Brad Johnson has sadly passed away at the age of 62.

The news was confirmed by Johnson's representative, Linda McAlister, who informed The Hollywood Reporter that that actor had died on February 18 in Fort Worth, Texas, following Covid complications.

Johnson's family announced in a statement: "Although he was taken too early, he lived life to the fullest and taught his children to do the same."

The statement added: "Brad greatly enjoyed improving and enhancing land, in a way that maintained and respected its natural beauty. He always felt most at home outdoors, and his passion for the land made that evident. As much as he loved cowboying, hunting and land, Brad loved nothing more than his family."
