Jeremy Allan Johnson

May 22, 1971 - January 15, 2023

Jeremy Allan Johnson was born on May 22, 1971, in Topeka, Kansas. He moved to Texas when he was seven days old. Jeremy is the son of James (Jim) Allan and Linda Johnson. Growing up he loved to travel on family vacations. He was able to see most of the country from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. Jeremy graduated from Krum High School in 1990, and then attended Cook County Junior College. He worked for many years for Aramark in the North Texas ISD school district cafeteria. He was also a General level Ham radio operator, a hobby that he shared with his father for many years.

After graduation Jeremy and his family hosted foreign exchange students from Brazil, Finland, Germany, and Russia. He welcomed the students as family and enjoyed learning about the different cultures. The following were shared about Jeremy from some of the students.

            Matthias (Germany): He is a wonderful person who welcomed me with open arms.

            Annika (Germany): I remember him smiling and being positive.

            Asya (Russia): He has always been a very kind person and I remember this kind sweet smile                                              on his face.

            Harri (Finland): He was positive person and funny, we had good times together.

Jeremy was a talented and accomplished hand spinner. Receiving the sheared wool from an alpaca ranch in New Mexico, he cleaned it and prepared it for spinning and then created beautiful hand spun yarn. Hand spinning was, for many years, his profession.

In notifying friends about his death, one word was used again and again. That word was kind. Jeremy was a kind and gentle man.  He had recently returned to Topeka to live near family. He is survived by his mother Linda Johnson, and his aunts and uncles Victoria and William Harvey, Steve Brown and Mary Perez, Don and Patricia Brown, Kim Brown, Janie and Ed Edwards, and Don and Donna Johnson.

Jeremy was a certified Methodist lay speaker and worked in the Truck Stop Ministry in Denton, Texas. He was a member over the years of Krum United Methodist Church, Oak Park UMC in Paris, Texas, First Christian Church of Paris, and recently attended Grace UMC in Topeka. The memorial service will be held at Grace UMC conducted by the Reverend Kevin Rea.
