Andrew Marion Johnson

Andrew "Andy" Marion Johnson, 97, a longtime resident of Anchorage, AK passed away on October 3, 2017 at his home. Andy was born on March 15, 1920, in Lexington, KY. He is the youngest son of Marshall and Winifred Johnson growing up on a tobacco and dairy farm. After graduating high school in Lexington, Andy attended two years of college studying business administration and accounting.

In November 1942, Andy enlisted in the U.S. Marines. As a World War II veteran, he served in the South Pacific and was honorably discharged in 1945. With the encouragement of a friend, Andy made the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. in October 2014. Thanks to the co-founders Ron and Lynda Travis of The Last Frontier Honor Flight as well as the many volunteers and contributors, Andy's trip was a most memorable one.

From 1953-1965 he was owner/operator of A.M. Johnson Construction Co. in Erlanger, KY.

Andy came to Alaska in 1965 where he remained until his passing. From 1965-1969 he worked for Carpenters Local Union 1281. In the early 70s, he owned A.J. Construction Company building several homes in the South Anchorage area. Between1975-1978 he was employed with Pulis Builders as a Construction Superintendent overseeing jobs on Ft. Richardson Army Base, in Glennallen and Seward, AK. His last employment was with Sandland Construction Company as a Construction Superintendent supervising projects throughout AK. After retirement, Andy and his wife, June, were snowbirds. They traveled the Lower 48 visiting family and friends on their way to and from a home in Arizona. In addition, they enjoyed their trips to Seward and Homer where they spent much of their time fishing on the "Carol J".

Andy was husband to June Johnson for 33 years until her passing in 2013. He is survived by his step-daughters Teresa M. Alyea of Anchorage, AK and Melinda Norwood Lathrop of Bethel, AK. He is also survived by his grandson Alec Marshall Johnson Sr. and his great-grandchild Alec Marshall Johnson Jr. of Tampa, Florida; his nephew Bob (Vicki) Johnson and niece Winnie (Bill) Wilder of Kentucky; his cousin Rebecca "Reba" Hoover of Kentucky and Florida; his sister-in-law Marlene (Robert) Scott and brother-in-law Darryl (Carol) Galt of North Dakota; along with other in-laws and friends.

Andy is preceded in death by his parents Marshall William and Winifred  Scott Johnson; his brother and wife Charles and Henrietta Johnson; Andy's first wife Mary Elizabeth Johnson and their son Richard Scott Johnson; his second wife Patricia M. Johnson and their son Andrew M. Johnson, Jr.; his third wife Mary Reid Johnson.

On behalf of her step-dad, Teresa would like to thank Josh Frommer and his caregivers from Homewell Senior Care as well as the wonderful staff at Providence Hospice. Shortly before Andy's passing he met with Chaplain Steve from Hospice for a pinning ceremony, thanking him for his service in WWII.

A Memorial Service with military honors is scheduled for Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 2:00PM in the Carrington Cemetery. Andy’s cremated remains will be buried next to his wife, Carol June (Galt) Johnson.

A celebration of life and time of remembrance will immediately follow at the residence of Robert and Marlene Scott.
