Michael C. Johnson, 60, of Lenoir City and formerly of St. Joseph, Mich., passed away at 12:05 p.m. Aug. 4, 2019.
He was a member of Silver Ridge Baptist Church. Mike enjoyed camping, swimming, hiking and his job at LHP. He loved to eat Tootsie Rolls, M&M’s, anything chocolate, Cruze’s ice cream, pizza and Mexican food.
He liked helping those who were less fortunate. Mike loved his family and was a good father to his boys. He was very passionate about transplants and the gift of life.

Mike is survived by his wife of 19 years, Deborah Koslowski Johnson; son, Chris Johnson; stepson, Chris McKinney; sister, Barb Strlekar; brother, Greg Johnson; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
