F.R. Johnson was an ordained minister of the United Pentecostal Church International for over 50 years and pastored many churches in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Georgia. He was a former member of the Texico District Board, editor of the Texico Trumpet, and served in multiple positions in ministry in the UPC organization. He grew up a sharecropper’s son in West Texas. His secular careers included sacking groceries at a Piggly Wiggly where he first hit his head on a car trunk while loading groceries and was smitten by a girl named Olene. He was a member of an El Paso pipefitter’s union and was a licensed refrigeration mechanic. He wrote many articles as “Cactus Pete” in the Texico Trumpet and authored the book Johnny Reb and the Preacher. His education included completion of the eighth grade and he often recollected many stories of his school years being spent under the teacher’s desk for misbehavior. He attended Bible school out of Tupelo, Mississippi, and refrigeration mechanic school in El Paso, Texas. Pastor F.R. Johnson loved telling jokes, especially mother-in-law jokes, and was respected and loved by many of his former parishioners. He influenced many people to turn their lives around and serve Jesus. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Allison UPC, P.O Box 120, Allison, Texas 79003, where he pastored for over twenty years. A special thank you to Elara Caring Hospice, Sabrina Glenn, RN, Carrie Blaire, CNA Ginger Lynch, RN, and Larry Landtroop, Chaplain, for their care, support, and understanding during this difficult time.
