Terrance Lee Johnson 53, took his final ride on his motorcycle at 5:37 AM Sunday, April 25, 2021, with loved ones gathered around, from his home in Salem.
Terry was currently employed at Whan Inc. in Leetonia where he was a diesel mechanic as well as a part time driver. A 1986 graduate of Salem Senior High School and attended vocational school in Alliance for diesel mechanic training. Terry also went on to get millwright certification and numerous other work related schooling. The opportunity was made available that he attended bar tending school. In the late 80’s, he served in the US Marine Corp.
Terry was always busy working, spending time with his family or out with friends. The circle of his cherished friends never ended and grew larger every year. It is true that he was a bit stubborn and bull headed at times, but could turn and show a joking and loving personality also. He was the kind of person who would give the shirt off his back to help anyone in need.
One of the biggest things he enjoyed was his motorcycles. He loved them so much, he joined the Ohio Valley BSA Owners Club (a British motorcycle enthusiasts group) in Toronto, Ohio. It was not uncommon to stop by his house, hear the music playing while wrenching on the bikes or one of the cars. There were those quiet times where he enjoyed reading, spending quality time with his family, or watching a good movie.
Terry is survived by his caring parents: James “Jim” G. and Carol L. (Fisher) Johnson Jr. of Salem, the love of his life, Lori (Baddley) Johnson whom he married on July 14, 2006, a daughter Brooke E. Hughes of Salem and his sister Lauri Wymer of Lisbon, a special close friend, Mike Fromm as well as extended family and a host of loving and caring friends.
Terry made it very clear that he did not want to have a funeral service or any kind of viewing.
The family has entrusted the arrangements into the care of the Arbaugh-Pearce-Greenisen & Sons Funeral and Cremation Services, Salem.
