Obituary

Marion “Doc” Wesley Johnson, 88, of Tavares, FL passed away at Bedrock Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Eustis, FL on Saturday, December 17, 2022.

“Doc” was born in Blanchester, Ohio on September 15, 1934 to Coile and Margie (Eubanks) Johnson. He is survived by his wife, Marcia Ann (Ferris) Johnson whom he married 66 years ago on December 28, 1956.

He was preceded in death by a brother, Daniel L. “Smiley” Johnson, and two sisters, Priscilla Johnson and Gwen Thompson. He is survived by his brother, Robert (Bob) Johnson of Port William, Ohio.

Doc is also survived by his three children, twins, Joanie (Gary Johnson) Johnson, and Tony (Sandy) Johnson and Natalie (Craig) Leslie, along with grandchildren: Abigail (Brian) Harshbarger, Stephen (Leanne) Johnson, Andrew (Meagan) Johnson, Michael (Sarah) Johnson, Megan (Jeremiah) Pierre, Nathaniel Leslie, surrogate grandson Joseph (Julia) Meyer and 13 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

A graduate of Port William High School, Doc first worked at Frigidaire for nearly 14 years and included in that time was three years enlisted in the U.S. Army. After his time at Frigidaire, he became a successful partner in Drake Trailer Sales. Salesmanship was in his blood. From there he and Marcia had a partnership in an Englander’s Wood Stove Shop for several years while also being on the road in sales for freight, the tool and die industry, mobile home accessories and then direct sales for a Mobile Home factory. But the sales position he treasured most was sharing his love for his Savior, Jesus Christ.

Doc also had a passion for driving MANY MILES for the local car dealerships that took him on many adventures.

    Dear Marcia, Tony and Sandy, Joanie and Gary, Natalie and Craig and families -

    I have been thinking of you all and remembering you in my prayers since learning of Doc’s passing. Needless to say many fond memories flood my heart and mind when I think of times spent with your family during my Wilmington years and when I think of Doc the first word that comes to mind after Christian is GENTLEMAN. If ever there was a man who epitomized the word “gentleman” it was Doc. He always had a smile on his face, a kind word to be spoken and wanted to be sure everyone else was taken care of. He loved Marcia and his children (later sons- in-law, daughter-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren) as set forth in the scriptures and they in turn have taught it to their respective families - what a heritage. I know because I witnessed it in their home and in the lives of their children in Sunday School, youth group, etc. I honestly can say my life was blessed for having known Doc and Marcia and family. I saw the word “gentleman” demonstrated in Doc’s service as a teacher, Deacon and Elder in the church and saw him make wise decisions on many occasions on behalf of the church family, etc. He was wise in his counsel. He was a man of integrity, values, wisdom, love, etc. He was a hard worker - whatever the task might be. He also baked the best pumpkin pie around!

    Again, my love to the Johnson family and extended family that I got to know through the years. I am so glad the Lord allowed our paths to cross.
