David Jack Johnson

David Jack Johnson passed away on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. After sixty-eight years of adventure, learning, setbacks, determination, courage, laughter, and grace, David was called home to the Lord. A celebration of the life of David Jack Johnson will be at 2 o'clock in the afternoon on Friday, May 20, 2016 at Temple Baptist Church. Interment will follow at Lieb Cemetery. Arrangements are entrusted to Morrison Funeral Directors. David grew up a third generation farmer in Morse, Texas. He attended Texas Tech University and then returned to his family's farm. He was a dedicated farmer who took great pride and care of his land, crops, equipment, and animals. David loved deep fried Southern food smothered in gravy, cheeseburgers and fries, Western movies, teasing his family, and Reese's peanut butter cups. Not necessarily in that order. Everyone who knew him regarded his light-hearted spirit, calm demeanor, and quiet strength. David was preceded in death by his parents, Jack, Jr. and Wilma. David was extremely loving and proud of his three daughters, Alexis, Lisa, and Amanda. He is also survived by his dedicated wife Gail; his brother and best friend, Mike and his wife Carla; his sister Kaye; his two delightful step-daughters; five son-in-laws; ten precious grandchildren; as well as his many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and other friends In lieu of flowers the family suggest memorials be made to The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, Radnor Station Building 2, Suite 320, 290 King of Prussia Road, Radnor, PA 19087 or the Temple Baptist Church building fund, 311 N. Maddox, Dumas, TX 79029.

David was one of my favorite people! He loved his daughters and life, and always had that big smile on his face. I am so sorry he did not live longer to enjoy his grandchildren. He would have been a wonderful grandad.
