- Jeffrey B. Johnson, aka JJ, "clicked his heels and let go of life" October 27, 2017, at his home in Bangor. He was born November 12, 1948, in Bangor, the eldest son of Robert T. Johnson and Frances (Giles) Johnson.
Jeff graduated from Bangor High School in 1967, after which he served in the Army. Jeff married his wife, Pamela Wade Johnson, in 1970. Pam and Jeff built a beautiful home in Bucksport in the woods Jeff loved. Pam and Jeff celebrated forty-seven years of marriage in January.
Jeff taught and guided many students during his thirty-five years of service as Cooperative Coordinator at Hampden Academy. It is well known that his support, dedication, firm hand and strong embrace helped many students graduate from high school and become successful in the world of work. Jeff's strut, sense of humor, mischievous nature, and ethics defined him. Following his retirement from teaching, Jeff worked in the carpentry field. Jeff was a jack- of- all trades, a master of many.
Surviving in addition to his wife, Pam, are his sons, Jacob Johnson and his wife, Rachel, and Dale Johnson; daughters, Chelsea Johnson and Lori Bryant; granddaughters, Mallori Bryant and Mya Johnson; sisters, Judy Hider and her husband, Phil, and Debra Haley and her husband, Don, sister-in-law, Mary McCarthy and her husband, Mark Hathaway; brothers, Robert (Beanie) Johnson and his wife, Marisa, and Steven Johnson and his wife, Irene, and brother-in-law, Peter Wade; and his very special mother-in-law, Julia P.
