    To the family of Ted Johnson: I was saddened to learn of Ted's passing. I worked with Ted at WFDF Radio in Flint for many years and have many fond memories. I have a picture hanging in my living room that Ted painted of my oldest daughters graduation picture from High School. Ted was truly a great friend. My deepest sympathy to you all. Joyce Thatcher

    To the Family of Ted Johnson:

    Ted, along with you and his legion of friends are in the thoughts of many from around the country, especially in the Greater Flint, Michigan area.

    His many friends and colleagues at Comcast Cable in Flint, Michigan, where he hosted quite possible his final shows of his long and distinguished career, appreciated the opportunities to get to know him and experience his wisdom from his work in and contributions to the broadcasting industry HE helped grow so much.

    His legacy for being one of the pioneers in many ways to the Detroit and Flint markets has long been secured and grows with the sharing of each story we remember Ted sharing with us, and the countless experiences that many people remember-listening or watching while Ted worked his craft in these areas.

    God Bless you Ted and the entire Johnson Family.
