Scot was a loving man with an infectious Johnson sense of humor. He will be sadly missed by so many.

A special thank you to Lisa. J. Jones for not only being Scot’s best friend but being there for him through all the years and sharing some of his best memories. Thank you for loving and caring for him through all that he had to endure.

The family would like to acknowledge Dr. Paul F Castellanos whose outstanding dedication to his patients never cease to amaze us. Your knowledge and expertise in your field prolonged our father’s life for a year. There was one last camping trip with his family that we would have not been able to experience without you. For all that you did for Dad we will be eternally grateful. Also thank you for standing by an oath you took as a doctor/surgeon who cares for his patients as well as their families.

A celebration of life will be planned for Scot alongside his father Robert Johnson at the farm in 2020. Info will be listed at a later date.

In loving memory of Scot there will be a memorial raffle for an Ice shack built at the  Johnsons’ saw mill by his children. Winner of Scots Ice shack will be drawn at the annual ice fishing derby at Lake George in Canaan Maine. Please contact Jessica @ (207) 679-7283 on the raffle ticket purchase locations.
