An accomplished scientist as well as versed in the arts, Mr. Johnson appropriately wore the title “Renaissance man” among those who knew him. Articulate, sophisticated and possessing a wry wit, friends and family described a congenial spirit who cared for and enjoyed people, and never talked down to them.
