Arthur “Art” Johnson, age 79, of Branson, Missouri, passed away April 28, 2018. He was born in Camden, Tennessee, on December 6, 1938, to Lester Charlie and Louise (Medlin) Johnson, who have preceded him in death. In his early years, Art went by LC Johnson. He was joined in marriage to his dear wife Carolyn on April 11, 1959. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.

Art proudly served in the U.S. Navy. He later worked with General Motors for 31 years on the line and as an inspector. Well-known for his musical talent, Art learned to play guitar by ear, singing and playing for a radio station in Murray, Kentucky. Throughout his lifetime, he played in bands. He worked in several different Skid Row ministries in Los Angeles, California. After moving to Branson in 1992, he worked with the Barbara Fairchild ministries. His love for the Lord was unshakeable. Art has shared his love of music with his family, leaving a legacy for his children and grandchildren. He is deeply missed by his devoted family and friends as he enters into the presence of his Lord and Savior.
