Lafayette "Snapper" Johnson Jr., 76, of Waldorf, Md., passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, Clinton, Md.

He was born on November 3, 1943, in Detroit, Michigan, to Edward Lafayette Johnson and Anna Bell Thomas. He was one of five (5) children.

Snapper was a loving man. He met and married his wife, Consuela D. Johnson and they celebrated over ten (10) years of marriage before her passing in 2010.

He proudly joined the United States Army serving his country honorably. He was a proud American and had great pride in his country. Upon his release he worked in shipping and receiving in a meat packing plant. He was a hard worker.

Snapper enjoyed his ministry work and running his website. He felt it was his honor and privilege to share the word of the Lord. When Snapper wasn't working, he could be found in his favorite chair reading a western. Whether you knew him as Layfette, Snapper, Dad, or Grandfather you knew he loved deeply and was a man of great strength. He was greatly loved and will be missed by many family and friends.

Snapper is survived by his children, Michael A. Johnson of Lexington Park, Md., Lafayette Johnson III of Alexandria, LA, Tracy D. Spriggs of Fort Mead, Md. and Tonisha Johnson; sixteen (16) grandchildren; twenty-two (22) great-grandchildren and one sister, Diane Cooper of Detroit, MI. He is preceded in death by his parents, his sisters Shirley and Dale, his brother Lawrence, and wife, Consuela D. Johnson and Alice Johnson.

At this time all services will be private. Snapper's interment at Arlington National Cemetery will be held at a later time.
