Roy F. Johnson

March 24, 1950 — April 22, 2024


In loving memory of Roy F. Johnson, 74, a man whose life was a testament to dedication, honor, and service. Born on March 24, 1950, in Jamaica Queens, New York, Roy's journey on this Earth came to a peaceful close on April 22, 2024, in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Roy's story is one of unwavering commitment and profound impact. After graduating from Douglas High School in Douglas, Arizona in 1968, he pursued higher education at Cochise Jr. College before ultimately earning his Bachelor's degree from Arizona State University in Tempe in 1972. Following his academic achievements, Roy embarked on a remarkable career path that began with 24 years of distinguished service as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force. His deployment to Vietnam and the Persian Gulf exemplified his courage and selflessness in defense of his country.

Upon concluding his military tenure, Roy transitioned to a role at American Airlines where he dedicated an impressive 29 years of his life. His work ethic and professionalism left an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of crossing paths with him.

Roy was a beloved husband to Sandra L. Johnson, a devoted father to Shea Nicole Johnson and Raiman Johnson, and a cherished step-father to Louis Stuart Taylor. He was also a beloved brother to Susie Khalil, Doug Johnson, Gary Johnson, and Barry Johnson. He was also close to his ex- wife Vicki Johnson, where they maintained a friendship.  The memories and love shared with each member of his family will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

In the great tapestry of Roy's life are woven the memories of his parents Walter Kenneth Johnson and Gertrude Marie Johnson, as well as his son Kenneth Gene Johnson who have all gone before him. Each held a unique bond with Roy which time nor distance can diminish.

Roy leaves behind a legacy carried forward by his grandchildren: Louis Sean Taylor, Kyle Patrick Taylor, Michael Collin Taylor, and Evan Connor Taylor. Through them, his spirit lives on - a beacon of wisdom and love guiding them through life's journey.

In honoring Roy F. Johnson's memory today, we celebrate not only the man he was but also the profound impact he had on all those around him. His laughter will echo through the halls of memory, his kindness will be remembered in every act of goodwill done in his name. As we bid farewell to a remarkable soul whose light graced our lives so brightly, let us find solace that he now rests in peace after a life well-lived.

Rest easy now, Roy F. Johnson - your duty faithfully done; your spirit forever cherished; your memory eternally revered.
