Tom was the retired owner and operator of Johnson Trucking Company and was a 15-year Volunteer Firefighter with the City of Cary, IL Fire Dept, retiring as Lieutenant. Tom was an active 82-year-old and will be greatly missed by his buddies in the Challenge Golf League as well as the Mye Tavern Family.

Tom was a proud veteran of the US ARMY and was a true patriot. Tom was a man who loved to laugh but nothing put a smile on his face like his grandchildren. Survivors include his loving wife, Marion Kunicki Johnson; his children, Michelle Phillips and husband Rob, Vicki Hendle and husband John, Stefanie Johnson, Mike Johnson and wife Kristen, Vince Weber and wife Laura, Tami Fiene and husband Taylor, and Jennie Beshel and husband Tim; his many loving and adored grandchildren, and his brothers, Dick and Gary Johnson.
