Randolph “Randy” Johnson

Randy is at peace. He is home with the loves of his life, Jesus and Louise, along with family and friends. He and Louise are dancing down the streets of gold, and anyone who knows Randy, knows he is looking for his fishing buddies to find out where to cast a line.

Randolph was born on October 23, 1923 to Abbie Gardner of Greenwood, MS, and Randolph Johnson, Sr., of Bergen, Norway. He attended Fair Park High School, where he was in the ROTC, and was a proud U.S. Navy veteran serving in World War II. Randy often shared stories with his family about his life, from cranking his father’s Model T, shenanigans in his 1938 Oldsmobile, and adventures in the Navy, to name a few. He was stationed on Guadalcanal during World War II and shared the history of the war in the Pacific. Randy was a simple man who loved and provided a wonderful home for his family. He was always willing and happy to teach or help others, and lived by the motto “Faith, Family, and Friends”.

Preceding him in heaven are his parents, wife of nearly 70 years, his “Lovie-June” Louise, and sister Margaret Watts.

Those who will cherish his memory and legacy are: son, Randall G. Johnson of Doyline; daughter, Connie Watson and husband Keith of Joshua, TX; grandchildren, Garrett, Mollee, Karen, JV, Randy, Crystal, and Patrick. He also leaves behind six “great-grand guys” Dylan, Ryhan, Jase, Chad, Brayden, and Ben, as well as his sister, Betty Green and husband Vance.

The family would like to thank Community Hospice of Texas, especially Lori, Rose, Lynn, and Renee. You ladies were our angels on earth and we are forever grateful for your compassion, love, and care.

Visitation with the family will be held from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Thursday, November 19, 2020, at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home. A graveside service will follow at 2:00 p.m. at Centuries Memorial Park. Brother Harrell Shelton will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, the family request memorials be made to Airline Baptist Church Building Fund.

Anchors Aweigh, daddy – you will be in our hearts forever. Until we meet once more, here’s wishing you a happy voyage home!

“Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16

I've known this family since I was in high school. Mr. Johnson was an easy going man who was quick to smile or share a story. He loved his Savior, his family and his nation, in that order. He was steady - someone on whom you could depend. He was an example to follow as a man of God, a husband and a father. Enjoy being with your girl in heaven. Until we meet again.

I am so so sorry for your loss. We lived down the street from y’all growing up. Your Mom and Dad were both so sweet, kind and were always at church with all of us. Love. Gloria

Randolph and Connie. Our condolences to you. Great to know he is with our Lord and what a comfort that is. We lived a few houses down from you all on Drexel. I am Jack’s sister. He was always smiling and always has his boat in drive way! Great memories for y’all until you meet again!

I will always cherish the wonderful memories I have
of my Uncle Junior. He was always so much fun
to be around when I was a child. He loved to
cook his venison or fried fish meals for me and
my family. We had wonderful times around his
table, with laughter, jokes and hearts full of joy.
After I had grown up, Uncle Junior remained the
same sweet, kind, gentle man I knew as a child whose laughter
would fill everyone's heart with joy.
