[Photo of Philip]
"London architect Philip Carter Johnson, 62, died Thursday in Tucson, Ariz.
One of his most noted accomplishments was the design of London City Hall and Centennial Hall in 1966.
He was the designer of many area churches and received a silver medal from the then governor-general, Vincent Massey, for his design of the Knox Presbyterian Church at Goderich in 1952.
He also designed the futuristic St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Church on Huron Street and the Beth Tefilah Synagogue on Adelaide Street.
Born in Regina, Mr. Johnson moved with his family to St. Thomas when he was about two. He later moved to Hamilton and graduated in economics from McMaster University, and came to London in 1946.
He is a graduate of architecture from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
After his retirement in 1972, Mr. Johnson took up water-color painting and writing and built a new home and studio-office on the Delaware-Westminster town line.
He died in a Tucson hospital after becoming ill while vacationing in Mexico.
He is survived by his wife, Helen, two sons in Toronto, Nick and Ian, and a daughter Mrs. Susan Jarmain in London.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, 1 p.m. at the Unitarian Fellowship, 29 Victoria St."
