Raymond Johnson, son of the late Irvin and Williemae Johnson, was born March 22, 1958, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Raymond graduated from Franklin High School, Somerset, New Jersey in 1976 and remained in the area all his life. Ray departed this life March 7, 2022, at the age of 63 years old.
Raymond was friend to all that knew him, always sharing stories and making people laugh whether they wanted to or not. He loved fishing and working on cars. Ray was affectionately called “Little Baby” by his siblings.
He had several jobs in his lifetime but spent a large part of his life working in Scrap Metal Recycling. Prior to his death he was employed by Car Pro in Somerset.
Raymond leaves behind his son, Christopher Johnson, and his partner of many years Geraldine Jackson. He also leaves behind his siblings Marjorie Lassiter (William) Plainfield, NJ, Irvin Johnson Jr., East Orange, NJ, Elaine Johnson (Charles) Kenvil, NJ, Vanessa Roach, Hampton VA., Alvin Johnson (Valerie) of Allentown PA, Charles Brice (Fannie) of Wilmington, NC and Mary Alice Hankins of Supply, NC and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other beloved relatives and friends.
