Eric LaShon Johnson
Lester Lackey & Sons Funeral Home

Mr. Eric LaShon Johnson was born on March 11, 1973, in Atlanta to the late Albert Johnson and surviving, Martha Johnson. He was a member of Bethel Grove Baptist Church and was a graduate of Lithonia High School.

Eric possessed a very kind, loving and giving spirit. He was always outgoing, positive and kept everyone around him laughing. Eric was a mentor, big brother and father figure to many seeking an ear to listen, arms for a hug and gave loving but stern advice. He was a person that loved life and the life of the property. 

God called him home Feb. 11, 2019. He leaves to cherish his memories; a devoted aunt, Essie Perry; uncles, Johnny Johnson and Curtis Johnson; devoted daughter, Diamonicia Smith; fiancée, Felicia Robinson; stepchildren, Summer Wilson, Jeremy Wilson, Jimmy Bellamey and Justin Turner; mother, Martha Johnson; brother, Omar Johnson; sister, Kimberly Birdson and a devoted cousin, Tommie P. Johnson; along with a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and friends.

A funeral service was held at 1 p.m. Saturday Feb. 16 at Bethel Grover Baptist Church, 10728 Flat Shoals Road, Covington, with Bishop Samuel A. Holmes officiating. Interment followed in the church cemetery. 

The family of the late Mr. Eric LaShon Johnson would like to express their sincerest appreciation to each of you for your love and kindness conveyed to them during their hours of bereavement. May God’s richest blessings shower upon your life.
