    God definitely gained an angel with Linwood Mallory Johnson ..He was one of the nicest men I have

    Linwood will always be remembered for his smile, humor, and willingness to help others. You would see him in a variety of roles from Postal Clerk, Electrolux Salesman, Farmer, Church leader, and Stewmaster; all of which he enjoyed. He loved family and rarely missed an opportunity to be with family and friends. What a life he lived and blessings to Rosa and family.
