    Sorry to hear of Hollis’s passing. He was great man who loved life and people. God reset his weary soul and may he comfort the family as only he can. May precious memories comfort you as well. “GOD BLESS “

  2. I meet Hollis, Jr thru his brother Mike. He repaired our motorcycles, go-carts, took us duck hunting and was always there for us when we needed help in any manner. He will be sorely missed. Farewell Hollis, Jr.

  3. Thank you “Paw” Mr. Hollis Johnson for accepting me into your family as your own. Our many talks, you feeding me every day, your daily life lessons (fatherly talks). But most important, you were my biggest cheerleader on the court & in this life. Thank you Sir, I could never repay you for your love, kindness and generosity. You will be missed, thank you for making me into the man I am today. I would be lost without your guidance. I love you & I’m going to miss you. Too Mr. Johnson family, my heart is with you all during this time. Lifting you up in prayer in Jesus Name!

  4. Hollis Jr. was a kind and caring brother. He never departed from seeing me without asking if there was anything I needed. He always said I should call him if anything came up no matter where I might be and needed help. I always knew he meant that and would come to my aid if needed. I will always remember him as a kind person who would help anyone. He would also tell me to go, travel and enjoy everything as long as I can. I will miss knowing he is no longer with us. RIP Hollis Jr.

  5. My condolences to the Johnson family. I know Mike and David will miss Hollis very much. He was the nicest and kindest man that I knew.

  6. Hollis Jr. was one of the kindness men I have ever known. He was always good to me and would give you the shirt off of his back. I loved hearing about his service in the military. I really do not know if he was ever given the respect he deserved for his sacrifice. He will be missed but leaves a legacy of memories we can hold on to. RIP my wonderful friend.

  7. Condolences To the Johnson family – I have known Hollis Jr. and all the family since the 50,s he was a real gentleman and caring person. I always enjoyed being around him ,he would come by regular at our business to see if there was anyway he could be of help. HOLLIS Jr. will be dearly miss.
