Randy, a staple in his community, passed away peacefully on June 21, 2024 at his residence in Cullman. Born on August 25, 1968 in Cullman, Randy lived a life filled with passion, skill, and an enduring love for family and the outdoors. 

A master carpenter by trade, Mr. Johnson was known for his exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. His work can be seen in many structures throughout the area, each piece reflecting his dedication and talent. In addition to carpentry, Randy had a special talent for painting and enjoyed capturing the beauty of wildlife and scenic landscapes with his brush. 

His artwork adorned the walls of his home and the homes of many fortunate friends and family members. Fishing was one of Randy’s greatest joys. He spent countless hours on the water, sharing his love for the sport with friends and family. He also had a knack for working on lawn mowers, often spending countless afternoons tinkering and repairing them for neighbors and friends. His willingness to help anyone in need was a testament to his generous spirit and kind heart. Above all, Randy cherished his role as a grandfather. 

He adored his grand babies and made it a priority to spend as much time with them as possible, creating memories that will be cherished forever. His gentle nature and playful spirit made him a favorite among the youngest members of his family. Randy had a profound love for the outdoors. Whether he was fishing, drawing, or simply enjoying the beauty of nature, he found peace and happiness outside. 

His appreciation for the natural world was evident in everything he did.

He will be deeply missed by all who knew him, but his spirit will live on in the hearts of those he touched.
