George “Felix” Johnson passed into eternity on September 21, 2023. He was born to Col. George Howard Johnson and Shirley Mae on July 26, 1952 at Travis Air Force Base in California. Growing up as the son of a military officer, George cultivated a deep respect for those that served our nation and an interest in military aviation. Upon graduation from Bellevue High in 1971, he settled in the Omaha area and shortly thereafter, started his life-long career at UPS. Even in his retirement, George continued to transport packages working for a medical delivery service around town. When health and time allowed, George enjoyed playing a round of golf or a game of softball. He also took pleasure in woodworking, listening to Blues, watching Husker football and going out for breakfast. George was a humble, encouraging, and affectionate husband, father, and brother who will be missed by many.
