Albert Johnson

Albert Johnson, of Waco, fell asleep in death on Sunday, June 21, 2020.

Service Information: Graveside service will be held 11:00 a.m., Saturday, June 27, at Oakwood Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday, June 26, at Lake Shore Funeral Home.

Albert Johnson was born on September 22, 1950 in Waco, Texas.  He was the eldest son of the late AJ and Inez Johnson of Crawford.  Albert was raised in Crawford, Texas and attended Crawford and McGregor schools.  He graduated from Crawford High School in 1969.

During his senior year, Albert met and began courting the love of his life, Carolyn Crain, whom he would soon marry and begin the joyous adventures of starting and raising a family.

Albert worked diligently and tirelessly as a Lineman for Texas Power & Light (TP&L), which was later renamed TXU Energy, then subsequently Oncor, for 36 years and retired in March 2006.  Following retirement, he enjoyed spending time with his family (especially playing with his grandchildren), various home projects (including at his children’s homes), and spending time in his yard.  Everyone who has met and visited with Albert recalls his genuine care and concern for others, how industrious he was in each and every aspect of his life, and the contagious smile he so handsomely wore and shared.

Albert loved and treasured his family while always making great sacrifices for them.  His wife has precious memories of their union and enduring together in raising their children while instilling strong values within them.  His children and grandchildren remember him as their hero and are forever grateful for the fine example he set of always being eager to learn while having a strong work ethic and extending compassion to others.  His son-in-law and daughter-in-laws are ever thankful to be welcomed into such a beautiful and loving family who is the epitome of their patriarch.

He was preceded in death by his parents, AJ and Inez Johnson and a granddaughter, Kai Lois Ervin.

Albert leaves behind to celebrate the life he lived and to cherish his memory, his precious wife of 50 years, Carolyn Crain Johnson; beloved, four children, Angela Yvonne Johnson, Barbara Nyree (Tyrone) Johnson, Ryan Albert (April) Johnson, and Bryan Matthew (Myana) Johnson; six, beautiful grandchildren, Jada Louella Martin, Grant Ethan Hicks, Matthew Bryan Johnson, Jacob Cameron Johnson, Carson Edward Johnson, and Riley Albert Johnson;  four endearing sisters, Vivian (Robert) Campbell, Daisy Tidwell, Faye Weddington, Catilyn Swift, and one dear brother, Martin Johnson.  Albert has a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends who mourn his passing.  

The Johnson family would like to sincerely thank you for your prayers offered on our behalf, the love you have shown us, and your support as your acts motivated by concern and love have increased our faith, encouraged our hearts, given us strength, and reminded us also of God’s love for us.  Every expression of sympathy has sustained us.  We pray that God continue to show loyal love to each and every one of you and bless your kindness shown during this time of indescribable grief.  We extend our gratitude to Baylor Scott & White Hospice who provided beautiful care to Albert and our family during this difficult time.

Place of Service: Oakwood Cemetery , 2124 S.5th St.; Waco, TX 76706

  10. Carolyn and family,

    I am so sorry to hear about Albert. When I was working (Sears) he would come by to see me sometimes. Albert was such a fine man……even though he was from our biggest rivalry at the time, Crawford Pirates. Since being retired now, that is the one thing that I miss most, getting to see friends like Albert and others.
