Brian Lee Johnson

Brian Lee Johnson, 38, of Baytown, Texas, passed away and entered into Heaven’s gates on March 29, 2023, after battling cancer for almost a year.

Brian was born on January 29, 1985, to Craig and Becky Johnson in Baytown, Texas. Brian graduated from Liberty High School in 2003.  He worked as a pipefitter for the last several years.

In 2004, Brian met Jenny Minter in Kennard, Texas. Brian and Jenny married in 2009 and went on to have two children, Braden who is 15, and Jax, who is 2.

Brian was a devoted husband, dad and a beloved son and brother. He had a love for worship music and played guitar in church. He also sang occasionally. He liked watching football, baseball and really enjoyed watching movies of all kinds with his family and friends. He also LOVED animals, feeding every stray that came along. He loved life and spending time with his family.  He brought joy and fun to everyone around with all his silly humor and movie quotes. We have been told that he has inspired many others to pursue a better path in life with God at the lead. His heart throughout his fight with cancer was to really live the life that God had called him too.
