"As Principal of Rafer Johson School in Bakersfield, CA I was honored to know and spend time with Rafer. His enthusiasm and support for our special needs school was unparalleled. He gladly attended many events over the years and cheered on our children at local Special Olympics gatherings.
His character, dedication and care was evident to all who came in contact with him.
I am proud to have known Rafer and called him my friend.
