Wendell Harold Johnson, born July 9th 1957, passed away July 13, 2020 after a short fight with cancer.


Harold was a very hard worker and also knew how to enjoy life. He had a contagious smile and went out of his way to help those who needed it. He had a quick wit and loved to make people laugh with him. Even through his illness he had an amazing attitude and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and making them smile, never feeling sorry for himself. His family, including his COIT family, were an amazing support to him throughout that difficult time. He always loved to dance and one of his favorite songs in his last few months was “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!”


Harold is preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Evelyn Johnson.


He is survived by his wife Xuan Nguyen, whom he called Linda, his daughters Michelle (Scott) Spencer, Melissa Johnson, and Megan (Kyle) Langevin, his step-daughter Phuong (Coung) Nguyen, and step-son Son ()Nguyen, his brothers George (Pat) Johnson, Sam (Debbie) Johnson and Jim (Eileen) Johnson, his sisters Laura (Bob) Roybal and Edna Johnson along with his 7 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren, and 7 nieces and nephews whom he all loved so much!
