On the beautiful day of July 4, 1961, I was blessed to be born to the now late, Thelma James Johnson and the late, Luther Johnson. They named me Felton Jerome Johnson.

At an early age, I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and joined the body of believers at the St. John AME Church, Plains, GA. I received my education in the public school system of Sumter County, GA, and graduated from Americus High School in 1980. I was an avid basketball player, and you could find me on the court, whether it be on McCoy Hill or the City Recreational League court. I was wherever the basketball was! I went on to further my education attending Fort Valley State University on a basketball scholarship in the position of point guard. I enjoyed life, and I enjoyed having the love of my children, family and friends.

On August 7, 2020, the Father spoke to me and said, “You have fought a good fight, you have finished the course, you have kept the faith.” Your mother, Thelma James Johnson and Father, Luther Johnson, await you. Your brother, James Johnson Jr, and your sister, Georgia Johnson, are also waiting for you. “…Enter into the joy of the Lord.”

Left to cherish my memories are my children: Anita Johnson Williams, Jonesboro, GA, Felton (Sheena) Johnson II, Montgomery, AL, Rashad Avery, Atlanta, GA, Kelton Davis, Forney, Tx and Malcolm Johnson, Riverdale, GA; my grandchildren: Eric Williams and Kylah Williams, Americus, GA, Daymian McCain, Favian Johnson, Jaedon Johnson, and Felton Johnson III, Montgomery, AL, and Jaylen Mills, Atlanta, GA; my brothers: Claude (Mary Ann) Johnson, Eddie Stephens, Hartford, CT and Douglas (Debra) Johnson, Powder Springs, GA; a devoted niece/sister: Gwynelle Johnson Mills, Glen Burnie, MD and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives also cherish my memories.
