October 31, 1946 – May 6, 2015
Thomas Roger Johnson , age 68, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully at home, while surrounded by his family on Wednesday, May 6, 2015.
Born in Washington, D.C. on October 31, 1946, Thomas was a son of the late Joseph C. Johnson and Irene (Mosher) Johnson. He proudly served his country as a member of the US Air Force. A lifelong entrepreneur, Thomas made his career in the sales industry.
He was an avid reader and liked literature of all genres, especially history. In his leisure time, Thomas enjoyed working on cars, snow skiing and time spent with his fellow “Breakfast Club” members. He had a wicked sense of humor and was known as quite the prankster. Tom will be remembered as a loving man who was happiest in the company of his beloved family and will be dearly missed by all.
He is survived by his wife of 15 years, Amy (Nagorski) Johnson; daughters, Valerie Dechant (James) and Eileen Soukup (Orion), all of Warwick, MD, Katy Griffith (Matt) of Lincoln University, PA, and sons Chris Molaski (Sarah) of Newark, Mike Nagorski (Peggy) of Newark and Andrew Saunders (Man) of Newark; brother, Ken Benditt (Laurie) of Spring Lake, NJ; sister, Noreen Attman of Glenside, PA; and 4 grandchildren.
