My thoughts and prayers to Howard's family. Howard brought a smile to everyone he met and his positive outlook and attitude was a gift he shared with us all. I especially enjoyed the cute and clever names he created for his fellow employees at CP&L, He will be missed..

Some of my favorite moments spent with my Granddaddy involved playing the piano. Every time I visited my Grandparents I would beg him to play with me, our favorite duo was, “Heart and Soul.” I was always off key or beat and he would tell me I was wonderful. Another funny memory that comes to mind was when I wanted to use the riding lawnmower to cut the grass. He spent a few hours teaching me every intricate detail about how the lawnmower worked while I sat there waiting patiently. By the end of his tutorial, the sun was setting, I was an expert on Riding Lawnmower’s and the grass still needed to be cut. My Granddaddy had a great sense of humor and had a very big heart, I’m grateful he is at peace smiling down on us.

I worked with Howard at CP&L. He was a wonderful man. Howard was always laughing and could put a smile on your face with all of the jokes he used to tell. I remember how I would pass him in the hallway and he would say he was headed to the breakroom for a toast-em-up cheese sandwich. Howard was a pleasure to know. My heartfelt sympathy is extended to his family. May God bless you!

We saw Howard for many years here at our office. He was always a pleasure to see. One thing about Mr. Johnson, he was never short on words! He was so very happy when we finally got his eyes all fixed up and didn’t have to wear glasses any longer after a lifetime of need. We have missed him for a while now and we wish his wife and family peace and fond memories.
