Obituary for Johnnie James Johnson

Johnnie James Johnson, 63, of Oxford, PA passed away peacefully on Monday, August 27, 2018 at Christiana Care Hospital, Newark, DE following a very lengthy illness.

He was the husband of Barbara Weatherman Hudson with whom he shared 14 years of marriage.

Born on October 2, 1954 in Coopers, WV to the late Johnie and Hazel Henderson Johnson formerly of Colora, MD.

He attended Rising Sun High School and had several college degrees.

Johnnie served honorable in the US Air Force from 1972–1974.

He was a member of the American Legion Mason-Dixon Post #194, Rising Sun, MD. Johnnie was an NRA instructor, teaching gun safety. He took an active role in the American Legion Air Rifle Team where he secured funding and took care of all rifles and repairs.

Johnnie’s hobbies included fishing, guns, reading, computers, cooking and working on cars. He loved mowing the lawn, hunting and making jewelry for family and friends.

His favorite saying while stopped for a red light was, “It don’t get any greener.” Johnnie was a funny person who made you smile with one of his jokes. He will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his sister-in-law, Linda Lightner.

A memorial service in his honor will be held at 1 pm, Saturday September 15, 2018 at the United Methodist Church, 18 Addison St., Oxford, where friends and family may visit from 12 – 1 pm. A luncheon will be serviced in the church hall following the service.
