George G. Johnson
George G. Johnson, 92, a resident of Springfield passed at home into his Savior’s presence on February 7, 2018. He was employed for more than 30 years as a Toll Collector and Supervising Toll Collector on the New York State Thruway Authority. George was a US Marine Corps Veteran of WWII, serving in the 4th Marine Division. He saw action in four vicious, over-the-shore island campaigns culminating in the capture of Iwo Jima. He was recalled for the Korean Conflict serving stateside and rising to the rank of Sergeant. Between the wars he married the love of his life, a Navy Nurse - Leona M. Jones. They were married for 64 years, Lee predeceased George in 2014. The Johnsons initially lived in Queens NY, moved to Williamsville NY in the late 1950s where they were active in Hedstrom Memorial Baptist Church; George served as a Trustee. Upon retirement in 1982, the Johnsons moved to Fayetteville NC to be closer to their sons who were in the military. They were active in the Fayetteville Christian Church where George served as an Elder. Following a traumatic home invasion, they moved to Springfield PA in 2010 where they became active in the Springfield Baptist Church. The Johnsons had two sons – Rev. Wylie W. Johnson, and George R. Johnson (Lawyer). They were blessed with six grandchildren – Rhoda, Rebekah, Sarah, Suzanna, Benjamin (deceased), and Caitlyn. They also have four great-grandchildren.
