Richard L. Johnson

September 14, 1943 — August 13, 2022

Richard L. Johnson
78 of Bargersville, passed away on August 13, 2022, at his home, surrounded by his family. Richard was born on September 14, 1943 at home in Centerton, Indiana to the late Charles Johnson and Wilma (Terrell) Johnson.

Richard proudly and honorably served in the U. S. Army for 11 years, during the Vietnam War, where he was awarded the Purple Heart and Silver Star for his heroism and valor. He returned home to work as a mechanic and was owner and operator of D&B Trucking for many years. Richard enjoyed being with family, proud of his country upbringing and being outdoors mowing. He was a member of the Centerton Christian Church, Quincy Masonic Lodge and Tri County Tractor Pullers Association. He will be remembered as a well-respected, knowledgeable, generous man who would help anyone in need, whether it was fixing a car, charging air conditioners, or mowing yards for family and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife, Beverly Johnson; brothers Bill Johnson, Bob Johnson; stepdaughter Theresa Sublette and a son Nicholas Johnson.

He is survived by his sons Ernest (Kelly) Johnson, Richy (Terrieny) Johnson; daughters Bianca (Eli) Stinson, JoAnn (Craig) Emmert; stepchildren William Todd Sublette, Tracy Sublette, Terri Poe; sister Laura Payne; 15 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews who will miss him dearly and will always remember his trademark saying, “If you would just listen to me.”

Family and friends will gather to celebrate Richards’ life on Friday, August 19th from 12pm-2pm at Carlisle Branson Funeral Service & Crematory, Mooresville, with services beginning at 2:00pm Friday in the funeral home. Burial will follow the services in Centerton Cemetery.
