Allen Michael Ross Johnson

Our loving son, Allen Michael “Ross” Johnson IV, left this earth for his heavenly home on October 22, 2020. Ross was born April 9, 1999 in Reidsville, NC to Allen and Dawn Johnson. He was a resident of Greensboro but has resided in Reidsville the majority of his life. Ross leaves behind his mother, Dawn Tucker Johnson (Mark); father Allen Johnson III (Susan); sister, Allie Johnson; fiancée, Mikayla Stokes; daughter, Merci; son Makonnen; grandparents, James and Debbie Tucker; Allen Johnson Jr. (Tina) and a host of friends and family. He was preceded in death by his sister, Taylor Johnson and his nephew, Bair Johnson. Ross graduated from Tarheel Challenge Academy in 2016. He was a talented baseball player and spent many hours playing ball as a kid. He excelled in all sports; playing soccer, basketball, football and his favorite, baseball. Ross was known for his huge smile, sweet spirit and jovial personality. He was a class clown at heart and you couldn’t be around him without laughing. He always brought a smile to others’ faces in a way no one else could. His bright outlook on life and tender heart embodied who Ross really was. Most of all, he was a loving father to both of his children. They were his whole world and he enjoyed every second of being a Daddy. He was also a very loving son and never walked away without saying “I love you”. He loved his mama deeply and was such a protector to his sisters. His kind heart showed through daily as he was always willing to help others in need. Ross will be deeply missed by all who loved him but we know he is reunited with his sister; Taylor and he’s holding his precious nephew Bair again. We ask that you honor Ross by making someone laugh, smile at others, and as Ross would always say: “Focus on the positive.” Funeral services will be held Tuesday October 27, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Wilkerson Funeral Home with Dawn Johnson officiating the service. Family and friends will gather starting at 2:00 and service will start at 3:00. A committal will immediately follow the service at Evergreen Memory Gardens. Wilkerson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Allen, Dawn, Allie, and ALL of the family and friends of Ross, We are so saddened to hear of his passing. We remember that sweet, rambunctious little boy at Living Hope who was always laughing and playing ball even off the field. Our continued prayers are with you all as you navigate this tragic loss.
