I just came across this obituary, two years after the fact. I have very fond memories of Vann from our time together in the Navy. We were on the same P3 flight crew in 1972-73. Vann was my closest friend during those years. I so appreciated his sincerity, caring, and willingness to talk about what was really going on inside. It was very rare in those days.
Kind wishes, John Stott

Vann and I played romantic interests in the Senior Play "Carousel". He was so kind to me when I fell when he was throwing me over his shoulder. He never told anyone that we had that accident. I always thought he was a wonderful person and enjoyed doing the play with him. So sorry for your loss. Linda Evans Wells

Vann and I started knowing each other and working together in the late 1970s after he, Sandra, and Scott came back from California. We worked together closely for over thirty years; and he was a positve influence in my life, and the lives of evetyone he touched. He was a great guy, buddy, and good friend. He was FAMILY! The news of his passing from Bev and Joyce has hit hard! My prayers are with his family, especially Sandra, Scott, and Tanya, but also his extended family, brothers and sisters at CAI. He is and will be terriby missed in our lives,but will always remain in our hearts! May his soul rest in peace, and may he bathe in the GLORY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!

I was saddened to learn of Vann's death. He was delightful--loved the photo which absolutely personifies him. I will be in England with my son & his family in June when the memorial service is planned. I will keep the entire Johnson family in my thoughts & prayers & always in my heart.
