Joseph Joey Dudley Johnson III, 25, of Beaumont, died Sunday, May 26, 2013, following a motorcycle accident. A lifelong resident of the area, he was born on March 21, 1988.

He had a passion for the game like no other, which began at the early age of four years old and continued thru his high school and college years. His efforts paid off landing a college scholarship and the title of High School 2006 District 24-3A Defensive MVP and 1st Team All District Outfielder. Joey was blessed to be a part of a National College World Series Championship with the LSU-Eunice Bengals in 2008, and he proudly wore the championship ring.
