"Willie was a hard working man that said what he meant and meant what he said. A sawmiller by trade, he owned and operated a sawmill that he moved around East Texas and western Louisana cutting pulp wood and railroad track ties. A World War I veteran, Willie was on the front lines in France but never ever talked about it. I remember riding with him, in his 1959 Edsel, going from DeBerry, Texas to Carthage, Texas. He went every Saturday afternoon and would drive 30 mph on a highway where the speed limit was 70 mph. I was glad no one knew me." - R. Glenn Johnson, grandson.
