John C. Johnson, III

August 4, 1946 — December 14, 2022

John C. Johnson, III, 76, of Dover, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, December 14, 2022 in his home following a sudden illness.

Born in Dennison, he was the son of the late John C. and Leah K. “Kay” (Thomas) Johnson and was a United States Navy veteran having served during the Vietnam War. John owned and operated Johnson and Associates at Dover where he worked as a Certified Financial Planner.

John attended Riverside Community Church at Dover and was a member of the New Philadelphia Elks, the New Philadelphia VFW and the Moose Lodge. Known by his grandchildren as “Papa Cars,” he loved everything about fast cars and driving his Corvette.

Despite his handicap, nothing stopped him from attending any of his grandchildren’s sporting events. He loved being with his family and some of his most cherished memories came from being with his daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren while on vacations to both Ocean Isle and Holden Beach. John was also an avid poker player who played weekly with his friends as well as in numerous local poker tournaments.

Surviving is his wife, Renee E. (Walters) Johnson, whom he married November 4, 2013; daughter, Jackie (Brian) Proctor and three grandchildren, Daniel, Mark and Piper of New Philadelphia; daughter, Jill (Chris) Lipinski and two granddaughters, Annabelle and Alaina of New Philadelphia; two stepdaughters, Debra Webber and her companion Jerry White of Dover, Tisha Thompson of Dover; grandson, Lucas Thompson and a great-granddaughter, Cloey Thompson; two sisters, Rebecca “Becky” (Clyde) Pearch of Michigan, Linda (Tom) Carpenter of Kilgore and his dog, Zoey.

In addition to his parents, John is preceded in death by a sister, Barb Johnson and his pet dog, Bella.
