Richard Johnson Biography

(March 2007)
I was born in the Bronx and raised in the East New York hood of Brooklyn. Got 2 brothers and 5 sisters, not all the same mother and father, but all brothers and sisters nonetheless. We weren't the poorest people in the neighborhood but it was rough. Then again, although it was rough, we were happy and we were healthy. Moms did the best she could raising us and thank God that He helped. I moved out of my mother house fourth although I was the second oldest, due to the role I had to fill as the man of the house. Funny, to this day, my mom and my aunts all still call me if the kids are acting up. Anyway amid all of the strange experiences in life I got married, joined the military and now I live in Okinawa, Japan, with my wife and 2 kids. And Thats Jus-Me.
