After all these years, I just recently got to know you and how you liked your coffee. I will miss your jokes and your quick smile when you bring Carol in for her haircut. Sincere condolences to the family. Carrie Taylor

Hello, my name is Matthew Jobst and my grandfather is Mike Burkett and he saw the obituary in the paper. Sorry for your loss. My grandpa and Elden Cotterman were good friends. He only knew George Johnson by the name Dick. He knew Dicks grandparents Marie and Bill Woodard. Please email me if I have the right person, as my grandfather would like to make contact. He is 92.

I only had the pleasure of meeting him once while he was attending Tim’s graduation. Lots of laughs that day when he realized that Tim was smart. Lol. Very fond memories. Prayers to the Johnson family.

Dear Cousins and Aunt Carol,

I don't know how to express into a single memory who I knew Uncle Dick to be. As a child he was the uncle I knew best and was most scared of, especially if I tried on cousin Angie's dance costumes. As I grew older he became somewhat of a family patriarch that watched over my grandma and offered advice to my dad in a sage like wisdom. As an adult I was introduced to his wit and charm, and I am thankful in his last year I had a few conversations that introduced me to the kind worried Christian man that was known by so many.

Dear uncle, enjoy your heavenly prize and seek comfort in your mother's arms again. Your work in our world of suffering has ended. Thank you, Uncle Dick, for always showing me kindness and grace, and thank you for being there for my father through his own trials. These last years with you have been ones he has cherished and your guidance as his older brother has been a great gift.

To my dear family he leaves behind, I send my love, my thoughts, and my prayers during this moment of mourning. For one day there will be no more tears and we will all be with our Lord and savior.

While I never met George Johnson, I know is son Tim very well and I can tell through Tim that he was a wonderful person and raised his family right. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Johnson family. You can be assured that God need a great organizer and service usher up in heaven so he call George home for those big Sunday services.

Take care,
