JOHNSON, Eric...

Eric Maurice Johnson passed away quietly at Victoria Hospital, London, on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, just 5 days after his 77th birthday. Beloved husband of Barbara (nee Buck) Johnson for 55 years. He was the son of the late Floyd and Evelyn Johnson, a dear brother of Andrew Johnson and his wife Tami of BC, and predeceased by his brother Allan Johnson (1998). Much loved brother-in-law of Jean Blackman. Eric is also survived by several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews.

Eric was a man of many talents. He worked for many years in the transportation industry for Canadian National Railways, London Life and Crawford Packaging. In his spare time he renovated the family home, then sold it, then the process would begin again. Always moving up the property ladder. Eric's greatest talent however was helping others. Whether it was a home repair, assistance with a project, entertaining the younger relatives, or a lift somewhere, no request was too much trouble. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
