Mr. Johnson spent over 42 years working at Ashdown’s paper mill starting out with Nekoosa, then working under Georgia Pacific and now Domtar, clocking out as the top operator of the #2 pulp mill. In his free time, he enjoyed feeling the breeze blowing through his beard on his Harley-Davidson, grilling on the back porch, listening to music, and spending time with family.
