OBITUARY: Jeffery Johnson

Jeffery Johnson, 64, of Rockingham, went to be with the Lord, surrounded by his loving family, Wednesday, July 3, 2024, at Richmond County Hospice Haven.

Jeffery was a son of the late C.M. Johnson and Patsy Earwood Johnson and was born in Rome, Georgia.

Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his siblings John Johnson, Lloyd Johnson and Boyd Johnson.

Jefferey spent his early years in Rome, Georgia, until his parents moved to Richmond County when he was the age of 12. He would then grow up in the Rockingham community and graduate from Richmond Senior High School in 1978. For many years he worked as a lab technician at Ina Bearing. Outside of work, Jeffery enjoyed remote control airplanes and watching motocross. Jeffery loved being outside hunting, archery or shooting his guns. He was a lover of classic rock and played the guitar and sang to many of his favorite songs.

Above all, Jeffery was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. Jeffery was a man of God who lived for the Lord. Serving his Lord and Savior was a big part of who he was as a person. He is a righteous man who will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
