Ron Johnson, 64
OBIT - Johnson.jpg

Mr. Ron Johnson, 64, of Morrison was born March 23, 1956, in Garden Grove, Calif. Ron passed away Jan. 26 at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro due to complications from COVID-19.

He was a proud member of Charles Creek The Baptist Church. Ron retired from Major League Baseball after a wonderful 40-year career, but always said he never worked a day in his life. When he wasn’t on the field, Ron cherished his time at home with his family, riding his horse, watching college football and cutting up with his friends. Loved by all for his big smile, positive attitude, and encouraging words, he will be missed by all. Survivors include his wife of 27 years Daphane Johnson, children Savannah Johnson, Christopher Johnson, Christian Gonzalez, Cheyanne Johnson, and Bridget Johnson, and grandchildren Grayson Asher Johnson, Calliana Marie Johnson, and Walker T. Gonzalez. 

Per his wishes, Mr. Johnson will be cremated and a memorial service honoring his life will be conducted in the McMinnville Funeral Home Chapel at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30. Visitation with the Johnson family will also be Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the funeral home.

McMinnville Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
