He is also survived by three siblings: Evelyn Johnson, Nez Loyd, and Johnny D. Johnson and wife, Arlene; along with his nieces and nephews. One of his greatest joys was being “Papaw” to his four grandchildren: Kinsley Johnson, Cole Johnson, Zoey Carter, and Dylan Carter. He was preceded in death by his father, James Henry Johnson.
