Eric Johnson, 46, passed away Wednesday, August 30, 2023. He was born December 6, 1976, in Plano, TX to Robert Lee and Dianne (Redmon) Johnson Sr.
He married Mindi Rae Storey on November 30, 2002, in Frisco, TX. He was a proud graduate of Texas A&M University, class of ’99. He owned Johnson Turf Inc. and loved the family business he built with his wife, Mindi, mother-in-law, Sheila Storey, father-in-law, Will Parmer, and so many great employees.
Eric was a member at Midway Church and a proud Legacy Christian Eagle dad! He and Mindi could be found near whatever ballgame, stock show, or their activities the girls and their friends were participating in. Eric was a club softball coach for the last 15 years. He loved helping young people achieve their dreams and spent his time serving others while coaching. Eric also served as president and held other offices on the Pilot Point Booster Club, the Pilot Point Friends and Family Organization and the PTO. When he wasn’t coaching in his spare time, he spent hours in the barn helping kids with their show animals and hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors with his family.
