James Armond Johnson was born on April 7, 1923, at home, in rural Webster, S.D., to Jacob A. and Anna S. (nee McCarolson) Johnson. He was raised on the family farm and received his education in Rural Webster. He entered the U.S. Army and served overseas until his honorable discharge. He returned to Webster, where he farmed, drove dump truck, and worked as a mechanic. He married Verna Helwig on Sept. 23, 1966, in Webster, S.D. They moved to Neillsville, where they lived for a couple of years before purchasing a home southeast of Loyal. He worked as a mechanic at Mid-State Truck Service, Marshfield, for many years, and retired from V&H Heavy Trucks, Marshfield, where he had worked as a mechanic for more than 25 years. After retirement, he worked on the Hubing farm, southeast of Loyal, for many years. He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, a member of the Loyal American Legion Post #175, and had many interests, but especially loved spending time with his grandchildren and family, fishing, gardening, and just being outdoors.

He will be sadly missed by his wife Verna, Loyal; one son, Jake (Roxy) Johnson, Wausau; one step-son, Jozef Wroblewski, Santa Cruz, Calif.; one stepdaughter, Dyann Scheel, Loyal; two grandchildren, Nichole and Samantha Johnson; two step-grandchildren, Isaiah Maki and Sadie Ronia; and four sisters, Sylvia (Earl) Luchterhand, Neillsville, Carole Davidson, Webster, S.D., Marilyn (Al) Hemmingson, Bradley, S.D.; and Lillian (Eddie) Pies, Webster, S.D.
