JOHNSON, Murney Wilbur

Murney Wilbur Johnson
April 11, 1926 – February 25, 2020
After a lifetime of love and courage, on Feb. 25th, 2020, Murney Wilbur Johnson, of Outlet Road, joined his loving wife, June (nee Mounce) who pre-deceased him in September of 2015, and with whom he was married happily for sixty-five years. Murney passed away peacefully, at the age of 93, at H.J. MacFarland Home. He was the proud son of the late Kenneth and Rose Johnson, and a brother to the late Arthur, Ivan, Elva, Floyd, Carman, Harland, Robert, and Ronnie. Murney is survived by his brother Rodger (Gerti) and his sister Colleen (Rick). Murney was the loving and respected father of Paul Johnson (Debbie), and Lisa Vincent. He was a special father-in-law to Andrew Vincent, and to the late Christopher Dougherty. Murney was a loving grandfather to Kerrie Johnson, and Ken Johnson (Monique). He was a great-grandfather to Isaac and Olivia LeRossignol, and to Molly and Jack Johnson. Being an adoring and doting “Papa” to Matthew and David Vincent was one of his greatest joys. The love he gave them, and the lessons in life that he taught them, will stay within their hearts forever. Murney will sadly be missed by his many nieces and nephews, and their families. Murney was a proud and heroic veteran of World War II. He was a respected friend to many in Prince Edward County. Murney was escpecially thankful to the staff at H.J. MacFarland Home, and MLP Residence, for the excellent care he received while residing there. Also, many thanks to Dr. Koval, Dr. Haig, the staff at their office, and the staff at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital for many years of outstanding care and compassion. At Murney’s request, a cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held on or near June 23rd, to celebrate the lives and eternal love of Murney and June Johnson.  Murney loved to sing, we hope to those who knew him, these words hold special meaning:
When I was just a little boy I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome
Will I be rich
Here’s what she said to me
Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be  
Rest in peace dad. Xoxo
