Obituary for Joseph M. "Joe" Johnson

Joseph M. “Joe” Johnson, 76, of Gettysburg, passed away peacefully at Penn State Health Holy Spirit Hospital, Monday, June 17, 2024 in Camp Hill PA.

Born, September 9th, 1947, in Clinton Illinois, he was the son of Helen I. (Farnsworth) and Joseph E. Johnson. Joe graduated from Clinton High School Class of 1965 and accepted a scholarship offer to attend the University of Illinois for Electrical Engineering. Joe earned this scholarship by achieving the highest SAT score in the county. After College, Joe spent a majority of his career working in various roles with the Federal Communication Commission in both Gettysburg and Washington, DC. By far Joe’s biggest hobby was anything with electronics. Joe was an avid Amateur (Ham) Radio Operator for over 60 years and was in his element behind his radios, building equipment or putting up a tower.

Joe will be remembered fondly by his friends and family for his quick quips and funny takes, as well as his direct logical approach to almost any situation. His often-unmatched intelligence saw him take up many interests throughout his life including, investing, real estate, carpentry, and many more. Joe is survived by his wife, Sandra L. Johnson of Gettysburg, for whom they shared 41 years together; his son, Patrick Sease and wife Tracy and children Tyler and Kaylee.

A private ceremony for family will be held at Monahan Funeral Home in Gettysburg. Joe loved all animals big and small. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Joe’s memory may be made to the Adams County SPCA, 11 Goldenville Rd, Gettysburg PA 17325.
