Obituary of David Demitri Johnson
David Demitri Johnson, born Dec 22, 1969 to Janet Carr, adored and raised by Arthur Ray Johnson Sr. David grew up in a military household with discipline and a lot of love. As a young boy, David
was always a very caring, loving, and loyal individual who loved his family very much. A highly protective older brother to all of his siblings. Later in his youth, David was introduced to his biological father and a wealth of younger siblings and cousins. His family grew leaps and bounds; he was so excited and loved every single one. Growing up with a curious mind and energy to match, he found himself in a situation that was not conducive to traditional schooling.
Instead, he chose to enroll in to the school of hard knocks. After many years of hands-on training, he eventually graduated with honors. He earned his stripes and achieved "Triple O.G." status. At least to those of us that know about that life, others may have thought of it as a little
different but loved him just the same; you could not help but to do so.
After a few relationships, bearing beautiful children, David met Tammy and she quickly became the love of his life. Three more beautiful children were conceived and became a blessing to the -
world. At this point in his life, he was as happy as any man could possibly be. A family man at heart, he loved all of his children with everything inside of him. Always one who loved to be at gatherings. David would often try to set-up events and get togethers of some kind, whether it was out at the river, the park, at a hotel hanging out at the pool, or just grilling at the house. He always wanted to get all of the kids and cousins together for a chaotic day or weekend. But, he mostly loved the holidays and everything that came with it, especially his G Mom's sugar cookies. He stood out in a crowd and could light up any room. Losing the love of his life, he could not help but to lose some of his spark. Today, that flame is reignited because he is back with his love. The brain controls the journey in life, the heart and soul control the journey thereafter. His light can no longer brighten a room, now it just shines down and brightens our days.
