Clarence O’Banner Johnson Jr., affectionately known as “Bo”, was born on May 4, 1958 in Oxford, OH to the late Clarence Johnson Sr. and Daisy Johnson-Hayes. He was the third child of seven children. At the age of 26, Clarence became a very committed father himself. He took great pride in being a very committed father and friend. Clarence always embraced everyone he came in contact with and was always a pleasure to be around.
On November 28, 2020 at 9:40 p.m., our Heavenly Father whispered into Clarence’s ear, “time well served my child.” Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. – James 1:12
