Along with his mother, Ada Mae Hall, he leaves the following siblings: JoElla Tarbutton-Springfield of Massachusetts, Ralph Earl Johnson, Jr. (aka David Tarbutton), Regina Johnson of Mesquite, Jesse Tarbutton of Carrollton, Jerry Tarbutton of Austin, and step-sister Jennifer Hall.

There are a host of other relatives, and legions of friends to cherish his many wonderful memories.
