Obituaries: Gary G. Johnson

October 09, 2020

March 19, 1951 – October 6, 2020
Cornwall, NY

Gary “Garry” G. Johnson, of Cornwall, NY entered into eternal rest on October 6, 2020 at The Kaplan Family Hospice Residence, Newburgh, NY. He was 69 years old.

The son of the late George Alfred Johnson and Melva Colleen (Taylor) Johnson, Garry was born on March 19, 1951 in Suffern, NY.

Garry earned his Master of Acupuncture Degree from Tri-State College of Acupuncture after retiring from carpentry.

He was a longtime member of the Cornwall Independence Day Committee. A family statement reads: “Garry made an impact on everyone who met him. He was a multi-talented autodidact with an artistic soul. Hard-working, resourceful, and self-reliant, he had a particular sense of humor and outlook on life. Dad always signed off with a hearty kiss: ‘mwah!’ He will be missed greatly”.

Garry is survived by his stepmother: Barbara Johnson; ex-wife and caretaker: Victoria A. Johnson; his daughters: Katherine and Victoria; and his son: Garry II. He was the proud grandfather of Benjamin, 9 and Lydia, 4. He is also survived by his siblings: Debbie Trotz, Cheryl Mullen, Teri Popkave, Eric Johnson, Elisa Mcguire, Julie Clegg, Richard Clegg, Cindy Potters and Lizabeth Bloom; cousins, nieces, nephews; life-long best friend, Rick Raymond; and his beloved dog: Lola.
