Marc L. Johnson, 65, went to be with Christ on Sunday, July 31, 2022. He passed suddenly and sadly at Buffalo General Hospital. Marc was born on July 31, 1957 in Corry, Pennsylvania to Edward and the late Lila [Short] Johnson. On August 8, 1981 he married Anita Dickerson, who survives.
Marc grew up in Galeton, Pennsylvania and graduated from Galeton High School in 1976. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Houghton College in 1996. Marc loved to be active, he was an avid weight lifter and earned the title of “strong” grandpa. He spent many years upholstering furniture and restoring the interiors of classic cars. He loved the symbolism of restoration and often made reference to Christ restoring our souls. Marc had a career as a welder, retiring after 25 years of service, from Arvos in 2019. He loved being an active member of the Wellsville Bible Church where he served as an Elder of many years. After retirement he enjoyed taking RV adventures with his wife and spending quality time with his children and grandchildren. Marc lived an exemplary life modeling the love of Christ. He will be greatly missed!
