Thoughts, prayers and well wishing to the Johnson family from another neighborhood friend and the Scotts. I have fond memories (young, adolescent, older) of Johnnie as one of the somewhat younger bunch who always insisted on hanging out with us and always took our good natured ribbing in stride. You could always count on Johnnie as a stout blocker protecting you on the line in neighborhood pickup football games. I remember John as one of the Seekonk bunch who used to journey up to Western Maine where we played hard and worked hard constructing the cabin on my land and camping out. We dubbed Johnnie "camp boy" (more ribbing) because he insisted on keeping the campsite and campfire area spotless and picked up, in the midst of our carousing. He was serious about it. More recently, I was glad to chat/laugh with John (at Jane Sykes/Hogan's memorial): about the time in Maine we almost squashed his head loading huge logs onto Pat's truck. Most importantly we got caught up on the twists and turns of our life's journey and our respective journeys of faith. Rock on John.

I was so sorry to hear the news of Johns passing. My brother Jon and I had many fun times growing up with John and the entire family. I smile when I think of our many shenanigans! My thoughts are with you all at this time.

To my dear friends the Johnsons, I offer you my sincere condolences for your loss. John and I were the very best of friends and wherever we went we were together as children. John and I were more like brothers than friends. We all lived in a great neighborhood together where the children would play and I remember those summer nights when we would all get together and play hide and seek and other games until it got dark outside and our mothers would call us in for the evening. Those are memories that I will always cherish with all those great neighbors and my best friend John. It’s been many years since I have seen my best friend John as we went our separate ways as adults to raise our families, but I always have these fond memories of him to cherish and I will always think of the good times that we had together and with all of our friends. Rest in peace my friend and someday we will all be together again playing those wonderful games with one another as we did as children.

We grew up in the BEST neighborhood, and it would not have been the same without John. I spent many hours at his house growing up, and would not trade that for the world. So thankful to have such wonderful neighbors, and so sorry that he is gone. Ruth, Linda, Jodi, Eric, and the rest of John’s family - he will be missed greatly. Much love to all and prayers for God’s comfort as you go through this difficult time.

My sympathies to the Johnson’s. John was like another big brother. Lots of great memories growing up: hiking Mt Washington, canoeing the Crooked from Papoose, the Monte Carlo, fixing my tie before Easter service, his infectious outgoing personality...all will be cherished and he will be missed. God Bless John.

To Linda, Ruthie and the entire Johnson family, I send thoughts and prayers not only from me but all of my family members who either watched you grow up (Al and Elaine Baker) or grew up with you. Jan, myself, Jill and Jeremy may have lived down County Street a bit, but all of the Mowrys, Drapeaus, Richters, Hawks, Johnsons, Browns, Davenports, etc., they all made it feel like Mayberry. Johnnie, Pat Hogan, Gary Seal and others were some of my heroes growing up. God bless you all, and God bless you, Johnnie. That's how I will forever remember you by. Again, thoughts and prayers with you all! Love, the Bakers

To all John’s family. So sorry to hear of John‘s passing. I lived across the street from him long enough to get him into trouble lots of times, and vice versa. As Pat said, in that neighborhood we were all one big family. I will always remember John
