  • Paul K. Johnson, 83, Brookfield, died Saturday, June 21, 2014, at Life Care Center, Brookfield.
    At his request there was cremation and no public service planned.  A family memorial will be held later. Arrangements are under the direction of Delaney Funeral Home, Marceline.
    Paul was born in Ethel, Missouri on July 28, 1930, to Leonard M. and Iva (White) Johnson. He married Sondra Cavanah and she survives him.
    Paul was a Veteran of the United States Marines, a graduate of Marceline High School, received a Masters Degree from Kirksville State Teachers College, and was a member of the Marceline First Christian Church. He coached and was a school superintendent for 29 years. He spent an additional 20 years as a supervisor for the State Department of Education. He enjoyed competing in sports, had a four year football scholarship, and played baseball in the minor leagues,  while in the Marines. He later enjoyed his new sport of golf.  Paul was unpretentious, quick witted and so proud of his children and grandchildren. He wanted them all to have a good education.
    Treasuring his memory will be his wife, Sondra, Brookfield; son, Craig and wife, Paula Johnson of Jefferson City and their children, Phillip, Spencer, Caitlin, and grandson, Parker; son, Kirk and wife, Tammy Johnson of Kearney and their children, Brittany, Nathan, Sydney and Dylan. Paul also leaves a sister, Garnet and her husband, Harold Minor, Marceline; and a brother, Isaac Keith Johnson and wife, Sally of Kansas City, MO.
    He was preceded in death by a sister Esther, brother Leonard, son Kent, and a grandchild Lance.
