I first become acquainted with Frank a few years ago through his book "One More Hill", a true gem of World War II history -- up close and personal. What a privilege to meet him in person earlier this year. The Lord's blessings to Elena and the entire family.
I send my deepest sympathy to Elena and to Frank's family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Frank Johnson was the kind of American we have so few of now. He was a bright, brave, highly intelligent and compassionate human being. It was my distinct honor and privilege to have known him.
I love you Daddy. You have always been my Hero.
Frank you were one of my favorite customers. I came to think of you and Elena as a friend. I will miss that smile. God Bless
A sincere thank you from one of the thousands of Jacksonville Univ. graduates who never met you; but are awed by your legacy at JU. In very difficult times you changed the landscape from a small local junior college to a national university. You helped make many young people future citizens of America. Thank you again
JU 1971, BA. History
It was a great honor to paint his portrait as a young soldier. Now there are 19.
Dear Frank... You will never know just how much we loved you and how much you will be missed..,
Our love....Bett, Mary, Jim, and Jody...
We are so saddened to learn of the death of a true American hero, a man who served his country both in military service and academic endeavors as well as leadership. Dr. Johnson's presence at our table at the Spirit of 45 breakfast last year was one of the greatest and yet most humbling moments we have experienced. His engaging conversation and willingness to share his life experiences were a treasured gift to us and will never be forgotten.
Dr. J personifies all that is good and right in this world. There was a local history award established last year in his name for any JROTC who advances to the Florida History Fair. It was truly an honor to know this extraordinary man, whose loyalty to his fellow WWII soldiers and devotion to all veterans, was unparalleled. He will be missed indeed.
Frank was not only a wealth of knowledge, but an unselfish individual as well as a great neighbor. I will miss him and cherish the times we spent together. My father and Frank shared many travel and war stories. I'm sure they're both up in the gentleman's library picking up where they left off!
We will miss him! A patriot and good hearted man! We enjoyed a friendship with him for many years! Sending love and comfort to Elena and his family! Sincerely Linda Miller RDH
