OBITUARY: The home of Paul Johnson, 50, himself the father of 10, was usually a sort of open house, because he always welcomed the friends of his children. It was a sort of standing joke among his four daughters that their boy friends would rather sit and talk with Mr. Johnson than the
girls. A resident of 4422 Norwaldo Ave., he died last night in St. Vincent's Hospital. A life resident of Indianapolis, with the exception of a few years at Seymour, Paul was the son of Elbert and Mary (Teuscher) Johnson.
Paul's father was a carpenter and the son hoped to follow in that trade. But jobs were hard to get, so the son took work as custodian at Shortridge High School and stayed 15 years. At Shortridge Paul's good humor and understanding of youth manifested themselves and he was a prime favorite with pupils and teachers. If he was ill they came to see him. It was "Hi, Rusty!" or "Hi, Sandy!" wherever he went. To the children visiting his home, to whom he was constantly friend and playmate, Mr. Johnson was "DAD" to all as well as to his own children. He could not stand
to see a tot cry over a broken toy and he has fixed many for them.
