Loss of a Great Leader

Remembering Sam Johnson

(A repost of a message from our County Chairman Mark Reid)

Today, we morn the loss of a national treasure. Former Congressman Sam Johnson died Wednesday at the age of 89.

Congressman Johnson answered his nation’s call to defend Liberty and endured nearly seven years of unimaginable treatment as a POW in Vietnam. After returning, he served the citizens of Congressional District 3 in North Texas for over 25 years.

People who knew and worked with the Congressman had nothing but praise for this great man. He was known as a man who deeply loved his wife and children. His was a man of God. He was a patriot and a statesman who spent his life defending this great nation and the Liberty that we all enjoy.

As we remember this great man, let us celebrate a life well lived and a life of selfless devotion to God, family, and country. Congressman Johnson will be missed, but not forgotten.

The Collin County GOP will be providing  information about services as it becomes available.
