Frank Campbell Johnson

WINDSOR, Ontario – Frank Campbell Johnson was called home to be with his Lord on November 27, 2016. Johnson served as Lutheran Church–Canada’s Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1999-2002, having first been elected to the board in 1996. He also served the church at the District level as well.

Johnson was born March 19, 1941 in Windsor to the late Fred and Mildred Johnson. He married Carole (nee Scheuerman) on February 12, 1966, and they celebrated their fiftieth anniversary earlier this year. The Lord blessed them with two children: Christine and her husband Dan Keech, and Bryan and his wife Jennifer. Johnson was grandfather to three grandchildren: Indica Keech and Evan and Grace Johnson.

Johnson was an educator for 35 years, beginning in 1959, with the then Windsor Board of Education, serving as a teacher at Queen Victoria and at Taylor schools and as Vice Principal at Glenwood school. He returned to Queen Victoria as Principal, where he served for six years, before transferring, as Principal, to Forest Glade school. For the last twenty years of his career, he served the Board as Superintendent of Schools until his retirement in 1995.

Johnson was a life-long member of First Lutheran Church in Windsor, serving over the years as a Sunday school teacher, Sunday school superintendent, choir member, congregation president, and elder. He taught the adult Bible class every Sunday morning for twenty-five years. He was also the first principal of First Lutheran Christian Academy (1995), among other service to the church.

A funeral for Johnson will take place November 30, 2016 at First Lutheran Church in Windsor. The family encouraged donations in memory of Frank to be made to First Lutheran Church and First Lutheran Christian Academy.
