Obituary of Randolph Glenn Johnson
Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather RANDOLPH “GLENN” JOHNSON went home on March 16, 2023, at the age of 92. Glenn was born and raised in Washington, D.C., and served in the Air Force during the Korean War period. He graduated from Roosevelt High School and attended the University of Maryland with a degree in Industrial Engineering. His son and grandsons followed in his path, attending the University of Maryland, pursuing engineering studies, and/or serving our country after graduating from the United States Merchant Marine Academy. He was a Maryland Terps fan to the end. After an honorable discharge from the Air Force, Glenn devoted his career to civil service. His career in the federal government spanned 36 years where he rose to the rank of SES, the government’s most senior level. One of his career highlights was the opportunity to have worked with Sergeant Shriver in the Office of Economic Opportunity, helping form the Head Start Program. He retired as Chief of Personnel at the Administrative Office for the U.S. Courts. After his retirement, Glenn moved with his wife and youngest daughter to Tampa, Florida, where he resided for 25 years. He enjoyed all that Florida had to offer, his pool, year-round golfing weather, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent the last five years of his life in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, close to his daughter and younger grandchildren. Glenn was a lifelong avid golfer and instilled the love of the game in his family. The Washingtonian, Norbeck, Brook Manor, and Carrollwood Country Clubs are all special places in Glenn and his family’s hearts, as they were where many lifelong friendships began and where so many family memories were created. Glenn held his own in the bowling alley, in darts, and on the dance floor. He was an avid gardener. His garden at 5010 Russett Road in Rockville, Maryland, was the envy of the whole neighborhood. He loved sports and to debate politics, but most of all he loved his family. If to love is to sacrifice for others, there is no greater love Glenn could have shown his children. He was their rock of support. He never missed a game or school event and carried on that legacy with his grandchildren, loving every opportunity he had to watch their activities. He will truly be missed by all he left behind. He was a “guy’s guy”, lighthearted, funny, and fiercely loyal. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Kimberley Johnson of Mt. Pleasant, SC; sister Audrey Nickell of Berlin, MD; son Randolph “Randy” Johnson, Jr. (Sarah) of Middletown, MD; daughter Leslie McIntyre (Mike) of Berlin, MD; daughter Bonnie “Lynn” Johnson of Swansboro, NC; daughter Jennifer Ivey (David) of Mt. Pleasant, SC; grandchildren Tom McIntyre (Ashley) of Montecito, CA; Craig McIntyre (Lauren) of New Market, MD; Parker Randolph Johnson of Frederick, MD; James “Garrett” Johnson of Pace, FL; Cole, Cheyenne, and Cooper Ivey of Mt. Pleasant, SC; great granddaughter Drew Kennedy McIntyre of New Market, MD; nephews William Nickell of Berlin, MD; Robert Nickell, Jr.(Vera) of Greenbackville, VA; first cousins Ralph Hamaker of Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Jan Fermoyle of Sandy Hook, VA; brother-in-law Randy Marsh (Roxanne) of Erlanger, Kentucky; sister-in-law Candy Bruns (Steve) of Greenwood, IN; and many cousins on both sides of the family. He was preceded in death by his mother, Aubrey Johnson, father, Randolph Thomas Johnson, and brother-in-law Robert Nickell, and many good friends and family who he will wonderfully reunite with. Services will be held at the Church at LifePark at 1151 George Browder Blvd. in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina on March 31st at 1:00 p.m., with a Celebration of Life to follow. He will be inurned at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Roper Hospice Cottages, 676 Wando Park Blvd., Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Johnson family.
