Grover "Goobie" Johnson Jr.

April 29, 1962 — August 20, 2021

Grover Glenn "Goobie" Johnson, Jr, 59, of Statesville, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 20, 2021.

Goobie was born in Monmouth County, NJ on April 29, 1962 and was the son of the late Grover Johnson, Sr. and Laura Rochester Johnson.

Goobie was employed with Energy United as a propane service technician and he was of the Baptist faith.

Goobie was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed being outside with nature. Goobie especially enjoyed farming and working his land. He also had a passion for deer hunting and carp fishing, competing in carp tournaments with his nephews. He also had a special way of addressing problems; if its broke, cuss it!

In addition to his wife Cindy, Goobie is survived by one sister, Lisa Johnson (Gary Hamby), two nephews, Michael Weatherman (Kimberly), and Glenn Johnson along with two great-nephews, Hunter and Dakota Weatherman and one great-niece Peyton Weatherman.
