Neal Roger JOHNSON Obituary
JOHNSON, Neal Roger

Neal Roger Johnson of Arcadia, California died on June 3, 2014, at Arcadia Methodist Hospital. He was 79 years old. He was born on November 11, 1934, in Los Angeles, California. On May 12, 1956, he married Norma Jean Duffett, and together they had three children, Neal, Terri and Roger. Later, a third son Jerry was added to the family with the untimely passing of Jerry's parents.
Neal worked for over 38 years at the Arcadia Police Department and eventually became their chief of police. He retired in 1996, from the Arcadia Police Department, and later became the chief of Pomona Unified School District Police Department.
Neal was very involved in the community, particularly in the Boy Scouts of America's Law Enforcement Exploring programs both on a local and national level, receiving their Silver Beaver Award, Silver Antelope Award, and their highest national recognition, the Silver Buffalo Award.
Neal enjoyed spending time with his family and traveling cross-country with Norma in their motor home. He especially enjoyed fishing, not just with his children and grandchildren, but also with his fishing buddies on their annual fishing trip.
Neal was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, who is very much loved and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife Norma Jean; his daughter Terri; and his sons Neal, Roger and Jerry. He is also survived by his grandchildren Adrianne, Jody, Kasey, Matthew, Jonathan, Samantha, Meagan, and Jamie; and his great grandchildren Joe, Elizabeth, Landon, Colin, Sophia, and Payson.
