Harold Leander Johnson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 27, 1896
Grand Rapids
Kent County
Michigan, USA
Death: unknown

Son of Gustaf Johnson and Sarah (Johnson) Johnson. Husband of Elizabeth "Libby" Tuffs.

Harold's name was spelled "Harald" on his baptism records at the Bethlehem Swedish Lutheran Church, in Grand Rapids, MI. That spelling was a Swedish spelling, as his parents were native Swedes. But he was born an American, so he must be "Harold" now. C.J. and Mrs. Ida Holmberg were his sponsors (like God-parents) at his baptism.

Harold grew up with his mother and younger sister, since his father died when he was very young. Still, he was very smart and inventive.

As a young man, he was kept from serving in the war (WWI), because it would be a hardship to his widowed mother and sister. They needed him for financial support.

Harold married Elizabeth "Libby" Tuffs on the 10th of December, 1925, in Grand Rapids, MI. They were unable to have children of their own, but took in her orphaned nieces and nephews, so enjoyed a warm and loving family of their own.
