Dr. LaRoy "Roy" Johnson

Published 9-10-13

ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Dr. LaRoy “Roy” Johnson will be 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home Chapel, with Rev. Wesley Byrd, Rev. Max Brown and Rev. James Pointer officiating. Interment will follow in Karoma Cemetery, Goltry. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 1 p.m. until service time on Thursday.

Roy was born Nov. 20, 1924, in Goltry, Okla., the son of William and Eva Unruh Johnson and passed away Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013.

He was a graduate of Goltry High School in 1943.

He was a veteran of the United States Navy, serving during WWII.

Roy was united in marriage to Dorothy Schmidt on Sept. 23, 1947, in Enid. God gave them four children, but they all died in infancy.

Roy felt his call from God and he and Dorothy moved to Fort Worth, Texas, to attend Bible College. While in college he pastored his first church in Newark, Texas.

After graduation from Bible College they moved to Plainview, Texas, and started Calvary Baptist Church. After 17 years there, Roy accepted a position with Arlington Baptist College as a teacher and recruiter. The last church he pastored was Messiah Baptist Church in Wichita, Kan., where he served 15 years.

Roy enjoyed keeping a pretty yard and prior to his heart surgery, he piloted small aircraft. During his pastoring he was affectionately known as “Mr. Missions.”

Survivors include his wife, Dorothy, and a sister, Sylvia Ray of Ohio.

Memorial contributions may be made to Bethel Baptist Church Missionary Fund.
