Tom Ellis "Bubba" Johnson
October 27, 1931 - March 22, 2020
Tom (Bubba) Ellis Johnson was born October 27, 1931 to the late Reverend Joseph Johnson, Sr., and Alma Pittman Johnson in Bogalusa, LA. He was married to Doris Patten Johnson, later to Minnie Lewis Johnson.
Tom was a member of Sweet Beulah Baptist Church (Bogalusa, LA) where Rev. James Magee is Pastor. He sang bass and loved singing in the choir until his health failed. “Bubba” was a handy man. He enjoyed mowing lawns and gardening. In his past time, he would listen to his favorite gospel music and sing gospel songs with his family…and let’s not forget his hot cup of coffee he thoroughly enjoyed; no matter how hot it was outside, he still wanted his coffee. He was kind to others and always had a friendly smile.
Tom was preceded in death by wives; Doris and Minnie; brothers, Ernest Taylor, Joseph Johnson, Jr., and Rev. Willie J. Johnson; sisters Twin-Baby Girls Johnson, Viola Taylor Cole, Selena Johnson Wooley, Kathleen Johnson Henry and Hazel Johnson Steptoe.
He leaves to mourn, a brother Eddie Johnson, Sr.; a stepsister Mary Galloway; a special niece, Jeanette Johnson and a host of nieces and nephews.
