RIP Tim Johnson


It just came to my attention that Timothy Johnson, former NC GOP Vice Chairman, passed away on January 30.

From his Facebook page:

Our father, Timothy F. Johnson, peacefully left this earth on Friday, January 30th, 2015 and embarked his new journey as our angel alongside his mother Carol Ann Wilson-Johnson (Nani) and his father Franklyn Edward Johnson. He was an inspirational man who was able to travel constantly and met amazing people who also influenced him as a strong leader. Unfortunately, we do not have the words to truly explain what this man did for people around him, what he meant to the people close to him and just how much he did for others.

He leaves behind four children by the names of Ruben, Ryan, Reñeta, and Rashonda. He also had seven beautiful grandchildren. We would all appreciate your generous donations to assist in funeral, medical, and traveling expenses to lay his ashes to rest in his beloved hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
We have created two options for our amazing supporters to donate to our father’s memorial. The following are where you can donate:

We will have further updates on when his ceremony will be this weekend in Omaha, Nebraska.

Thank you everyone for your love and support during this difficult time for our family. Instead of mourning, our father would rather everyone remember the happy memories and to rejoice in his passing to the heavens. God bless.

Johnson was the Founder and Chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation and made history on June 13, 2009, when he was elected Vice Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, becoming the first African American to hold the position since the party’s inception on March 27, 1867. Dr. Johnson completed 21 years of military service with the United States Army, serving as enlisted soldier and commissioned officer and received several military honors. Twice elected Chairman of the Buncombe County, N.C., Republican Party, Dr. Johnson was a delegate to the 2008 Republican National Convention and a panelist at the 2008 Black Republican Forum in New York.

He will be missed.
