Carl Johnson's father is the character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas mentioned by his son Carl Johnson and his probably former friend Old Reece. When Carl goes to get a haircut at Reece's Hair & Facial Studio, Old Reece will sometimes tell him that his father used to get a cut just like him. However, during The Introduction, in the Red Light District in Portland, Liberty City, when Carl steals the car, he calls Joey Leone and tells him that he never knew his father.
- In the mission High Noon, Eddie Pulaski will tell Carl Johnson that his father is getting arrested. It could possibly explain that he is alive.
