Theodore J. "The Swede" Johnson, 92, formerly of 8 Longfellow Ave., and Emery Towers, passed away Wednesday December 5, 2018, at the Bradford Ecumenical Home.

Born August 24, 1926, in Bradford, he was a son of the late Clarence T. and Gladys (Deloe) Johnson.

On April 9, 1948, in the First United Methodist Church he married his sweetheart Frances B. Bennett Johnson who preceded him in death on January 21, 1999.

Ted was known for his ease in frequent conversation, with even total strangers. Throughout his entire life, he possessed a contagious smile and an entertaining sense of humor.
