Billie Ray Johnson, Sr. was born April 26, 1932 in Clarks, LA and passed to his heavenly home October 24, 2021 at Plantation Manor Nursing Center, Winnsboro, LA after an extended illness. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Henry Johnson and Katie Bratton Johnson; his wife, Betty Hart Johnson; son, Billie Ray Johnson, Jr., and siblings: Esther McGuire, Curtis Johnson, Huey Pierce Johnson, and Purvis Johnson.

Mr. Johnson enjoyed fishing in his younger years but spent most of his time attending church or volunteering at church. For many years he was a member of First United Pentecostal Church in West Monroe. He served as a deacon there as well as always being on hand to fry fish or bar-b-que for church functions. Later in his life he moved to the New Living Way Pentecostal Church in Winnsboro where he continued to serve in any capacity he could until his health prevented his attendance.

Those left to cherish his memory are his son, Curtis Wayne Johnson, grandchildren: Katie Johnson and Brandon Johnson; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.
