Born June 5, 1943, to Luther and Concha Johnson in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.
James was a private and plainspoken man, with a tender and generous heart. A man of faith, he and his wife Beverly were members of the Frederick Boulevard Baptist Church congregation. An avid reader and student of history, Mr. Johnson had honorably served his nation in the Army, was a graduate of the Citadel, and had retired as a civil servant in the early 1990s.
He is survived by his children, Clinton, Joseph Johnson, and Laura Celeste Gventer; by three siblings; numerous grandchildren; and other extended family.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and by his wife of 38 years, Beverly Ann Johnson; tragically, he was rapidly succeeded in death by his brother, Michael, on July 7, 2015.
