Our deepest sympathy goes out to the entire Johnson family and friends for the loss of your loved one.

Byron was many things to many people. To me, he was a plethora of knowledge and assistance, who never met a stranger. He will be sorely missed by all who were blessed to know him.

Respectfully,

Doris, and the Allen family.

I began working with Byron in 2014. From the 1st phone call to the last time I had the pleasure of seeing him, in the office, he has been nothing but kind, helpful, respectful, humorous, caring and someone that myself and many others have always been proud to call a friend!

Byron was the epitome of "Hard Working"! He loved his family and always stood for what he believed in. He stuck his neck out for his employees and co-workers, when he felt they deserved and needed it.

He took care of those who took care of him and I will forever think of him when I eat a chocolate covered pecan, as he always took time out of his busy schedule during the Christmas Holidays to drive from AL to TN bringing his favorite coworkers a tin of them <3

My deepest sympathy and condolences are with his family and all who loved and cherished him. He will be greatly missed by his work family!

~ Godspeed, my friend!
