Obituary for Cecil Joseph Johnson

Wiesbaden, Germany | Age 56

Exceptional man with a warm-hearted personality


Cecil Joseph Johnson went to be with the Lord at the age of 56. He was born in Mt. Pleasant, TX to Cecil Curtis Johnson and Alicia Reyes Johnson. Cecil enlisted in the Army at a very young age and served for three years. After leaving the military, he began his civilian career working in various positions for different companies. He later applied for work at Fort Sam Houston and was selected to work in the technology department. Several years later, he was selected to a technology position in Germany. Cecil had many talents which he used throughout his life. He taught himself to play the piano by just hearing the melody and later learned to play the bagpipe. He loved to play for the deceased homeless veterans being buried at Fort Sam Houston. He also enjoyed drawing, where he used his natural drawing skills to later create and design from a digital aspect with computer technology. Cecil recently submitted a drawing which was selected as the winner for his Quality Art (Logo). He was known as an exceptional man. Cecil's warm-hearted personality, level of intelligence and generous spirit will be dearly missed by his family and all that knew him. He was preceded in death by his father Cecil Curtis Johnson, his paternal grandparents: Cecil James and Tommie Etta Johnson, aunt Fern, and aunt Joyce; maternal grandparents: Jose and Maria M. Reyes, aunt Edelia De La Garza, aunt Maria Teresa Mejia; and uncle Jose Francisco Reyes.
