Daniel W. Johnson Sr., 82, of Lititz, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Dec. 16, 2018.

He was the husband of Carol A. Clare Johnson, with whom he shared 57 years of marriage this past Sept. 23. Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late Horace W. and Sarah Shaw Johnson.

Dan graduated from Drexel University with a B.S. in civil engineering. He retired in 1998 as the quarry manager for the Alan Myers Construction Company in Coatesville. Prior to this, he had worked for Corsons Stone Quarry in Plymouth Meeting and DM Stolzfus in Talmage.
