I was shocked to learn today of Lew's passing. I was around Lew while in a duty position in the 5030th USAR School in the early 80s I believe we interacted together frequently. Lew was such a kind and understanding person for the "Big Guy" I remember him being back then. He readily did a lot for others. He was a good person to me and I am thankful for having had the opportunity to know him.
My deepest sympathy is with the Johnston family and friends of Lew during this sad and difficult time of his home going from this life.
Eternal rest grant unto Lewis F. Johnston Jr., O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
