Roy Allen Johnson was born of 15 siblings. He was born on December 29, 1953, in Ecorse, Michigan, to the union of Lydia B. Johnson Norrils and Robert Lee Johnson. The angels of the Lord ushered Roy into God's presence on August 23, 2019.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Lee Johnson and Lydia B. Johnson Norrils; step-mother, Mrs. Brona Johnson; siblings, Dornell Johnson, Florene Johnson and Luther (Cookie) Norrils.

Roy Allen Johnson accepted Jesus when he was young, but rededicated his life and re-established his relationship with the Lord in the past few years. He was a member of Victory Life Church, where Rev. Eric Sherman is the pastor.

In grade school and junior high school, he played baseball, a sport that he really loved, enjoyed and was very good at. His desire was to be a professional, but destiny had other plans. He attended Woodward High School and a few years later, while in Defiance, he met his wife to be, Felipa Urbina. They met through a friend of his brother, Kevin Michael. He told his friend that he needed her to find a girlfriend for his brother, so she did. His wife said that when she met him, "It was love at first site. I fell straight in love." Later, Roy became a member of Local 500, where he was a Concrete/Cement Finisher for years, until he retired.

If anyone knows our brother, they know that he was born to sing, and he loved doing it! He was a member of the group "Mod Squad" in his earlier years, in which he sang falsetto. He also sang in church when he was younger. He enjoyed singing to his wife on a regular basis. She said that she had made a video of him singing to her two weeks before he had passed, and he still sounded good! God has truly blessed the Johnson/Norrils family with a gift to sing and play instruments. We give God all the praise.

Roy was a family man and loved all of his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, his brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. They were all "his favorites."

He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife, Felipa Johnson; his eldest son, Jermaine Johnson, Jimmy Urbina, Robert Lee Johnson III, Ashley Lydia Johnson, John B. Urbina, Chatavia Hinton; his beautiful grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews; siblings, Adalaide (Maurice) Fields, Eddie (Willa) Norrils, Will (Jameelah) Johnson, Michael (Darlene) Lane, Mrs. Lesli Rogers, Lora Vell (Ronnie) Blanton, Brenda (Renard) Russell, Ms. Brona Lynn Johnson, Robert (Jackie) Johnson Jr., Lila Ann (Keith) Johnson, Bethany (David) Brooks; uncle, Ben (Heather) Lane; special cousin, David Darnell; his extended family, the McCoy family; and a host of family and friends.
