Celebration of life

Roderick Johnson, 64, passed on August 31, 2022. He was born to Matthew Johnson and Janie Johnson in Baltimore, Maryland on December 01, 1957.

Roderick grew up in Edmondson Village and remained there most of his adult life. Most of his friends called him “Rod” for short. Roderick graduated from Forest Park High School, where he played football, baseball, lacrosse and wrestling. That love for sports carried into his adult life. He was a jack of all trades, which lead him to obtain any jobs. He made numerous friends wherever he went and will sincerely be missed by everyone. He loved music, playing checkers, eating sandwiches (especially peanut butter and jelly), kung foo movies and just being  outside. During times he didn't have a car, he still got around and wasn't afraid of walking where he needed to go. Rod was a hustler, mover and shaker, a go getter. Rod had a sweet tooth and you could always catch him with a grape soda and a bag of Red Hot potato chips. One thing about Rod, he was always going to ask you for your loose change to get him a cigarette or to drop him off at the corner store. He loved sports and to trash talk the Ravens. He was a devoted son and father. He loved his daughters and especially loved his grandchildren, they could always count on "POP POP. Rod had a  big personality with a loud voice that trickled down to his loud ass kids, which made family time a loud time. When Rod’s around you can guarantee that you’ll laugh until your stomach hurt.

Together Rod and Dawn raised 4 beautiful girls, now women.

He leaves to mourn his mother Janie Johnson, his sister Andrea (Fred Henrahan),1 uncle James Johnson, Godbrother Brian Jefferson and 4 daughters Nicole, Devonna, Jasmine (James Walker), and Shade' 1 nephew  Dillyn, 8 grandchildren Pharaoh, Kamirah, Damaira, Myoho, Kadyn, Jody, Inanna, and lastly Jaxen. With a host of family and friends.
