstone during festivals. He also appeared in a theatrical performance with the Tombstone Repertory Company. Later he joined the Territorial Troupers located in Tucson and continued performing in historical reenactments. The Troupers raised funds for a local charity.

Johnny's association with Tombstone and historical reenactments led to a unique experience. Johnny and fellow reenactors appear as background actors and extras in western films, television documentaries about the wild west, and community college student film projects.

What a great hobby!
