Gerald Warren Johnson


Gerald "Jerry" Warren Johnson passed away on April 11, 2019 at the age of 77. Jerry was born in Seminole, Oklahoma on May 5, 1941 and moved to Arizona in 1943. He lived the majority of his life between Arizona and Colorado.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, John Lucian and Hester Lee, his brothers Ricky and Bobby, and his sister Dorma. Jerry is survived by his wife Jan, his sister Lucy, his brother H.L., his children Randy, Melanie, Todd, and Brian, and five grandchildren.

Jerry served in the Navy and was a successful entrepreneur. He founded his own pest control company, food catering business, and a Kona Ice franchise. But Jerry's greatest passions were his Christian faith, cooking, helping others and enjoying spending time with his grandchildren.

His heart broke for underprivileged children and families in need and he was able to use his catering business to reach out to them and be the hands and feet of Jesus by providing hot meals and clothing. He will be sorely missed and will forever be held precious in our hearts and minds.

A memorial service and reception will be held for Jerry at Advantage Crystal Rose Funeral Home at 9155 West Van Buren Street, Tolleson, Arizona, on April 17th at 12:00 noon. Interment will follow in National Memorial Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations can be made in memoriam of Jerry Johnson to Discovery Church Outreach Program, Colorado Springs, at
