In memory of
Glenn Roy Johnson
Glenn Roy Johnson, affectionately known to most as "Truck", transitioned from this life on Friday, July 3, 2020 at the age of 67 in New Orleans, LA. He was born on August 19, 1952 in New Orleans, LA. He was the fourth of six children born to the late Alton Johnson and Edna B. Johnson-Brown. He graduated from Walter L. Cohen high school in 1970. He married Gretchen Hankton Johnson on March 13, 1980. He retired from AT&T (formerly known as South Central Bell and Bell South) in 2001 after 37 years working as a Service Technician. During his tenure with the telecommunications company, he was also an active member of Communications Workers of America, AFL-CIO, CLC. Glenn treasured cooking amazing food, road trips, entertaining family and friends, and attending parties and social events. He was well known at many of the local bars and clubs around New Orleans as the life of any party he attended. While our hearts are saddened by his passing, we rejoice in the knowledge that Truck lived his life to the fullest. Glenn was preceded in death by his parents; Alton and Edna and his brothers; Clayton, Earl, and Rodney. He is survived by his wife Gretchen, his children Dainill and Damon (wife, Shanta), his sisters Paula and Sheila, his grandchildren; Damon Jr, Dezmond, Daniel, Davon, Mia, Kaiden and Raelyn.
