Paul G. Johnson, 41, passed away suddenly on October 17, 2016, in Baltimore, Maryland.
Born in Annapolis, MD on May 5, 1975, Paul grew up in Pasadena on the water. He earned his BS in Accounting at Ferrum College in Virginia, and his chosen profession was as a police officer with the Prince George’s County Police Department.
After retiring from the force, Paul embraced life fully. Good at everything, he pursued every passion he had. He studied radiography and worked as a radiographer in North Carolina; traveled the world, never passing up an adventure; made hundreds, likely thousands, of friends; and found happiness and fulfillment working as a “wrencher” at the Cycle Mill in Ellicott City, MD.
He was a wayfarer, a vagabond heart, a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend, a safety net, a soul mate and the best partner around. He loved food, cooking, exploring, learning new things, beer, his jeep, trivia, literature, photography, history, the underdog, a good cup of coffee and the road less traveled. He was generous, kind, loving and never met a stranger. He was a protector, a planner, a provider; he was what we aspire to be. He was everything.
While Paul didn’t yet have his own children, he was a father at heart to many—and the best uncle in the world.
He is survived by his mother, Barbara Johnson; his sister and brother-in-law, Ann and Mark; his two little sprite nieces; and a host of other loving family members, both blood and chosen. Paul was greeted in Heaven by his father, Ray Johnson. When Paul left this world, he left behind his soul mate, best friend, co-conspirator, and the love of his life, Sherri Foster. He also left behind his loyal, four-legged boy.

Carmel United Methodist Church in Pasadena, MD from 7-9PM on Friday, October 28th, and his memorial service will be held at Our Lady of the Chesapeake Church on Saturday, October 29th at 11AM.
