There are condolences waiting approval on JOHNSON's Tribute wall

Johnson Sylvester Bright, affectionately known as "Jaybee", was born on April 24, 1954 in Island Creek, Maryland to Charlotte and the late John W. Bright, Sr. He gently departed this earthly realm, on the morning of November 26, 2010.
Jaybee was educated in the Calvert County Public School System. He joined Brooks United Methodist Church as a youth. During Rev. Kay Albury's tenure, he rededicated his life to Christ. He often attended services at the Church of God in Port Republic, MD. Jaybee was also an active member of the Sons of the Legion, Post 220.
Jaybee did various jobs as a skilled carpentry laborer, and carpet installer. He loved to spend time with his family and took great pride in being the coordinator for Christmas Dinner. Jaybee often did not have a driver's license, but he managed to get to his destinations if he had to "Ride, Walk, or Fly"...
Jaybee lived his life as though each day were his last. He enjoyed having a good time and made sure everyone around him was also enjoying themselves. Jaybee was an honest man that told you the truth, good or bad. He also had a good heart and could often be seen directing parking for various functions at the church.
He was preceded in death by his father, John W. Bright, Sr., grandson Kelly Bright, Jr., and sister, Alice Barnes.
Jaybee leaves to mourn his memory, his mother, Charlotte Bright; a son, Kelly Bright, Sr.; a daughter, Kim Bright-Parks (Joseph); a stepdaughter, Tobi Collins; four granddaughters, Erica Boatman, Erishala Boatman, Danielle Shannon and LaTwon Privott; a great-grandson, Kortez Butler; two sisters, Sarah Brown (Clemente) and Cynthia Coates (Edward); Seven brothers, Melvin, James (Katrina), Franklin, Dean (Susan), Don, Howard, and Mark (Renee); brother-in-law, Donald Lee Barnes; Eight Aunts, Roberta Andrews, Iris Harris, Mabel, Mazie, Ellen, Josephine, Sylvia Jean and Marie Johnson; Five Uncles, Enoch and Wilson Johnson, John Brooks, Sidney Andrews, and Ford Harris, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousin, and friends. He also leaves very devoted friends, Charles Elliott, Lester Sewell, Floyd Height, Jr., Pauline Chase, Mary Hawkins, and all of his friends on "the hill".
