John Johnson

Mr. John A, Johnson was born November 27, 1949, to the late John Johnson and the late Elizabeth Johnson. On October 30, 2021, he departed this earthly life peacefully at MUSC – Florence after an illness.

John attended the Public Schools of Florence, South Carolina.

John spent most of his life working at CSX Railroads. He later gained employment with Piggly Wiggly, where he was known as the Grill Man. He was responsible for cooking ribs and chicken outside the store and will be remembered for making his “Do what you do sauce.”
