I am sorry to learn of "Mr. Johnson's" passing. I knew him when I was a kid in the 70s, growing up in the Princeton Methodist Church and as a Boy Scout in Troop 88. He was my scoutmaster. I was not always one of the easier kids in Scouts, giving him numerous opportunities over about 5 years to demonstrate what a patient and caring man he was, never angry or shaming. I will always remember him as someone who treated me with respect and as a whole person, not just a snot-nosed, troublesome kid (although I was that, too). I listened to him because he listened to me and it made me want to do better. Many years after I had moved away from Princeton, my mother would tell me that he still asked how I was doing... perhaps marveling that I had largely straightened myself out! It made me happy that he remembered me. John Johnson was a good man and I am glad that he was one of my guides early in life. I am a better person for it. Greg Burdwood

I first met John and Barbara when they visited Australia in 1987 while I was a graduate student. He encouraged me to apply to PPPL and kept a keen interest in my progress over the years. I felt his warmth and genuine interest in my development whenever I met him. You can read all the management books in the world and fail miserably, or you can genuinely care about the people around you and succeed. I will forever be grateful to John for the example he set for us to follow. Thank you, Jonh.

John was our neighbor as well as our dear friend. We spent many happy hours with him and Barbara celebrating ordinary and extraordinary occasions at our home, at the Clubhouse, at their home and their club. Our annual New Year’s Eve dinner out with friends was even more joyous with Barbara and John. Although John was a very accomplished professional, he was very humble about it all. One of his favorite pastimes was telling us stories about his years with the Boy Scouts. You could tell he relished every minute of it and we loved hearing about it. Our sincere condolences go out to Barbara, their children, and grandchildren. May the many fond memories you have of John bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Lynn and Sam Anson
