Obituary for Gary Dean Johnson

Gary Dean Johnson, a resident of Milford, MI, died on October 13, 2019. He was 80 years old.

Gary was born on October 29, 1938 to parents Kenneth and Virginia Johnson. He grew up in Redford, MI and graduated from Thurston High School in 1957.

In 1958, Gary met his beloved wife of 59 years, Loretta Ann Schramm. The two were married in 1960 at St. Francis Cabrini Catholic Church in Allen Park and moved from Detroit to Milford in 1974 with their three young children, Kirk, Ken and Denise.

As a family they enjoyed spending time at their cabin on Houghton Lake and traveling around Michigan, taking in all of best sites, especially this States beautiful lighthouses, with their favorite being the Presque Isle lighthouse.

Gary had an outrageous sense of humor and a spot on Fred Sanford impersonation! He was a true handyman, tackling all household projects with his self taught knowledge and his own two hands. He was always generous with what he had and loved passing out fresh $5 bills to children (even ones he just met!) Most of all, Gary will be remembered for his big heart, the love for his family and his devotion to his lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

He is survived by his wife, of 59 years, Loretta; children, Kirk Johnson, Ken (Kelly) Johnson, Denise (Mike) McCurdy; grandchildren, Angela, Bethany and Allison Johnson; sister, Shirley (Gary) Marcelk as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.
