Ronald G. Johnson Sr., 79, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 26, 2020 at the Center for Hospice Care, South Bend.

After attending Plymouth High School, he went to work in the construction industry for Panel Craft. Before retirement, he worked at Del Monte for 23 years as a Lift Truck Driver.
Ronald was known as one of the biggest caregivers, being a protective covering over his children and grandchildren. He was known for always putting others needs before his own. He would never miss a school event or party that his family was involved in. Ronald would tell you that everything was okay with him, even if it really was not, so that nobody would worry about him. Ronald enjoyed riding his bike everywhere. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Plymouth.
