RALEIGH – William H. “Bill” Johnson, 90, passed away Thursday, August 6, 2020.

Bill was born in Wake County on February 23, 1930 to the late Cephus Sanford and Lillie Medlin Johnson. He served his country in the U.S. Air Force, from which he was honorably discharged. Having a strong work ethic instilled in him at an early age, Bill was a dedicated employee of the U.S. Postal Service, from which he retired after an admirable career.

A man of faith, Bill was a devout Christian and member of West Clayton Church of God. He was also a member of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Association.

Of all his pastimes, Bill’s most cherished was his family. He is survived by his loving wife, Hazel Willard Johnson; son, Jerald Benjamin “Ben” Johnson and wife, Karen of Wendell; and grandson, Jonah Benjamin Johnson. His warm friendship and kindness will be forever remembered by his church family, friends, and coworkers in the days ahead.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Bernice Wiggs; and brothers, Carroll B. Johnson, Edward Johnson, and Sam Johnson.

  2. Elsie Walker Bynum

    Many fond memories of Bill. We moved to the hill as we all called it in 1960 and lived right next door to his parents. Haven’t seen him in a long time but have always considered this family as friends. When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be. Prayers for Hazel , Ben and the rest of his family at this time of loss. 🙏🏻🎂Elsie
