Paul was born on February 23, 1932 to CC and Annie (Morris) Johnson in Swenson, TX. He lived in Stamford, TX until 1952 when he enlisted in the United States Army and served in Korea.
Paul met Mary Woolsey, the love of his life, in 1957 and they married on June 6, 1958. Residing in Burkburnett, TX, they had their oldest two children. Then, in 1972, God knocked on his heart, and answering the call, he led his family to the country of Turkey for missionary work. While there, Paul and Mary had their third child and in 1978 returned to the United States to welcome their fourth and last child.
Paul and his family became residents of Norman, OK, where he lived the remainder of his days, greatly enjoying his children and grandchildren. There is nothing Paul loved more than God, his family, his pets, and desserts.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Louis, and half-brother Gene. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Mary, and their children Marianna of Belize, Stephen and Dawn of Norman, Jessica and Andrew Sprouse of Noble, April and Jimmy Sanders of Pittsburgh, PA. Paul is also survived by his grandchildren Taylor, Jordan, Samuel, Luke, Sydni, Jude, and Hadley.
He is loved by all who knew him and will be very greatly missed.
