Larry Joe Johnson, born on January 29, 1939, in Enid Oklahoma, passed away on April 21, 2024, in North Carolina. He was 85 years old.

Larry dedicated his career to the art of being a skilled Cartographer. His passion extended beyond his professional life, as he found joy in landscaping and gardening, showcasing his green thumb by making anything grow.

An individual who seemingly knew everything there was to know about anything, Larry was often the person to call for help or to just sit and talk about nothing.

Larry is preceded in death by his father, Leonard D. Johnson; mother, Ruth E. Johnson; brothers Lanny and Bryan Johnson; sisters Debra Grissom and Mary Jane Harris; and his wife, Shirley Johnson.

He is survived by his daughter, Jeanette K. Lowicz (Chuck); son, Jeffrey B. Johnson (Karen); grandchildren Bella, Sebastian, Chase, and Dylan; and sister, Sandi Johnson.

Known for his warm and welcoming nature, Larry never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was the neighbor who would assist everyone with snow blowing their driveways after a snowstorm.

Services to honor Larry’s life will include a visitation on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service in Washington, NC. A Funeral will be held at 11:00 am on Monday, April 29, 2024, at Darnestown Presbyterian Church in Gaithersburg, MD, followed by burial at Parklawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Rockville, MD.

May Larry Joe Johnson be remembered for his kindness, knowledge, and willingness to assist others, leaving a lasting impact on all who had the privilege to know him. Flowers are welcome or donations may be made to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by Clicking Here
