Obituary for Bruce Albert Johnson

Bruce A. Johnson, age 80 of Lapeer, passed away in the comforts of his home and with his family by his side on January 2, 2016. He was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on March 12, 1935, the only child to Eileen and Edwin Johnson. Bruce was a graduate of Muskegon High School, Class of 1952. He joined the United States Army immediately after and loyally served his country in the 293 Rd Quarter Masters Grave Registration Company during the Korean War. After the Army, he moved to Lapeer and worked for Michigan Bell / ATT for 33 years. After retirement, Bruce worked for McLaren in Lapeer as a Nurses Aid for 5 years and served as a volunteer for several years following. Bruce was also a Ham Radio operator for many years. He was known in that community as N8EXN.

Bruce held several office positions within the local Lapeer VFW and was also a member of the Lapeer American Legion, The Forty & Eight and the Lapidary Club of Lapeer.

He enjoyed playing fast pitch softball on the MI Bell team but most of all it was his hobby of making beautiful stained glass that he was most known for. Bruce made hundreds of intricate pieces of stained glass, most of which he gave to family and friends as gifts.

Bruce is survived by his wife of 58 years, Alice Johnson; daughters Constance (Jim) Lamb & Susan (Tom) Jensen; daughter-in-law Linda Johnson. Also several loving grandchildren and great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his son Clifford Johnson in 2015.

“This is N8EXN signing off.”

A private memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial donations to McLaren Cancer Institute (1295 Barry Dr. Lapeer, MI 48446) are greatly appreciated. Arrangements for cremation entrusted to Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel.
