Heaven gained an angel like no other. Hollis Elbert Johnson went to be with the Lord just a day before the Lord's birthday. He left us Dec. 24, 2020.

Hollis lived his life with a big heart, helping others whenever he could. He never met a stranger he couldn't call a friend. His life touched many people and he was loved by many people. He answered to many names: Husband, Dad, Pa, Pappa, Papps, Daddy Johnson, Pappaw Penguin.

He was born May 2, 1941, to the late parents of Elbert and Lola Johnson. Hollis was a member of Rock Springs Baptist Church.

Hollis leaves behind a wife of 49 years, Patsy Johnson; son, Rodney Johnson; daughter, Holly Johnson Hink; four grandbabies that were his world: Jacks, Parker, Makeelie Grace Hink. Also Lincoln, aka Baby Penguin Rhodes.

The Johnson would like to say a special thank you to Elysian Miller, she was Hollis' angel here on earth.

The remembrance of his life will be celebrated at Rock Springs Baptist Church, 1026 Rock Springs Road, Jessieville, Ark., at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021, with Brother Randy Noles and Charlie Dunnavant officiating.

Arrangements are by Hot Springs Funeral Home.
