Oscar Woodrow Wilson Johnson was born on Feb. 2, 1942, to Buster Johnson and Bertha Dailey Johnson in Monroe County, AL. He was one of eleven children born to this loving union. He was raised in his hometown of Peterman, AL, and built a home with his wife, Lorraine Powell Johnson. Their union brought about the love and birth of four sons and two girls. 


“Creeper” as he was affectionately known, was a provider. He worked for many years at Arvin Industries in Repair. He later went to work at Georgia Pacific where he was a Heavy Machine Operator. Oscar had a strong personality that was respected by those in the community. He shared laughs with his friends and enjoyed his family. His home was always open to good people. Oscar played in a small band, with his brothers. He loved the blues and would often sit on his porch listening to music. Many people will remember his talents playing the harmonica and guitar.


In the early morning hours of Friday, February 21, 2020, Oscar quietly slipped away from those whom he loved most. He was preceded in death by his parents, his son: Keith, three sisters: Mary Lou, Georgia Kay and Pearlee; six brothers: Alfonzo, John Henry, Nathaniel, Samuel Judge, Tommy, and Michael.

He will be forever missed in the hearts of his wife: Lorraine Powell Johnson of Monroeville, AL; two daughters: Vicki Johnson and Stephanie (Sunnie) Johnson both of Monroeville, AL; his sons: Oscar D. Johnson, Donald P. Johnson, both of Monroeville, AL, and Gregory E. Johnson of Atlanta, GA; one sister: Alice Johnson of Chicago, IL; one sister-in-law: Lula Morris of Monroeville, AL; seventeen grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, three devoted friends: Ray Charles Williams, Allen Rivers and Nick Dean; other loved relatives and many friends.
