Mr. Johnston was born March 12, 1941 in Phenix City, AL son of the late Richard Luther Johnston and Louise Chadwick Johnston. He was a U. S. Navy veteran and an active member of Hatchechubee Christ of Christ. Mr. Johnston was always helping others to fix or repair almost anything. This was something he greatly enjoyed. He also enjoyed his family and was known as the “communicator” as he kept up with everyone. We will miss him deeply; however, he has left a lasting impression on our family.
