Obituary for Richard Dale Johnson

Richard Johnson took his rest on February 27, 2024, after a hard fought 2-year battle with cancer. He was born to Cecil and Claudia (Locklear) Johnson in Milton, FL, where he was the youngest of 8 children.

He is preceded in death by his parents; and 3 siblings: Cecil L. “Buddy”, Betty, and Mildred.

He is survived by his wife Susan (Grandchamp) Johnson; siblings: Sue Schaff, Barbara (Bill) Irwin, Fred, and James Johnson; his children: Jeromy (Melody) Pierce, Angela (Rutland) Lozzio, and Anna Marie Johnson; stepsons Marlon (Jennifer) and Matthew Bonckowski; 10 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.

Richard was known for his sense of humor and generosity. He belonged to the Living Church of God and considered the congregation there to be his family too. He will be missed by all those who knew him. The family would like to thank Dr. Yazan Alsayed and the staff at Sacred Heart Cancer Center and Hospital, SunCrest Omni Home Health Care, Vitas Hospice Care, Island Doctors and all the nurses and healthcare workers who were involved in supporting him through his battle with cancer. Their love and compassion go beyond measure. The family will be hosting a celebration of life at a later time.
