Floyd “Pop” Johnson was born on April 14, 1953 and quickly became known far and wide as one of the most gregarious and fun-loving individuals in Winnsboro. His love and devotion to his only daughter, Nydia, and his grandchildren is also widely known.

Later, Pop graduated from the tractor trailer driving academy and began working for Southeastern Carriers. In addition, Pop was beloved for his mechanic skills and willingness to provide assistance to his friends and neighbors in distress, usually on a pro bono basis.
