Colonial Funeral Home Of Leesburg - Leesburg Obituary

Mark C. Johnson of Leesburg, VA passed away on February 25, 2020, at the age of 58. Mark grew up in York, PA. He is survived by his parents, Mary and J.D. Johnson of York, PA, six siblings, and three children: Spencer Johnson, Kelsey Kish, and Conner Johnson.


Mark was a beloved and dedicated family man, friend, and colleague who always put the happiness and well-being of others before him. He had a tremendous sense of humor, an exceptional moral compass, and great humility. These qualities endeared him to all who knew him. If you were lucky enough to have known him, you have at least one story about how he made you laugh, told you who or what you looked like, helped you out, or simplified a problem for you. Done!


In addition to his dedication to family, Mark loved to hunt and loved to observe wild life whether it was a white tail deer grazing on his property in Leesburg or hawks perched on trees in the landscape as he was driving. He shared his love of hunting and wildlife with many friends over the years, and he will be remembered for this passion.


Mark graduated from Indiana University Pennsylvania, and in 1985 moved to the Washington DC area to pursue a career in sales, which started with selling fax machines for Panafax. In 1989, he joined Oracle and had a 30-year career building and ultimately leading The Public Sector Sales Organization. The success of Oracle and the people he worked with and led was his life’s mission.


Mark leaves behind a great legacy of unforgettable love, generosity, loyalty, and humor. He will be greatly missed.


The family will celebrate his life on Saturday, March 7, 2020, at Colonial Funeral Home in Leesburg, VA: 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. visitation and 2:00 p.m. ceremony.

Not sure what to say?

I'm so sad to learn of Mark's passing only recently. Although I haven't seen Mark in several years, working as part of his team was a wonderful part of my life. His constancy and positive outlook were grounding to all of us, even those on the team (like me) who lived 3000 miles away. I remember one time when he was in San Diego for a customer visit, and he had several back to back calls. He said - heck, I'm not going to see anything in San Diego except my hotel room and these customers -...

Mark (K-BO) was my best friend ever. I wondered why he didn't reply to my texts earlier this month. I just sent another to him and again no reply. Then something hit me to search for him. I'm JB, We were roommates for 4 years in college and never got back together after that. We were brothers like no two could ever be. I can't believe I will never see him again or share a back slap or his stupid laugh with him. Damn, what happened to him. He can't be gone. We had so much to catch up on in...

Mark - Thank YOU for being my friend! You were a Rock for so many of your close friends. You will be missed beyond measure. DONE...

Mark was a great mentor and friend. Over the past 7 years, I worked closely with Mark and spent many hours with him both personally and professionally. Mark always talked about his family, how dedicated to them he was, and how he would do anything for them. He was the same way with the people he worked with and cared about. And he was that way even with the people who he barely knew, like the bartender or waiter who was nice to him and he would leave an incredibly outsized tip. I'm sure...

My deepest sympathy to Marks family. Mark was truly one the best in the business. I will always be grateful for all that I learned from him. I will remember him fondly for his wit, leadership, skill and unspoken nudge to keep moving. May God bless Mark with eternal peace!

Dad,

Thank you for being the absolute best father a daughter could ask for. You always made time for me, protected me, supported me, and told me you loved me every chance you got.

When I got pregnant I knew youd be an amazing grandpa, and you were exactly that, amazing. Louie loved you so much, dad. Ill miss seeing you walk around the house with him almost every Sunday pointing out every fan and light, never putting him down unless you wanted to sit on the ground and...

Mark will be greatly missed. Our heartfelt condolences to his family, and it was heartwarming to see so many people whose lives he touched at the remembrance service this weekend. When we joined Oracle as a couple of Aussies from an acquired company, Mark was immediately welcoming to us. We will never forget Marks sense of fun, or his nicknames for people around the office, but Mark also worked hard to drive core values of integrity and trust throughout his business. We will always remember...

My deepest condolences to the Johnson family for their lost.

I worked with Mark at Oracle from 1992-2006. He was young sales rep when I first met him and he deservedly rose to become the leader of the entire Oracle US and Canada Public Sector organizations. Mark was a talented, caring and dedicated sales professional who balanced his hard work with loving care of his children. He will be greatly missed by those he worked with and the customers he served. My deepest sympathy to his children and extended family.
