    He was a member of the Caldwell Church of Christ.  He loved the church and the other members of the congregation and rarely missed attending services.
    Survivors include his wife, Rachel; one son and daughter-in-law, James E. and Brenda Johnson; three daughters and one son-in-law, Margie McGee, Shirley and Melvin Landers, and Wanda Pierson; fifteen grandchildren, Vicki McIntire, Beth Camero, Kathy Haynes, Mary McGee, Greg Clopton, David Clopton, Karma Dorbrusky, Brian John son, Gina Bosch, Josh Johnson, Kris Johnson, Diane Atkinson, Donna Gabbitas, Dan Pierson, and Julie Pearson; 23 great-grandchildren; one brother, Vernon Johnson; three sisters and one brother-in-law, Lora and Bill Hunt, Lenora Moore, and Louise Longden, all of Oklahoma.
