Quinten Carl Johnson passed away on Saturday, April 14 at the age of 94.
He was a lifelong resident of Hazel Hurst where he was born on Sept. 28, 1919, and spent the last several years at Sena Kean Manor in Smethport.
Quinten was the son of Henning and Blanch Johnson and brother of Paul, all of whom preceded him in death. On Dec. 14, 1940, he married Betty Timmerman to whom he was married for nearly 70 years until her death in December, 2010.
Quinten retired in 1982 from the B&O Railroad as a signal maintainer. He enlisted in the US Navy in 1943 serving in the European and North African Theater during World War II as a gunner’s mate aboard the USS Savannah.
Quinten was a member of the Hazel Hurst Methodist Church, life member of the Hamlin Township Fire Company, and the Mt. Jewett American Legion Post. He enjoyed gardening, hunting and fishing and, especially, devoted himself unselfishly to his beloved wife Betty and his children.
He is survived by a daughter, Dianna (Frank) Blair of Fairfield; two sons, Ted of Tallahassee, Fla., and Roger (Tammy) of Jesse, W. Va.; four grandchildren, Douglas Blair (Jodie), Michelle Blair-Carter (Gary), Nathan and Sheena Johnson; three step-grandchildren, Jacob, Joshua, and Cortnee; three great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
Friends will be received from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday evening, April 20, at the Cummings Funeral Home in Mr. Jewett. A funeral service will be held the next morning (Saturday) at 11 a.m. in the Hazel Hurst Methodist Church with the Rev. W. Craig Smith officiating. Following the service, he will be buried alongside Betty at the Mr. Nebo Cemetery, attended by a military Honor Guard.
The family wishes to express its deepest appreciation to the entire staff of Sena Kean Manor for the care and comfort provided to Betty and Quinten during their residence.
