Mr. Arthur James "Stick" Johnson was born on August 16, 1940, in Dade City, Florida. He was the only son of the Late Mrs. Nannie Mae Johnson and the Late David Thomas Johnson. Mr. Johnson confessed Christ at an early age. He joined Mt. Zion AME Church, Dade City, Florida, and was actively involved in the Allen Christian Endeavor League, the Sunday School, and served on the Usher Board. After leaving Dade City, he was affiliated with several Protestant churches until, according to him, he came to the realization that there is a very distinct difference between religion and Christianity. He was ordained an Elder in 2002 and toiled tirelessly for the Lord until the end. His assignment from God was to bring others to Christ; making him a strong proponent of the Great Commission. Brother Johnson was united in holy matrimony to the Late Mrs. Lou Jean Dansby Johnson in 1965. From that union, one son, Spencer, was born. Mr. Johnson was an entrepreneur; having manufactured several hair care products. On Thursday, May 28, 2020, he received his angel wings when he heard the Master's call. Brother Johnson's memories will forever be cherished by family and the many lives that he impacted: His son, Spencer Dansby; one grandson, Barry; three loving sisters, Dr. Betty J. Smith, Jacqueline P. Williams, and Carolyn Y. Timmons; five siblings who preceded him in death; Jesse L. Johnson, Frank Johnson, Reva Coleman, Mary A. Dorsett and Constance J. Wright; a most devoted and loving niece, Brenda J. Roberts; one brother-in-law, Larry D. Wright; and a host of sorrowful nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; three very special and devoted friends, Rosita Graham, Twanda Jonesia and Marisol Jonesia.
