I am so sorry to hear of Mr.Johnson's passing. I remember him with great fondness from El Rancho (class of 65). Mr. Johnson taught me how to drive a car, I will never forget him and have spoken of him often through the years. Thank you for being a positive influence in my life when I needed it. Thank you also to his family for sharing him with us. Prayers and love are being sent to all of you.

My Condolences to the Johnson Family. I played football for Coach Johnson in 1973 and 1973. I was a young man out of Neff High School in La Mirada on my way to Alaska to work construction. Coach Johnson talked to me about playing football at Cerritos and he was convincing enough that he talked me into postponing my move to Alaska. After 2 years playing under Coach Johnson Cal Poly San Luis Obispo offered me a scholarship to play football. I ended up with a degree in Environmental Engineering and at 60 years old I'm still practicing engineering. If Coach Johnson hadn't come a talked with a young offensive lineman I'm not sure where I would be today.

Thanks Ernie
You'll always be a part of me and my family.

My condolences, Mrs. Johnson, to you and all of Ernie's relatives. I had the pleasure of meeting him as a sportswriter for rival Excelsior High while covering San Gabriel Valley League football, which he and his teams dominated back in those days. Our paths crossed again a decade later while I was a member of the Cerritos College Board of Trustees and he was our head coach. He was a coaching legend in our neck of the woods and his legacy will always be with those he coached and helped along the way. God Bless. Lou Banas, Excelsior Class of '65.
