Carl Leroy Johnson, third of six children born to Harvey “Clay” Johnson, Jr. and Pearl Grace (Magee) Johnson, came into this world July 10, 1940 at the family home in Woodward County. He passed away on August 10, 2014 at the age of 74 years and one month.
Carl attended school at Richmond, where he enjoyed playing baseball, and upon Richmond’s closure, Carl continued his schooling and baseball career at Mutual, where he graduated with the class of 1958. On September 13, 1958 he was joined in marriage to Glenda Mae Poulson in the country home of her parents. Carl and Glenda made their first home in Enid, Oklahoma, where their first child, Susan Kay, was born in 1959. They then moved to the Mutual area, where their first son, Randy Lynn, was born in 1961. They later made their home one mile west of the old Richmond School and there, two more children were added to the family: Rebecca Diane in 1969 and Eric Lee in 1972.
Carl enjoyed raising cattle and farming, spending time with family and his grandchildren, collecting John Deere memorabilia, going on afternoon drives around his property, and visiting with neighbors. Neighbors could depend on him for a bale of hay or a spirited conversation.
Carl was preceded in death by wife Glenda in 2009 after 50 years of marriage; parents, Clay and Pearl; brothers, Carol Johnson and Dale Johnson; and grandson, Shelby. Carl is survived by his children: Susan and Phil England of Seiling, Randy and Sherry Johnson of Mutual, Rebecca and Nathan Shuyler of Tulsa, Eric and Shelly Johnson of Woodward; grandchildren Amanda and Jerrod Geiger, Lance and Tereisa England, Jamie and Daniel McIntyre, Randy Jr. and Amanda Johnson, Andrea Blackwood, Samantha and Matt Sander, Lunden England, Josh Goff, Chandler Johnson, and Olivia Shuyler; 13 great-grandchildren; brother, Allen Johnson; sisters, Rosalee Vessels and Roberta Gregory, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors and friends.
