Obituary of Roy H Johnson
Roy H Johnson, 87, of Gahanna, passed away on May 5, 2022. He was born in Calhoun, Kentucky on June 25, 1934 to John and Melissa (Kittinger) Johnson. After graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach, California in 1953, Roy served in the United States Army from 1955 to 1959. It was during this time, while stationed in Germany, that he met his wife of 64 years. They raised 3 children, and subsequently 3 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Roy knew no strangers and had a knack for telling enthralling stories to any who would listen. He was a proud business owner, founding Select Equipment Company in Hilliard, Ohio in 1988 after managing Ohio Oil Equipment Company for 20+ years. In addition to being an avid reader, Roy had many hobbies. As a creative individual, most of his retirement was spent painting and wood carving. Roy will be greatly missed by his loving wife, Helga (Mittman) Johnson; his children, Karen Grimes, Steve (Jeff) Johnson, and Kim Siebert; his grandchildren, Justin (Brittany) Grimes, Jessica Grimes, Brenden Siebert and their families. Private arrangements entrusted to Schoedinger Northeast. In lieu of flowers, donations in Roy’s memory may be made to The American Heart Association at
