Mark Thomas Johnson, 60, returned to his heavenly home on January 4, 2018.
Mark was born January 1, 1958, to Donald and Jean (Thurman) Johnson. His father passed away in February 1999; his loving mother survives.
He had two brothers; Jay Johnson surviving and Billy (Shirley) Johnson, who preceded him.
Mark was a proud United States Marine, serving his country in 1980, stationed in Yuma, Ariz., until he was honorably discharged in 1984.
Once a devoted captain at the Danville Department of Corrections for 10 years, but for the past 15 years he worked for the Chrysler Corp.
Mark loved all kinds of music, but as an avid Beatles fan, he had a huge collection of Beatle memorabilia. He was passionate about reading and watching nostalgic black-and-white movies, was a member of Family Worship Center in Kokomo, Ind., but above all, he enjoyed spending time with his daughters.
Mark married Elizabeth High and adopted two daughters, Amanda and Kimberly, and they had one daughter together, Karha. Later, Mark married Lynn Sollars and they had two daughters together, Kaylani and Kenzi.
Mark was blessed with his children and was a devoted, caring, kind and patient father. He is survived by his daughters, Karha (Eric) Rosson, Kaylani Johnson, Kenzi Johnson, Amanda Long and Kimberly Washkowiak . He has two granddaughters, McKenna Rosson and Maci Long; and four grandsons, Nicholas Hedges, Dylan Washkowiak, Kaiden and Christopher Hazel.
Everyone who knew Mark understood his love and devotion for God, his children and his country.
Through his wishes, Mark will be cremated and no services will be held. If you would like to honor Mark, the family would appreciate any donations to be given to the Wounded Warrior Project in his name.
