Michael A. JOHNSON

March 27, 1950 — May 26, 2024

Galeton, PA

Michael Arthur JOHNSON, of Galeton, PA, born March 28, 1950, passed away peacefully on May 26, 2024 with his family by his side.


People are strange when you're a stranger.  Luckily for Mike, he never met a stranger.  Every person he spoke to became a fast friend.  Mike loved talking to people about music, weightlifting, and his glorious fish tank.  He was passionate about sports, especially his favorite football teams, Penn State and the Steelers, and was a proud long time Galeton School Board member.  He also loved being outdoors, having bonfires surrounded by his family, friends, pets, and garden, especially his beautiful marigolds.


Mike was a lifetime resident of Galeton PA.  He went to school in Johnstown PA and became a first-rate accountant.


He is survived by his daughter Melanie (Chad) Shuemaker; his grandson, Matthew McCullough; and his loving friends who became his chosen family.  He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Deborah Johnson; his cherished daughter, Amy Johnson; and his parents, Robert “Pete” and Phyllis Johnson; all of whom we take comfort in knowing he is with now.
