K.H. Malone Isaiah John Edward Johnson
Abilene, TX

Born on June 13, 1932 in Shiro, Texas, he was the baby boy of 16 children. He grew up with numerous nieces and nephew who affectionately called him K- Baby. He moved to Abilene Texas at the age of 19 with his brother Chester Johnson. His older brother counseled and guided him and they were close until his death. J.E. worked with Chester at the Abilene Country Club until he began working at the Caterpillar Tractor Company and was a valued worker and they called him "Pockets". During the early 80's he began working as a caretaker for Dr. Schultz and Dr. Ramsey. He was employed for 30 plus years by both Doctors. His hobbies were family and fishing and listening to the blues. He would often take trips to the casino. West Texas Rabbit loved to hit the highway and had a heavy foot. Children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends all have called on him when in a jam. If he thought he could help in any way he would come, no questions asked. J.E. was an avid sports lover and the Dallas Cowboys ,L.A. Lakers, and the Texas Rangers were his teams. Rabbit was also a carpenter and could build anything he put his mind to, lazy was not in his vocabulary. He worked hard, played hard and schooled many in a dice game.
Rabbit raised three children with his companion Elizabeth Lyons: Janie, Debra, and Monte. He also had two biological daughters Wilma ( Dee Dee) Hilton with Flora Dene Glaze, and Rachelle Renae Vinson with Sue Vinson. From these five children he had 13 grandchildren,33 great grandchildren and 6 great great- grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by both his parents, all of his siblings and a grandson. He was greatly affected by the deaths of 2 of his nephews James Johnson and Donald Ray Johnson, a niece Hazell Scott, and beloved friend Elijah Bo Thomas.
J.E. loved family and his favorite time of year was the third weekend of August.. FAMILY REUNION!
