As a young Navy Fireman under CAPT Johnson's command in 1984, he taught me one thing that has made me successful throughout my 30 years of Naval Service... "Can Do!" The Seabees often use it, but I always believed he coined it! He taught me the meaning of Commitment!

Fair winds and following seas skipper, the Captain had a stellar Naval career. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

Captain Johnson was the kind of man who through his own dedication inspired many young, green "sailors" to reach inside of themselves and perform tirelessly tasks that we didn't realize were within us. A stern but fair man and one hell of a C.O. His Knowledge of Naval Weapons Systems . Gunnery especially, earned the first Battle E for the USS DOWNES (FF1070) in 1978. Two more followed in '79 & '80. The Old Man loved his gun shoots. We couldn't keep the magazines full enough. Heaven has the gates protected now. You're remembered well by many Cap. GMG2 Rick Schroerlucke USS DOWNES 1977-1980
