September 26, 1924 – May 5, 2020
Jack Johnson passed away on his wife’s birthday, Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at Colonel Belcher Long Term Care facility in Calgary, Alberta at the age of 95 years. He was born in Mimico, Ontario to Nora Kate (nee Andrews) and James Green.
He is survived by his children Bonita Misener (nee Johnson) and his son Michael. He will be missed by his grandkids David, Linda (Manny Troitino), Jennifer, Reed, and Leah (Darrel Clark). Unfortunately his great grandchildren Catherine & Alexander Troitino never knew him.
Jack was predeceased by his wife Frances Cedella nee Gates, his mother Nora Green and all his siblings in Ontario.
He served in British Royal Navy and was part of WWII’s Operation PLUTO, and in the British Merchant Navy. For most of his life he was a carpenter and bridge builder. Jack loved to fish, camp and walk in the woods. He was an avid vegetable gardener and built a big greenhouse in his backyard. He loved to tell interesting stories.
The family is especially grateful to the staff and nurses at Colonel Belcher, and his private caregivers Sana Khan and Angelitia Pablo. They added meaning to his last years.
A private family graveside service will be held with a celebration of life to take place at a later date.

Dad's dogs were Silver & Blackie. Silver followed me home from school in 1974. She was always a happy dog and ate everything put in her bowl. Silver was my mom's favorite dog.
Blackie's mother was a German Shepherd & father was a black Labrador Retriever. Blackie was my Dad's favourite. She loved stealing food from the bbq. When she got old Dad would carry her in & out of the car.
Both dogs travel with my parents and especially liked the BC salmon fishing years. Both dogs died in the mid 1990's. This photo is from 1983.
btw Dad cracked all the natural stones for the fireplace surround.
