Dennis Johnson Obituary

Dennis R. Johnson, 72, of Coatesville, PA, passed away on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at the Chester County Hospital in West Chester.

Born in Coatesville, PA, he was the son of the late Richard and Cornelia "Sue" Johnson. Dennis was the husband of the late Lisa Mae Perry Johnson. He was affectionately known as “Denny” by his family and friends. 

Denny attended the public schools in Coatesville. After high school graduation, he attended Cheyney University, where he earned his bachelor's degree in Accounting. In addition to his accounting work, Denny was also passionate about construction and carpentry work, which he pursued with unwavering dedication.

Denny was a devout Christian who attended several churches over the years, including Olivet Baptist Church in Coatesville, New Destiny Fellowship in Wilmington, DE, Greater Deliverance Coatesville, and most recently, Holy Dove Fellowship in Coatesville. He was a member of the NAACP of Chester County where he served as treasurer. 

He was a loving father and grandfather who could fix anything that needed repair. His passion for restoring his 67 Chevy Nova was a testament to his incredible talent as a carpenter, and his love for playing golf and listening to old-school jazz was known to all who knew him.

Denny leaves cherished memories to his sons, Dennis L. Johnson of Wilmington, Derrick R. Johnson (Kelly) of Lynchburg, VA; daughter, Aerial S. Johnson of Greenbelt, MD;  brother, Gilbert R. Johnson of Lancaster; sister, Valerie Johnson of Coatesville; grandchildren: Donovan Ashton, Londyn Johnson, Shonn Johnson; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Denny's passing has left a void in the hearts of his family, friends, and the entire community. His legacy as a skilled carpenter and a kind-hearted man who touched the lives of many will never be forgotten.
