He worked at the Newport News Shipyard for many years.

He retired from Long Island Development Medical Center in Melville, N.Y. after 25 years of service. Alex was a friendly and courteous neighbor and will surely be missed in his community.

He leaves to cherish his memory his devoted wife of 37 years, Rebecca Ann Johnson; three sons, Victor Johnson, Terrell Johnson and Michael Johnson; two daughters, Brenda Broadnax and Valerina Jones; six grandchildren, five great-great grandchildren; one brother, Moses Richard Johnson; nieces; nephews; five great nieces; seven great nephews; great-great nephews; and a host of cousins and friends.

We will truly miss you.
