On September 5, 2004, Leuchann “Fatboy” Johnson Jr., was born to Danielle Shelton and Leuchann Johnson Sr, at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center, Williamsburg, Virginia.
Leuchann was a student at Lafayette High School where he played football; wearing jersey number 40. In his younger years, he wore jersey number 52. He played football for the Jaguars, and Hornets, and also played baseball for the Venom. He played many sports but took football very seriously. He experienced a minor setback injuring his knee but worked very hard to be able to play again. Leuchann was very strong-willed and made sure he was able to run up and down the field, and no one could tell if he was hurting.
Leuchann enjoyed hanging out with friends and cousins. He loved going to the Rec Center to play basketball and to work out. He also loved listening to music, playing on his phone, and always walking around with AirPods in his ears. He was the coolest guy and a perfect role model.
Leuchann is preceded in death by his grandfather, Lawerence “Papa Lonnie” Barbour, and his baby cousin, Jakeem “King” Brown. Fond memories will forever remain with his parents, Danielle Shelton and Leuchann Johnson Sr.; four siblings, Philasia Johnson, Cheyenne Washington, Demarco Johnson, and Cali Johnson; grandparents, Mary Barbour, Norman Gillison (Connie), Germaine Johnson (Joseph); special and dear mom, Kwanza; special dad, Marcus Parrott; two favorite cousins, Justin Brown Jr. and Joseph Mcmiller Jr; a host of aunts and uncles; god sister, Aaliyah Cooke; godmothers, Indi Dickens and Lashawn Singletary; and a host of other relatives and friends.
