My Father taught me many things about family, love and God’s word. He was the most loving and forgiving person I have ever known.
Memories of the good and bad times and how he always had a smile that was comforting flood my mind and heart.
Dad never stayed down in tough times he would take a deep breath and keep on going always praying and talking to God.
Happy memories of all his children gathered with coffee and Bibles ready to listen and study. He taught us John 3:16 as our first memory Bible verse. He talked to us about Psalms 23. He taught us many things through our giggles and laughter. But most of all he taught us how to live a Christian life by being an example as he followed Christ.
I will miss him here on earth but I look forward to seeing him in heaven.

I thank God for blessing me with a father that lived out examples of caring, hardworking, God loving, kindness, fun times, teaching, learning and gathering with loved ones. I have so many fond memories that I will always cherish. I will miss him so but have assurance that I will meet him again one happy day.

I was lucky to speak to Uncle Ray a few days ago. After i heard he passed i felt the need to draw a church he worked in and use some of his favorite quotes to support it. He was a large influence in my
Life as a small child. He made a difference in my life and many other's. RIP uncle Ray.

I am very sorry to hear of Brother Francis' passing. He was a gentle, kind man who shared his Lord and Savior with everyone he met. In addition he willingly led devotions and taught bible studies. He was also a skilled electrician and a volunteer in community building projects. We were blessed to enjoy many Sunday dinners with him and his beloved Nancy. We will miss him greatly.

I'm very sorry to hear of Francis' passing. He was a good man and a good neighbor. He will be missed, but I know he is happy now to be with the Lord and to see Nancy again.

I will always remember when Uncle Raymond would come each summer for a week long visit to see his family and partake in the annual Johnson family picnic. Time with him was special and I especially loved the Bible studies he would lead while he was here. My daughters and I along with my granddaughter loved to here him speak the word of God. My youngest Daughter Julia said it best... “when you were with Uncle Raymond, you just wanted to be still and quiet and take in all he was telling you” . He had many wild stories of growing up on the farm with his siblings too that made us all laugh and at times wonder how they survived all the crazy antics of their childhood. We all loved this sweet man dearly and no summer or family picnic will ever be the same without him but we are truly blessed to have the memories made with him and I will treasure every one.

I am so thankful for all the wonderful adventures Dad and I experienced while he walked out his life on earth but the most valuable one I will forever treasure is the one we walked together spiritually. He taught, trained and equipped me through Gods word to be a hard working and loyal servant and warrior for my God and my lord Jesus in the power of his Holy Spirit.

My memories of Raymond go back to mid 60's in small town of Shortsville, NY. He lived within site of our house and he walked us back to an old mill dam on the Canandaigua Lake Outlet feeding the Erie Canal. Then both our families moved to Tennessee late 60s, early 70s and we had Christmas at their home in Bulls Gap. Running his escaped cattle, learning how to milk, enjoying nature, were the things he shared with us. I know he has been well received in Heaven, as he was well loved here. Godspeed

I Met Brother Johnson at the full gospel meeting back in the late 1970s, and invited him and his family to come to the church and sing, Helen and I love the Johnson family and it was great joy when we would go out to eat and see Bro. Johnson and just stop and share with him and those in his present. May the peace of God rest upon the lovely family. God blessed...
