Grady "Buddy" Johnson, Jr

July 7, 1938 — June 9, 2012

Mr. Grady “Buddy” Johnson, Jr. age 73 of Mossy Head passed away early Saturday, June 9, 2012 in a Crestview Healthcare Facility. He was born July 7, 1938 in Pine Apple, Alabama the son of Grady Eley Johnson, Sr. and Maude Lillian Branch Johnson. “5 Speed”, as he was known by his family and close friends, loved hunting and fishing and spending time with his family and friends. He was an avid dog hunter and loved to hear the dogs run. He also loved fishing and nothing tickled him more than having his whole family around him while he was fishing. Christmas Eve was one of his favorite times of the year because he would have most of his children and grandchildren around him. Those that weren’t there were contacted to feel closer to them. Buddy was a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Mossy Head. He is predeceased by his wife Nora Dell Gainey Johnson who passed away in 2001.

Among survivors are his children, Donald, Ronald and Angie, Barbara, Jimmy and Roy and wife Caroline. His brothers and sisters, Nyoka Cawthon, Joyce Blair and husband Bert, Royce and wife Lola, Allen and wife Regina, Ruby Nell Heisler and J.R., and Howard and wife Connie. His half brother, Otis and his half sister, Evelyn Guttium. His grandchildren, Rebecca, Jacob, Ryan, Megan, Ashley, Taylor and Krystal and his great grand daughter Peyton. Special friends, John White, Ted Wise, Trish Porter Hutchison and Tom Terrell also survive.
