Midlothian, TX

Johnny W. Johnson, a resident of Midlothian, TX was born on February 13, 1939, in Plainview, Texas. He passed peacefully on February 7, 2024, during a brief hospital stay after experiencing a sudden onset bleed into the brain tissue that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. Johnny is survived by his wife of 65 years, Beth Johnson (Creel), his son Shannon Johnson (Tammy, children Logan/Micayla, Kyle, Kaylee/Skyler) of Michigan, and daughter Shayne Johnson (Melanie, deceased) of Coppell, TX, and 3 great grandchildren. Johnny’s parents were ranchers, and his childhood was spent growing up and working on large cattle ranches. In his grade school years Johnny’s parents moved from Plainview, Texas to the San Louis Valley in Colorado to own and operate a seven section ranch. During Johnny’s early high school years his parents moved from Colorado to Loco, Oklahoma to own and operate the Stardust Ranch. Johnny and Beth graduated in 1957 from Loco High School in Loco, Oklahoma after which Johnny attended Cameron University for one year. Johnny and Beth married on June 20, 1958, in Loco, Oklahoma at the Stardust Ranch. Their son Shannon was born in July 1959 and their daughter Shayne was born in October 1963. From 1958 through 1961 Johnny worked at Arkla Gas Company. In 1963 Johnny and Beth moved to Duncan, Oklahoma and built their home on Comanche Lake Road. From 1962 to 1979 Johnny worked at Security National Bank in various positions of increasing responsibility including teller, manager of the drive-in bank and Vice President of Operations. He was employed at Halliburton Services for 26 years from 1980 until his retirement in 2006. At Halliburton, the majority of his work was at the research center in Chemical Research in the Cement Section. Johnny worked as a research technician building prototype equipment for use in simulating oil drilling and formation conditions for development of new products, processes, and technologies for Halliburton’s customers. In 2012 Johnny and Beth moved to Midlothian, Texas. Johnny turned his attention to making improvements to their home, getting to know and help his neighbors, providing for Beth’s care and becoming active in events in his subdivision and in the local car club. Johnny’s friends and family largely view him as the person who can design, build, or fix almost anything and the neighbor who has and knows how to use all the tools needed to complete any project. One of Johnny’s earliest loves was restoring antique cars – he has had many cars over the years and his current favorites are a ’46 Ford Woody Wagon, a ’54 Mercury Monterey Sun Valley, a ’66 Chevrolet Suburban, and a ’94 GMC Sierra C1500. Johnny has always been an active member of antique car clubs. While living in Duncan he was a member of the Hi-Lifters Car Club and after moving to Midlothian he became a member of the Midlothian Classic Wheels Car Club. Another of Johnny’s passions was a love for snow skiing. He didn’t learn to ski until his late 50’s, but he quickly fell in love with the sport, the beautiful scenery, and the joy of going on annual ski trips. His favorite place to snow ski was Lake Tahoe, California. The majority of Johnny’s ski trips were with his daughter and 8-10 of her close friends – to whom Johnny quickly became a “second dad” and a lifelong friend. A celebration of life gathering will be held for the family and many friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation in Johnny’s name to one or more of the following organizations: Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org) or St. Jude Children’s Hospital (www.stjude.org).
