Larry D. Johnson

February 11, 1962 — December 25, 2022

Larry D. Johnson, 60, of Wausau, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, December 25, 2022. 

 

 

Larry was born on February 11, 1962, to David and Gertrude Johnson in Merrill, WI. He was baptized at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Merrill. The Johnson family moved to Wausau in 1965. Larry was confirmed at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church and was a 1980 graduate of Wausau West. Larry was united in marriage to Terri Marschall at Trinity Lutheran Church in Wausau on July 26, 1986.  

 

Larry entered the apprenticeship program and became a journeyman Sheet Metal Worker in 1990. He worked for the union until his retirement in 2014. He was a volunteer firefighter for the Village of Maine for 25 years.  

 

Larry and his wife purchased his parents’ home in the Village of Maine where they raised their two children. He enjoyed four-wheeler rides in the woods with his dog, Gracie, summers spent camping, and making maple syrup in the spring with family and friends. He was an avid Green Bay Packer fan and enjoyed watching Gunsmoke and Bonanza reruns. Larry was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who supported his family any way he could. If family or friends needed something, he was always the first one there and willing to help.  

 

He is survived by his wife, Terri; children, Mitchel (Mackenzie) Johnson, Madeline (Brandon) Smith; grandchildren, Myles and Maizy Johnson and Lincoln Smith; parents, David and Gertrude Johnson; sister, Debra (Robert) Thompson; mother-in-law, Helen Marschall; dog, Gracie and extended family and friends.
