Andre was a devoted and loving son, father grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He loved spending quality time with his family. Spending time with his mom was something he truly enjoyed. He would frequently take trips to her home to watch NBA games. he loved sitting with his Mother while debating about LeBron James and several other players. This was their time to banter about who was the best basketball player in the league. Andre loved his children and wanted the best for them. He frequently called his son, DaMonte Johnson. They conversed about life and the day to day blessings. When DaMonte moved to Las Vegas, Andre took every opportunity to visit. Between the casino, the buffet and time with his son,he couldn't ask for more. Andre loved his daughter Indigo Johnson and always said how beautiful and proud he was of her. He always smiled when he mentioned her and was extremely excited when she gave him his first and only grandchild Kameron Kind.
