Also preceding him in death were sons, Ray and Phillip, parents, Jarvis and Maggie, and brother, Harold. Monroe was rarely seen without a smile. He loved to laugh and enjoyed a good joke or story and readily provided both. Above all, Monroe Johnson was a man of faith, eagerly sharing the love of Jesus at every opportunity. He loved his Lord, his family and his country. He daily celebrated the life he was given. He will be missed and remembered with a smile by all who were lucky enough to have known him.
