Dale (Eddie) Johnson
February 19, 1958 – December 2, 2018
On Sunday, December 2nd, surrounded by his loving family, the gates of Heaven opened for Dale E. (Eddie) Johnson of Shreveport, LA after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer. Eddie (60) was born in Brownfield, TX and moved many times throughout his childhood as a part of a military family. He spent his senior year of high school in Shreveport, graduating from Captain Shreve High School. Growing up, Eddie was a diligent student and hard worker – saving enough money from mowing lawns to fund his college education. He attended Baylor University, where he studied business and met the love of his life, Sheryl. He graduated with an accounting degree in 1980, which led him to an accomplished career as a Certified Public Accountant – most recently the Chief Financial Officer of Eagle Distributing of Shreveport. Eddie and Sheryl started and raised their family in Louisiana, calling Shreveport home since 1988. He was known for his quick wit and dry sense of humor, always cracking jokes and getting a laugh out of people. All who knew Eddie knew the great love he had for his family. The ultimate family man, Eddie’s favorite times were those surrounded by his “girls” – wife, Sheryl and daughters, Lindsay and Anna. His love for his family was typified by his presence at every event, performance, game and even practice. He was actively involved in all his family’s endeavors, and in addition to the role of proud parent, was an integral part of the foundation and operation of Great Raft Brewing for many years. When he wasn’t working or at a family function, he could be found riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle throughout the region with his wife and friends. Services will be held at 11:00 AM on Thursday, December 6th at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home Chapel. Officiating will be Dr. Tom Harrison. The family will be receiving friends at 10:00 AM at the funeral home. Eddie is preceded in death by his parents, Dale and Maxine Johnson. He is survived by his loving wife of thirty-eight years, Sheryl; daughters Lindsay Nations and husband Andrew of Shreveport, LA and Anna Bauerle and husband Brandon of Mont Belvieu, TX. Eddie was a wonderfully devoted husband, father and friend who will be greatly missed and never forgotten by the many people whose lives he touched. Pallbearers will be Trey Rives, Robbie Malone, Jimmy Martin, Jarrod Horton, Johnny Rogers and Glynn Williams. Honorary pallbearers will be Don Smith, Dean Sandifer, Randy Fowler and Bubba Fuller. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the loving caregivers and nurses who cared for Eddie as he battled this illness.

Johnson Family, so sorry for your loss. Eddie was a great person. I had the godly opportunity to meet Eddie our freshman thru our junior years at Acadiana High School. We shared lots of great times together as we were teammate on the basketball team. He almost spent his senior year at our home but decided to move with his parents to Shreveport. I will truly miss Eddie.
