John AKA Jack, Dad, Papa will be missed by all who knew him.
John F. Johnson, age 79, of Lakewood, California, went to be with the Lord on March 23, 2023, while doing something he loved, riding his bike.
John was born on February 14, 1944, in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Clifford and Elizabeth Johnson. John attended St. Cecilia grade school, Creighton Prep High School, and attained a degree in Psychology from Creighton University. He attended Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia, then served in the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam as an Infantry Lieutenant in Da Nang area.
After Vietnam John moved out to Laguna Beach, California where he met Deborah–they were married for 11 years and had two children together.
John worked as U.S. Letter Carrier for 22 years. He also loved being a Sunday school teacher for 7 years at Calvary Chapel in Downey, California. John was known as a very caring and gentle heart man, always putting others first. He had such a calm loving presence, great energy, always upbeat and positive, and the life of the party!
John loved spending time with his family and especially his grandkids. He gave endless hours to caring for the grandkids at a young age to their school years with school pickups and sporting events. He was a huge blessing to his family. He enjoyed doing his yard work, riding his bike, reading the newspaper, going to the beach, watching and playing sports, family gatherings, playing cards, reading the Bible, and spreading God’s word.
