Memorial for Max L. Johnson

View/Sign Guestbook

Service information has not yet been posted.

A man of slight stature by worldly standards, Max was a strong, courageous, mighty soldier in the Army of the Lord. He fought the good fight and passed victoriously through all of the devil’s obstacles. Racked with pain throughout most of his life, his suffering deepened his witness to others. Now he is safe, whole, and pain free in the loving arms of his Sovereign King who had sustained him for eighty one years. He was born on June 30, 1939 and was crowned on January 24, 2021. Max married Dorothy May Gillming in 1962. They were blessed with three sons: Daryl W of Atlanta, GA; Rodney E (Idella Blair) of St. Charles, MO; Duane E. ( Amy Starkey) of Salida, Co. Also nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. His preaching ministry began in Morril, NE while still a senior in high school and throughout his studies at Platte Valley Bible College in Scottsbluff, NE. He served one year as youth minister at CO Springs, before being called to serve the Sunset Park Church of Christ in Pueblo, Co. He accepted a call to the Riverton Christian Church in Riverton, IL. While there, he also attended the Lincoln Christian Seminary. Max, Dorothy and boys were called to Hugoton, KS, for a 20 year ministry. He then served the Carterville, IL, Christian Church until his retirement in 2013. Due to health reasons, the Johnsons settled in Bentonville, AR. His earthly remains will be taken back to his childhood home near Torrington, WYO. On Saturday, April 24, 2021 marking the 59th anniversary of his marriage to Dorothy, he will become part of his childhood playground called “Rattlesnake Hill”. Family and friends are welcome to this service. A catered meal will be planned. Details later. In lieu of an emediate life celebration service a Face Book page is available for family and friends to share with Max’s family and each other any pictures, comments, stories or memories of Max in their lives. Everyone is invited to participate. The eulogy will be given by a beloved friend and fellow “soldier”, Mike Williams of Sun City West, AZ.
