Mr. Charles William (Bill) Johnson of 1416 Emily Drive, Sevierville, Tenn. entered into rest on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 at the Pigeon Forge Care and Rehabilitation Center.
Mr. Johnson was born March 2, 1927 in Lakeland, Fla. He was the son of the late Robert Leo Johnson and Josephine (Josie) Marie Woodward Johnson Garvin and of the late (step parents) Marina Toole Johnson and Lee W. Garvin.
He was educated in the Aiken, S.C. public schools and attended Clemson University. After owning and operating Bill's Drive In for 15 years, Mr. Johnson was employed by Aiken County Roads & Bridges in S.C. in which he retired and moved to Sevierville, Tenn. There he founded the Smokey Mountain Golf Ball Company.
Mr. Johnson was married to Barbara Woodward Johnson (Lynn) and later to Marilyn Robertson Johnson. He is survived by one son, David Charles Johnson and three daughters, Janis Johnson Baughman of Aiken, S.C., Carolyn Johnson Runyon of Summerfield, N.C. and Patricia Ann Thornton of Walterboro, S.C.; one sister, Helen Johnson Crawford of Charlotte, N.C.; numerous nieces and cousins; six grand-children, three step grand-children and 14 great-grandchildren.
Bill was a wonderful, kind, caring man who never met a stranger. The only thing bigger than his sense of humor was his heart. In addition to his business abilities, he had developed his talents on the golf course to the fullest. He was much admired by his many friends as an example of overcoming physical deformities.
