JOHNSON, Rear Admiral Millard Jerry "Johnny" , SC, USN- Passed away on Saturday, March 12, 2011 at the Orlando Veterans Administration Community Living Center after a lengthy illness.
He is survived by his wife Anita T. Johnson (Hann) of Port Royal, Newfoundland, Canada; son Barry C. D. Johnson of Orlando, Florida; son Shawn C. D. Johnson, daughter-in-law Sharon G. Johnson and grandchildren Natalie, Quinn, and Hope Johnson of Winchester, Massachusetts; son Quin B. Johnson of Jupiter, Florida; daughter Karla L.D. Bennett (Johnson), son-in-law James F. Bennett and grandchildren Owen, Sean, and Matilda Bennett of Hummelstown, Pennsylvania; brother Ben Johnson and sister-in-law Ruth Johnson of Sand Gap, Kentucky; and brother Otis Johnson and sister-in-law Naunerl Johnson of Berea, Kentucky.
Johnson was a man borne from a commitment to excellence and a dedication to his country, which ensured that Rear Admiral Millard Jerry Johnson would rise through the ranks of the United States Navy with accelerated or "below the zone" promotions at each step of his distinguished and highly decorated military career.
Johnson enlisted in the U.S. Navy because he was initially denied a commission due to his young age, even though he had already graduated from college. Rear Admiral Johnson eventually attended Officer's Candidate School and was commissioned an Ensign in the U.S. Navy in 1954, at the age of 19, making him one of the youngest junior officers in U.S. Naval history. He rose through the ranks of the Supply Corps and ultimately achieved the rank of Rear Admiral at the young age of 45.
Rear Admiral Johnson was born Christmas Day 1934 in Sand Gap, Kentucky to Norm and Hattie Johnson (Hurst). The son of a coal miner in eastern Kentucky, he graduated from McKee High School in McKee, Kentucky at the age of 14 and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Berea College in Kentucky, a school for students with limited resources, while still only 18. He then began his military career as a supply officer at the U.S. Naval Station in Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada where he met and soon married his wife Anita. The couple raised four children as Rear Admiral Johnson's military service took them all over the United States. He was on the commissioning detail for the USS Independence (CVA-62) at the New York Naval Shipyard. Johnson worked as an officer in Norfolk, Virginia, Pensacola, Florida, and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania before serving as the budget officer and financial advisor for the Defense Electronic Supply Center in Dayton, Ohio.
While serving as a Special Assistant to Admiral Hyman Rickover, "the father of the nuclear Navy," Johnson was awarded the Legion of Merit Medal for successfully implementing a program to handle and document nuclear parts at the Atomic Energy Commission Naval Reactors Program specifically highlighting his dedication to safety and national security.
Among the other numerous medals awarded to Rear Admiral Johnson were the Bronze Star with valor device for meritorious service aboard the USS Constellation (CVA-64) while in combat operations on back-to-back tours in the Vietnam War, the Meritorious Service Medal with Gold Star, the Navy Commendation Medal, and the Presidential Unit Citation Medal.
In 1969 a Brigadier General in the United States Air Force wrote a seven-page letter recommending young Commander Millard Jerry Johnson for another early promotion, this time to the rank of Captain. "CDR Johnson is an officer of liberal education, refined manners, punctilious courtesy and the nicest sense of personal honor," the general wrote. "A careful assessment of his overall performance reveals the presence of an exceptionally outstanding capability and a brilliant command potential worthy of accelerated promotion and increased responsibility."
At the age of 39, Rear Admiral Johnson earned a promotion to Captain and served as Executive Officer at the Naval Supply Center in Charleston, South Carolina and then Commanding Officer of the Fleet Material Support Office in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. His final military assignment was at the Navy Comptroller Office in Washington D.C. where he served as Assistant Comptroller and Commander of the Navy Accounting and Finance office where he was promoted to Rear Admiral, one of the youngest in the history of the U.S. Navy.
Additionally, Rear Admiral Johnson was commissioned a Kentucky Colonel by the Governor of Kentucky and bestowed the honorary title of Admiral of the state of Nebraska.
"My father had an amazing sense of personal honor," said Admiral Johnson's daughter, Karla Bennett. "He was tireless at his professional duties and would not quit until things were perfect."
In addition to his undergraduate degree, Johnson earned a Masters degree in Business Administration from George Washington University and a Ph.D. degree in Logistics, Consulting, and Management Engineering from Pacific Western University.
Rear Admiral Johnson will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors. The date of the funeral service has not yet been set.

The family grieving her leaving and celebrating her life and spirit are her partner Gloria Bennett, sisters: Helen, Theresa (Michael), and Maureen (Michael); brothers: John (Sally), Stan (Donna), and George (Donna), Gerry (Georgina), Adrian (Marsha); nieces and nephews: Liam, Anna, Michael, Melanie, Terry, Suzanne, Tim, David, Cheryl and Matthew; the Bennett family, mother Fanny, brother Al, and sisters Marguerite, Lillian, Vera, Jenny, Grace and Madonna, and her sisters in spirit in the Presentation Community. Marie was loved deeply and will be missed by family and friends in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and throughout Canada and the USA. Marie lived life to the fullest. She found great joy in music, nature and our connections to each other. She had a gift for encouraging people to find and accept themselves for who they really are. This was particularly evident in her later years through her work with women at the Marguerite Centre. A Memorial Service will be held at St. Marguerite Parish, Sacred Heart Church site in Timberlea on Wednesday March 30 at 2:00 p.m. Her family and friends will gather for Eucharistic Celebration and interment of her ashes in St. John's during the summer at a date to be announced. In lieu of flowers a donation to The Marguerite Centre, P.O. Box 1, 1714 St. Margaret's Bay Road, Lakeside, Nova Scotia, B3T 1M6, would be most appreciated.
Let every gesture of kindness and sign of affection be a celebration of the love and caring we share.

ROWSELL (Starkes), Mildred (Mickie) - age 44. Mickie passed away on March 7, 2011 at a hospital in Genk, Belgium, from complications of a recent surgery. Mickie is predeceased by her parents-in-law Rex and Emma (Morey) Rowsell, of Port Anson, NL. Mickie was raised in Robert's Arm, NL, by parents Linda and Gordon Starkes. It was there that she met and married Rick Rowsell, the love of her life for 30 years. Mickie and Rick became proud parents of their daughter, Jenna in 1993. As the spouse of a Canadian Military member Mickie was "posted" to a number of cities across Canada, including Gander, Edmonton, and Trenton. The most recent posting in 2008 saw Mickie and family move to Kreuzrath, Germany, as Rick was posted to the NATO Air Base Geilenkirchen. Mickie supported her country for over 25 years as a military spouse. She managed the family life and provided support to her husband during the many tours away from home. Mickie also provided friendship and support to other military families who needed it in dealing with the high stress levels encountered in military life. Mickie was a very social person and enjoyed meeting people. Having lived in several communities she formed many lasting friendships. She was known to approach strangers in her new neighbourhood and tell them that she felt they should be friends, and so they became, it was as natural and simple as that. With the challenge of distance separating Mickie from her many friends, she often kept in touch through Facebook. In Mickie's messages it was clear that she was a person who enjoyed life, embraced simple pleasures, loved her family, was so proud of her daughter and husband, loved Newfoundland and Canada, offered kindness and support to her many, many friends, openly shared herself with others, and truly lived. Mickie enjoyed travel and took advantage of the different places she lived to explore the world around her. This was especially true with the posting to Germany, where as a family they travelled extensively throughout Europe. She enjoyed writing about her travels and sharing it with her friends. Mickie has been taken from us much too soon. She will be remembered for her big smile, infectious laugh, love of life, and love for her family. She is survived by her loving husband Rick, treasured daughter Jenna, parents Gordon & Linda, brothers Bruce (Rhea) & Robert (Cathy), sister Cindy, adored niece Jada & nephew Bradley, special foster sister Brenda, extended family and many friends. In keeping with Mickie's spirit of generosity, in lieu of flowers a donation to the CFS St. John's Military Family Resource Centre or the charity of your choice would be appreciated by her family. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service in celebration of Mickie's life will be held at Carnell's Funeral Home (Topsail Road) on March 16/2011. Open visitation will be from 2 pm to 6 pm.
