He loved to spend time with his family, watch movies, play Rescue Bots, dress up as a police officer, eat his favorite foods, and he loved the Andy Griffith Show. Most of all, Landen loved Jesus. He wanted to be a Pastor when he grew up. Landen was a light to all and will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his parents, Pastor Luke and Amanda Johnson, his brothers Brayden and Tyler Johnson, and sister Hannah Grace Johnson of Lincolnton, NC; Papa and Nani, Pastor Terry and Regina Johnson of Morehead City, NC; Papaw and Nana, Pastor Reuben and Terry Cason of Middlesex, NC; great-grandparents, Paul and Lilian Wall, Janice Cason, and Dorothy Stevens; the following uncles and aunts; TJ Johnson of Princeton, NC; Katie (Daryl) Rackley of Greensboro, NC; Josh (Cara) Johnson of Valdosta, GA; Caroline (Dustin) Stoey of Havelock, NC; Heather (Jonathan) Huff of Erwin, TN; Daniel (Camille) Cason of Hampton, VA; his cousins, Lucian Johnson, Aubrey Johnson, Gwen Johnson, Hadessah Rackley, Adalai Rackley, Rucker Rackley, Adara Rackley, Kaiden Huff, Mckinleigh Huff, Emmalyn Huff, Lacey-Grace Cason, Cohen Cason; special friend Lois Daughtry; and many great uncles, aunts, and cousins.

A celebration of Landen’s Story will be held tonight, Monday, September 16th, at New Vision Ministries, 661 Clark Creek Rd. Lincolnton, NC. Receiving of friends will be from 4:30 PM- 6:30 PM followed by the worship service at 7:00 PM. The family will hold a private burial on Tuesday morning at 11:00 AM.

    First of all Landen was a devout christian and we will never know how many individual lives he touched. Even though Landen was sick, he was a joy to be around and was extremely funny.

    Landen’ story has touched so many lives as we followed him on Facebook. Looked forward to seeing the pictures of his smiling face every day. I am heartbroken, as so many others are. Will continue to pray for the family as you face this most difficult time in your life. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

    Landen was such an inspiration to me , as you all have been. I had the privilege of meeting Landen with his papa and nana when visiting Davis FWBChurch a few years ago. I fell in love with this precious young man. If I hadn’t been preached to by pastor Reuben Cason during church, I certainly got it after. What an amazing fella. Truly a gift from God. He will be truly missed. But thank God for his promises you will be together one day again . Thank you all for sharing your lives with us the last few years most importantly the Faith you have demonstrated to all is remarkable. We love you all and are in our prayers . May god bless you and keep you . Much love and prayers 🙏🏻❤️

    Landen has touched so many lives, even to Raleigh, NC. I will never forget Landen. I prayed for him every day, but God needed another angel. My heart breaks for the family, but I know he is no longer suffering or in pain. May the Lord Jesus Christ wrap His arms
    around this family, and give you comfort and peace. Rest In Peace, dear Landen.

    We did not know Landen personally but We have grown to love this precious boy and his family as we have been following Landen’s story. Family rest in knowing Landen has touched and blessed so many lives during his short but meaningful journey. Praying for God’s comfort, peace and love overwhelm you in the days ahead.

    Nothing I can say will ease the pain of Landens loved ones. I pray that the Lord comforts them and gives them peace….peace in the knowledge that he is no longer in pain…no more suffering…no more tears…no more struggles. Landen was so very special…his family is so blessed that Jesus chose them…out of all the people in the world, God chose them to have the blessing of Landen. He faced his challenges with love, strength, laughter, and faith…faith in his Savior, faith in knowing that God never left his side…not for one minute. His journey had its ups and downs, tears and laughter but he ended victoriously. He is alive…in the arms of Jesus. He is smiling, laughing,….his body is healed. He will be reunited with his loved ones again…forever. Thank you Lord, for your gift of Salvation, available to all who are born again. We will miss you Landen.
