Johnny Lee Kinder

May 23, 1955 — February 6, 2022

Robinson, Texas

He was a good man.  Johnny went to be with his Lord on Sunday, February 6, 2022, finally free of the ill health that plagued his earthly body.

Johnny was born in Waco, Texas, to parents Clellon J. and Lorene Rogas Kinder and after graduation from University High School lived the rest of his life in Waco.  He achieved a degree in aircraft maintenance from Texas State Technical Institute and as an aircraft mechanic Johnny traveled the world then worked many years for L3 in Waco, letting the airplanes come to him for a change.  Later he drove patients from all over the area to Injury One, spreading lighthearted kindness to others who were dealing with the burden of physical pain.

He had a passion for photography and he especially appreciated the way light played on the landscape in different seasons during all times of the day.  With his lovely wife Lea who preceded him in death, Johnny enjoyed jaunting through the countryside to snap fields of wildflowers, windmills and old barns with sunlight shining through broken planks.  His photos of God’s gifts, including professional quality photos of loved ones, are prized by his friends and family.

Johnny loved his family, his many friends, his dogs and he could usually bring out a laugh in just about anyone.  He was preceded in death by his wife Lea (Robbins) Kinder, father Clellon J. Kinder, and brother Larry Eugene Kinder.  He leaves behind his beloved wife Barbara who cared for him so well, his daughter Laryn Carlisle and grandson Zachary Carlisle, son John Kinder, stepson Mickey White (Stacy), grandchildren Joey White, Clara White and Evie White, stepdaughter Regina White, stepson Brian Sellers, Kristi Kocina and grandson Warren Sellers, his mother Lorene Kinder, sister Sue Walston, brothers Glen Kinder and Kevin Kinder, a big handful of nieces and nephews, a great-niece, a great-nephew and Gracie Louise a great German Shepherd, to all of whom his presence gave great joy and comfort.  Johnny was all about comfort.

From the many telephone calls and messages of sympathy that have come in, a resounding theme has emerged.  He was a good man.  And he was.

A memorial service and celebration of Johnny’s life will be held on Friday, February 11, 2022, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at the First Baptist Church of Robinson.
