Randall Jene Johnson was born on July 4, 1942, Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the son of RJ and Eunice Edna (Ford) Johnson. His family moved to Tulsa where he graduated from Berryhill Schools, Tulsa, Oklahoma. His higher education earned a BA Degree from Free Will Baptist College in Nashville, Tennessee.
He fell in love & married Carole (Pulliam) Johnson on February 20, 1965. Together they raised three sons, Randall, Randy, Kevin, & Stephen. Those left to cherish his memory includes his wife of 52 years, Carole, sons Randy Johnson and wife Theresa of Gideon, Kevin Johnson and wife Leslie of Virginia Beach, VA, and son Stephen Johnson and wife Mindy of Tulsa. He lives on in his grandchildren Mikenzi Johnson, Chloe Johnson, RJ Johnson, Katelyn Johnson & Jamie Milam, husband Blake, and great grandson Caleb Grosser.
Randall has a surviving Uncle, John Jack Johnson and wife Ruby of Tahlequah. He also leaves special cousins, Billy Bailey, Dan Johnson, John Johnson, Geraldine Gibson and many other loved family members.
Doris Pulliam, sister in law, moved here upon retirement to assist with Randalls care. Her children and grandchildren as well as Marguerite Jernigan, sister in law, her children and son-in law, held special places in his heart.
He worked 20 years at Ft. Howard and later as a Funeral Directors Assistant at Reed-Culver Funeral Home, serving the families he cared for in the Tahlequah Community for 10 years. He took care of the smallest details, ensuring their comfort with his compassion. He always went the extra mile.
When he wasnt working, he was with those he loved the most, his family. He loved traveling, bird watching and reading.
He was a Christian by faith and lived his life so everyone around him saw his life as an example. He always put the Lord first in all things and hoped his family and friends did the same. He loved family togetherness at holidays and any occasion everyone could be together. The Lord called this good and faithful servant home at age 75 from his many labors, January 15, 2018 at home, surrounded by family. He leaves a void that will be impossible to fill.
The family expresses thanks to Angel Care Home Health and Physicians Choice Hospice during this time through the difficult journey, with the wonderful care and compassion that Randall received from them.
The family requests those wishing to express their condolences to consider donation to Adventures in Missions World Race for Mikenzi Johnson, Randall's granddaughter, PO Box 742570, Atlanta, GA, 30374-2570.
