U. S. Army Vietnam War Veteran
Beloved ‟Chucky”, ‟Chuckles”, ‟Charlie”, ‟Cee”, ‟Dad”, ‟Papa” and ‟Uncle”

Charles Evans Johnson, 74, a longtime resident of Mary Immaculate Nursing Home of Lawrence, formerly of Lowell, passed away on Sunday, August 16, 2020, after complications from a stroke. He was the beloved husband of Melvina (Bradley) Johnson, with whom he had celebrated 48 years of marriage on April 4th.

Charles was born in Woodville, Mississippi on January 14, 1946, to Lucille Hillery, and was educated through the Woodville school system, going on to attend Dillard University in Louisiana.

Mr. Johnson enlisted in the United States Army on December 13, 1967, serving with the HHC 2nd Battalion, 23rd Infantry, Eighth Army, until his honorable discharge on August 29, 1969. He received the National Defense Service Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, and the Overseas Service Bar.

After proudly serving his country, Mr. Johnson began a 35-year career as a dedicated Foreman and Supervisor at Raytheon Company in Andover, retiring in 2003.

Everyone who knew Charles was drawn to his warm, outgoing and fun-loving nature. Always the life of the party, he had a contagious laugh and a smile that brightened any room he entered.

Charlie especially enjoyed dancing, entertaining friends and family, cooking, gardening and making homemade wines. He valued family above all else, and was the most loving person anyone could ever hope to have in their life.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a daughter, D’Andria Canas; three sisters, Denise Hillery, Myrtle Brown, and Elfreida Christopherson; two grandchildren, Marcus and Elyana, a brother, Frank Hillery, and several nephews and nieces.

It being his wish, funeral services were private. At a safer time in the future, we will gather to celebrate and honor his life and legacy.
