Kenneth V. Johnson
Fort Myers - Beloved husband and father, Kenneth Vaughn Johnson, born August 11, 1934 in Baltimore Md., passed peacefully on March 11, 2018 with his children at his side at Hope Hospice in Fort Myers, FL.
He left behind his loving wife of 59 years, Sandy; children, Daryl (Marili), Sharyl Kistel (Timothy); grandchildren, Trevor and Madison Johnson. He also leaves his half-brother Danny (Kathleen), and family.
Ken was very proud of bringing almost all of the Capt. Geo. C. Diggs clan to the Lee Co. area and has numerous relatives working in the school system, as well as in the local area businesses.
Ken was brought to Ft. Myers from Miami in 1962 to manage the local Metropolitan Life office. He was active in Rotary South for 30 years or more. He enjoyed tennis, loved boating, skin diving and lobstering, fishing and traveling. In addition, Ken was a Mason, volunteered for the Red Cross, and was a quiet, yet generous contributor to many charities dear to his heart.
Ken never thought he'd live past 50 years, so every year was a bonus, and a blessing. He made the best of every day with his quick wit and sharp sense of humor. To all who knew him, raise a glass of your favorite beverage, or better yet, your best single malt scotch, because he is enjoying heaven just as much as he enjoyed us, and life here.
