Dr. Tarnue C. Johnson

The Johnson family in collaboration with friends and colleagues of Dr. Tarnue C. Johnson, formerly of Firestone, the USSR, England, Chicago and recently of Iowa, regret to announce his sudden and untimely death in Iowa, USA. This sad event occurred between August 16-20, 2018, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Dr. Johnson was reportedly no call no show for work for several days. When the Cedar Rapids police did a wellness checked on him after being alerted by his work place, (Kirkwood Community College) in Cedar Rapids, the police found Dr. Johnson unresponsive and had reportedly been dead for about four to five days per the Cedar Rapids coroner’s report.

Mourning his death are his uncle, Kolubah Kpabee Johnson; sister Wenwu Johnson; cousin Orlando Bigboy Yanquoi and a host of relatives and friends in Liberia, Europe and the US. In lieu of flowers the family/friends of Dr. Johnson would appreciate financial contribution to assist with his final rites.
