Gordon A. Johnson

Madison Gordon A. Johnson, age 72, of Madison, passed away unexpectedly, surrounded by family, on Saturday, November 15, 2014, due to of complications of his illness at University Hospital, Madison.

He was born November 3, 1942 in Madison, the son of Milford and Oliva C. (Bollenbeck) Johnson. He will be remembered as one of the most compassionate people you could find; always putting others first and willing to say “yes” to anyone needing a helping hand. He looked forward to gathering for coffee every day with the guys. Gordon treasured being grandpa to his granddaughter, Samantha, and called her his “little sweetie”. He was also very close to his cousin Larry, who was like a brother to him, and they spoke with each other every day. He will be really missed by his family and friends.

Gordon is survived by his daughter, Beth (Ralph) Rogers of Madison; three sisters, Charlene (Harlan) Boley of Evansville, Jane (Paul) Mack of Elk Grove, IL, Judy (Patrick) Brady of Madison; and many special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his very special friend, Lu Nack, his parents; and a brother, Leo “Butch” Johnson.

The family extends a special thank you to University Hospital for their compassionate care of Gordon.
