Henry  Johnson Jr.
Henry Johnson, age 92, went to be with the Lord on June 23, 2018 after a lengthy illness. Born in Sharon, Mississippi, Henry was the youngest of 14 children of Henry and Annie Thompson Johnson. Henry spent most of his life in Laurel, MS before moving to the Gulf Coast. Henry was a member of Wildwood Baptist Church in Laurel. He served in the Army during World War II and was stationed in Italy. Henry was the recipient of several citations for his courageous service, including the EAMETO Ribbon with three Bronze Stars, Good Conduct Medal, and the World War II Victory Medal. A welder/pipe fitter by trade, Henry retired from Ingalls Shipbuilding. Even at the age of 92, Henry's mind was still very keen. He kept up with current events and sports. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren held a very special place in his heart.

In addition to his parents, Henry is preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Frances Hanberry Johnson, son-in-law, Joseph Hightower, and his thirteen siblings.

Henry's survivors include his daughter, Deborah Hightower, his son, Chris Johnson, and wife Cindy; grandchildren, Teresa and Jason Kennedy, Christini Ingram, Matthew and Kristen Hightower, Patrick and Kaylee Johnson, and Dustin Johnson; great-grandchildren, Skylar and Ashlan Broadus, Fallon Kennedy, Grayson, Gabby, and Madison Hightower, and Noah Johnson; and his numerous nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Matthew Hightower, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Johnson, Michael Hillman, Mike Hillman, and Calvin Moore.

Funeral services will be held at 11:30 am on Friday, June 29, 2018 at Southern Mississippi Funeral Services with Rev. Murphy Dale Young officiating.
