MILLSBORO, Del. - Paul D. Johnson, 78, of Millsboro, and formerly of Maryland, passed away at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford on July 6, 2013. Born in Washington, DC on August 3, 1934, he was the son of the late Ralph R. and Annie M. Davis Johnson. He was a veteran of the US Air Force, and retired from the International Union of Elevator Construction Workers. He was a good carpenter and loved to restore antique automobiles. He had a large, rambunctious personality and overwhelming presence, yet was very kind, loved to have fun and was a showman – especially for kids. He was very good to his grandchildren, very fond of his natural and "adopted" grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara A. Johnson and his children: Paul D. Johnson, Jr, and wife Cathy; Robert R. Johnson; James A. Johnson, and Patricia Howard, and her husband, Alfred. Also surviving are a brother, Harry R. Johnson, and his wife, Jean and a multitude of grandchildren and great grandchildren, and extended family and friends, and especially his adopted grandchildren: Chrissy and Jennifer Goncalves, and April Seabrook. He is also survived by a feline friend, "Sam."
