Jon Johnson

October 12, 1963 — April 22, 2024


We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Jon Eric Johnson Jr. from Anderson, IN at age 60 on April 22, 2024. Jon passed away surrounded by his loved ones after a very short battle with cancer. He is gone but we will never forget his fun loving nature and caring personality. .

Jon was loved by so many and was always the life of the party, ready to crack a joke or “break it down.” He would give anyone the shirt off his back and always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved his family and friends more than he could ever show or say. Jon enjoyed driving his corvette to car shows, sitting in his garage, listening to music, bonfires, and boating.

Jon is survived by the “Love of His Life” of 40 plus years Deanna Johnson
