Mr. Oliver B. Johnson

“When Peace like a river attendeth my way; When sorrow like sea billows roll. Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say it is well with my soul”.

It is with deep sorrow that The Johnson and Curran families announce the homegoing of their Son, Husband, Father, Grand Father, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend; Mr. Oliver B Johnson commonly known as “OJ”. This sad event occurred on Sunday, March 18, 2018, at 7:00 P.M. at the Lourdes Medical Center in Willingboro, New Jersey, 08046, USA.

Oliver is survived by his loving and caring wife of many years; Mrs. Demoe Lady Johnson, children-Duma Nimely, Olivia Pinky Johnson, Olive Garmai Johnson, Vanjah Johnson and Faith Togba. Grand Children- Hope, Naomi, Brianna, Mahkai, Kenzo, Amara, and Uzoma. Three brothers: James, Tarweh Johnson, sisters- Jartu Johnson, Esther Curran,  a host of other brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, cousins and other relatives and friends in Liberia and the USA.

Honey, Daddy, “Brother OJ,” Uncle Oliver as we commonly called you, we loved you dearly. Those we love remain a part of our lives forever and we will always cherish the lasting memories that will never fade away because you are gone but you are not forgotten. Your THOUGHTS and memories will always live on in our hearts. The most comforting thought is that although we love you very much, God loves you most. The heartache of death, no one can heal; but Love leaves a memory no one can steal. We will miss you! Go in peace and we will meet again someday. You fought a great fight, never giving up. May your soul find rest as you enter the master’s grip.
