Mr. Charles E. Johnson, 93, of Jefferson City, Mo. passed away Thursday, November 14, 2019 at home surrounded by family.

He was born on July 7, 1926 in Sedalia, Mo., the son of John and Effie (Runkle) Johnson. He was married on May 5, 1951 in Jefferson City, Mo. to M. Eileen Johnson who preceded him in death on July 8, 2016.

Charlie graduated from Smith Cotton High School in 1944. He served his country in the United States Army from 1955 to 1957. Charlie worked with the Missouri Department of Transportation for 43 years retiring as a statistician and planning supervisor in 1988.

He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Elks Lodge #513, the American Legion Roscoe Enloe Post 5 and The Jefferson City, MO Official Coffee Group whose slogan is “Do not bring it up if you know anything about it.”

Charlie had a passion for automobiles, always studying and researching them. He loved to help people find their perfect car. Anytime he got a new car, you could be sure it would be well photographed. He will always be known for taking meticulous care of his vehicles. People would line up for a “Charlie Johnson trade-in”. Charlie also enjoyed the casino and going to Las Vegas and Boonville with friends, coin collecting and was a long-time Friday afternoon card player. Every weekday morning, he could be found at McDonalds having coffee with his morning group and hoping to win the money.

Survivors include: his daughter, Crissy Wilson (Dexter) of Jefferson City; daughter-in-law, Gloria Johnson of Jefferson City; grandchildren, Andrew Johnson, Crystal Johnson and Rebecca Seward (Greg); great-grandchildren, Lilly, Gwen, Evie and Lucas Seward; niece, Ruthi Sturdevant (Craig) of Jefferson City; and nephews, Bob Swackhamer (Jean) and Tom Swackhamer (Debby).

He was preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife of 65 years, Eileen Johnson; son, Michael Johnson; sister, Mildred Swackhamer; and niece, Kathy Potter.

Visitation will be at Freeman Mortuary from 10:00 until 11:30 a.m. Monday, November 18, 2019. Funeral services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Monday in the Freeman Chapel. Graveside services will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Hospice Compassus.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
