In addition to his parents, “Ellie” and James, he leaves behind his son, Hunter Jackson Russell-Johnston, four brothers, James R. Johnston, Jonathan P. Johnston, James H. Johnston, Arland Russell-Johnston, six sisters, Jaclyn Johnston, Jessica (Johnston) Peters, Natasha Johnston-Chance, Amanda Russell-Johnston, Aariah Ellen Johnston, and Ramy Mae Johnston, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.  He is also survived by the mother of his son, Taylor Rounds.
