John 16:28 So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
Christian Daniel Johnson beloved son, father, brother and friend to many passed peacefully into the eternal arms of our heavenly father on Saturday August 28th 2021 in Plano TX.
Christian was born on March 11, 1977 to Lloyd and Carmen Johnson in Bellflower, California. He had a long and colorful career in construction and home remodeling. He became an exceptional painter and took great pride in his work. He is survived by his parents, Lloyd and Carmen Johnson; his beautiful children, Alexis Madison Johnson, Christian Johnson Jr, and Gabriel Johnson; Sister, Wendy Bradley; Brother-in-law, Shane Bradley and many other extended family members and friends who loved him very much.
His life will forever be cherished for his beautiful smile, boisterous laugh, the profound love he had for his family and a constant desire to be with them. His was an old soul, known by all for his sensitivity and a huge tender heart. He was known to best express his love and joy through song, and at his happiest could be found serenading family and friends with old Mexican ballads, or from songs by great R&B Soul artists. Among his all-time favorites were Al Green, Ben E king, and Otis Redding. Let us always remember him for the legacy he leaves behind, which is to love completely, forgive quickly and to share joy without constraint.

The Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me."
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.
