Obituary For Larry Johnson

The Johnson Family is sad to announce the passing of a loved one.

In Sylvester, GA on August 20, 1958, Lucious and Torlie Mae Johnson gave birth to a baby boy, Larry.
He was educated in the Worth County School System. Larry graduated a Worth County Ram as apart of the Class of 1978. He was also a member of St. Paul Ministries. Larry Married his Sweetheart, and life partner, Tangela on April 24, 2000
Larry was proud of who he was, and where he came from. So much so, that he rooted for all things Georgia. Larry was an Atlanta Falcons superfan and a Georgia Bulldogs supporter through and through.
Larry enjoyed dancing, cooking, and making the community he lived in a better place. You would often find him cooking and hosting giveaways with Men United Club, Inc. If you looked up the definition for a servant leader, there should be a picture of Larry close by. He took on leadership roles on numerous civic boards. Larry joined the Sylvester City Council in January of 1994 where he served Ward 4 and the City of Sylvester for over 28 years.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, JC Johnson and Luscious Johnson, Jr.; and two sisters, Irma Jean Johnson, and Ethel Johnson.
He leaves to cherish his memories, his loving wife of 20 years, Tangela Renee Johnson of Sylvester, GA; six daughters, Tiffany Johnson of Sylvester, GA, Brittney Smith of Sylvester, GA, Porsha Hillmon of Tifton, GA, Jasmin (Recordo) Jackson of Sylvester, GA, Shanice Johnson, and Simone Johnson; two sons, Terron (Alexjandra) Hamilton of Moultrie, GA, Dewayne (Beth) Clark of Waynesville, MO; four sisters, Sujette (Michael) Johnson of Sylvester, GA, Phyllis Johnson of Sylvester, GA, Runell Anthony of Snellville, GA, Daisy McGee of Carson, CA; three brothers, Clinton Johnson of Albany, GA, Jay Lee Johnson of Sylvester, GA, Terry Lee (Sherry) Johnson of Sylvester, GA; twenty-two grandkids; two great-grands; one mother-in-law, Mardean Sparrow; One father-in-law, Warren Cook, Jr.; and two brothers– in–law, Condidio Cook, and Otis Daniels; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

I write for the paper and was always calling Larry on Sunday as I was finishing up a story and needed to know one more fact. He was always polite, took his time to explain things fully and never talked down to me. I'll always remember that. And, if I had to ask a sensitive question, he'd tell me if he knew. Sylvester and Men United will miss him.

Rest in Peace Larry, you will be missed by many. Hope Renee and children can find comfort in each other at these difficult times
