Johnson Jr., Christopher  
Christopher A. Johnson, Jr. Christopher A. Johnson, Jr., of Fort Walton Beach, passed away at home on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, after a lengthy illness with his family at his side. He was born in Pensacola, FL, on November 8, 1933, the only son of Chris A. and Annie P. Johnson. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Suzanne Johnson Cobb, brother-in-law Jimmie O. Cobb, and brother-in-law Ronald P. McLellan. Chris attended local schools, graduating from Pensacola High School in 1951. He graduated from Florida State University in 1955 with a B. S. in Accounting. While at Florida State, he was a member of Sigma Chi Social Fraternity, and is a Life Loyal Sig. After graduation, he was employed by the U.S. Air Force Auditor General and had special training at the Wharton School of Business. He is a Navy veteran and served aboard destroyers in the Pacific Fleet. Upon his return to Pensacola, he became a staff accountant with the CPA firm of Saltmarsh, Cleaveland, and Gund. On May 28, 1960, he married Susan Jane Scheuer of Warrington, FL. He passed the CPA Examination in February, 1962, and was admitted as a partner in the firm. In 1964, the firm asked him to open an office in Fort Walton Beach, because of the many clients there. So, in October, 1964, Chris, Susan, and their 3-year old son David started their new life in Fort Walton Beach, where he became one of the first certified public accountants in the city. From the start, he became active in the community. He joined the Rotary Club of Fort Walton Beach, later served as President, and is a Paul Harris Fellow. He is past President of the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce, Catholic Social Services, and the Florida State University Alumni Association. He also served as a member of the Police Pension Board for the City of Fort Walton Beach. He was a member of the Krewe of Bowlegs for many years, and served as Capt. Billy Bowlegs XXIX. A life-long Catholic, he was a member of Saint Mary Catholic Church, where he served on numerous committees including over 40 years on the Finance Committee. For over 12 years, he served as an Extraordinary Minister of the Holy Eucharist. Chris Johnson was a man of outstanding character, possessing integrity of the highest degree. He never met a stranger. He was just as comfortable with a general or a judge as he was with a group of boy scouts. Whenever he saw a baby, his face would light up. He treated every person as if they were the most important person in the world, because, in his eyes, at that moment, they were. Chris lived his life according to the Rotary Four-Way Test: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Chris was a devoted husband, beloved father, a proud grandfather, and a faithful friend. He loved spectator sports, playing golf on Saturdays, and rooting for his Florida State Seminoles. Chris is survived by his loving wife, Susan, his son David and wife Sherri of Marianna, FL, daughter Ginny Scheidt and husband Stephen of Niceville, daughter Suzy Gavin and husband Clif of Pensacola, sister Ruth Chadbourne and husband Edward of Pensacola, sister Martha McLellan of Pensacola, sister-in-law Virginia Amberson of Fleming Island, FL, sister-in-law Lynda Richmond of Birmingham, AL, and four grandchildren Chris and Will Johnson, Jack Scheidt, and Susanna Gavin, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. A Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated at Saint Mary Catholic Church in Fort Walton Beach at 10:30 am on Tuesday, April 28 with Father John Licari celebrating. Visitation will be in the church from 9:30 to 10:15 am followed by the recitation of the Rosary. Interment will take place at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Pensacola immediately after the Mass of Resurrection. Pallbearers will be grandsons Chris and Will Johnson, nephews Richard Cobb, Edward Chadbourne III, and Ronald P. McLellan, and life-long friend Robert Benz. Flowers are acceptable, but memorials may be made in Chris' name to Saint Mary School, Rotary Club of Fort Walton Beach, and Life, Inc. The family wishes to sincerely thank the wonderful caregivers of Home Instead and Covenant Hospice for their compassion, care, and concern.
