He is survived by his sister, Dianne Johnson; his nephews, Paul F.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his twin brother, Franklin, and his sister, Judith Buhrow.

John loved watching old movies and all sports events. He was an artist who was dissatisfied with his own art but avidly collected the work of others. John also loved music, especially opera, and had a vast collection of classical music. He enjoyed doing research on the internet and then educating his sister Dianne during their weekly lunch dates. We will miss his encyclopedic mind, his loving heart, and his sweet, gentle spirit.
