Britt “Sug” Johnson
September 22, 1939 ‒ March 12, 2018
Britt “Sug” Johnson Sr. passed away Monday morning, March 12, 2018 in Country Club Mt. Vernon surrounded by his family. He was 78.
He was born September 22, 1939 in Hazard, Kentucky to parents Sonny Mckinley & Molly (Combs) Johnson. His family later relocated to Mansfield, and Britt went on to serve our country by joining the US Army Reserve and was honorably discharged after 2 years.
A man of all trades, Britt had many jobs throughout his lifetime. He owned and operated a gas station, canoe livery, was self-employed as a carpenter and roofer, and most recently worked for Richland County in the road department.
In spare time Britt enjoyed the outdoors, whether it was fishing, mushroom hunting, coon hunting or quadding. He also had a love for music and could be found playing his guitar, two-stepping, or having a jam session with friends. Britt was a very generous man and was truly loved by everyone he came in contact with, especially his grandchildren. He definitely never knew a stranger and will be missed by all who love him.
He is survived by his children Britt (Megan Hanford) Johnson Jr. and Brittney Johnson; nephew Justin Hurell; grandchildren Emalee and Evan; Megan’s daughter Emery; siblings Kelly Chapman of Butler and Marie Jackson of Mason; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Britt was preceded in death by his siblings Martha Clements, Herman “Tommy” Johnson, Gladys Deel, Connie Hill, and Bessie Walker; and sister-in-law June Johnson.
A funeral service in Britt’s honor will take place Friday, March 16, 2018 at 2 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home with calling hours from 1-2 p.m. Burial will follow in Bellville Cemetery.
