OBIT JohnsonMatthew

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Matthew G. Johnson Sr., passed away surrounded by his loving family on June 4, 2021, at Saratoga Hospital. 

Born on Oct. 16, 1930, in Saratoga Springs, he was the son of the late J. Moylan and Marion (Elliott) Johnson. He is predeceased by two sisters, Marion Mochon and Joan (Victor) Gomez. He is survived by his beloved wife of almost 65 years Earline K. Britton, his four children, Kathleen (Thomas) Cosmus, Maureen (Fred) Lynch, Matthew G. (Bernadette) Johnson, Jr. and Kevin (Renee) Johnson and seven grandchildren, Meghan Lynch, Michael, Joshua, Emily, Shannon, Kyle and Zacharey Johnson. Matt was also survived by several nieces and nephews.

Matt was a 1950 graduate of Saratoga Springs HS. He enlisted in the US Coast Guard and was honorably discharged in 1954. As family and faith always remained at the forefront of his life, he was a devout Catholic and a parishioner of St. Clement’s Church. Along with his wife Earline, they enjoyed many vacations together, including car meets in Hershey, PA, vacations to Aruba, Hawaii, Ireland and cruises in the southern Caribbean. 

The family is grateful to the dedicated and compassionate staff at Saratoga Hospital, especially Dr. Madigan and the nursing staff on D-1. We would also like to thank the staff at DCI for the care provided over the years.

Calling hours are 10:30am to 12:30pm Friday, June 11, 2021, at St. Clement’s Roman Catholic Church, 231 Lake Avenue, Saratoga Springs. Mass of Christian Burial will follow in the church at 1pm, followed by burial in the family plot at St. Peter’s Cemetery, West Ave.

Because of Covid restrictions, please no flowers, memorials may be made in his name to Catholic Charities of Warren, Washington and Saratoga Counties, 142 Regent St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
