Raymond Johnson

July 6, 1922 — November 12, 2017

Raymond L. Johnson, 95, was born on July 6, 1922, to Elizabeth Pfaff Johnson and Arthur Hjlamar Johnson in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  He is one of six siblings, Viola, Lorraine, Arthur, Leroy and Dale Johnson, who predecease him.

He married Jean I. Johnson of Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, on July 16, 1947, in Washington D.C.  They have two daughters, Jacqueline Johnson (Jay) of Seymour, Wisconsin, and Janet (Bruce) Bauer of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and three grandchildren, Eric Boie, Zena Bauer and Zak Bauer of Green Bay, Wisconsin, all of whom survive him.

In 1942, Raymond moved to Washington D.C. to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the Missing Files area.  In 1943, he joined the U.S. Navy and served in World War II on the submarine SS Sawfish in the Sea of Japan (often telling the story about sharing a bunk with a torpedo, until it was used).

After the war (1946), Raymond returned to Washington D.C. and to the FBI, where he met and married the love of his life Jean in 1947, and attended Princeton, and completed his degree at Benjamin Franklin University in 1949.  He became a special agent for the FBI and worked out of offices in Alabama, New Jersey, New York and Wisconsin.  After he retired in 1974, he taught Law Enforcement at Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  After retiring as an educator, he became a Private Detective (FACTS) and became part of the Wisconsin Polygraph Association.

Family, friends, and faith provided his greatest joy.  In addition, Raymond enjoyed hunting at his cabin in Glen Flora, Wisconsin, and relaxing and fishing at his cottage on Prairie Lake in Chetek, Wisconsin.  He and Jean loved to travel, especially to Las Vegas, traveling there 106 times. Together, they traveled the Caribbean and Western Europe on 25 cruises, and enjoyed road trips around the United States.

Besides family, Raymond loved his four-legged family members (Cocker Spaniels), Dixie, Myra, Angel, Schatzie and Missy.

A private memorial service will be held on Wednesday, November 15.  If you wish to honor Raymond, please say a prayer and celebrate his 95 years of a very blessed life. Online condolences may be expressed at www.muehlboettcher.com.
