Obituary

Neil Stanley Johnson of Danbury, formerly of Easton, Connecticut, passed away suddenly at Danbury Hospital on May 22, 2021, at age 59.  Neil graduated from Darien High School in 1980 and went on to Bucknell University.  He later received a Bachelor’s degree from Fairfield University.

Neil was an avid skier and a lifelong fan of the NY Mets.  He met his wife, Susanne Staples Johnson, through a skiing club and they were married on April 4, 1989.  Neil worked for many years at General Analysis Corporation, later Wilkes Enterprise, Inc., where he supervised the production and worldwide installation of infrared analyzers for biofuel, petrochemical, environmental, and manufacturing applications until the company was purchased and relocated by a larger organization. 

Neil volunteered as a coach for youth baseball, soccer, and basketball.  He also volunteered regularly with Helping Hands Outreach in Bridgeport, distributing meals to people in need. He received a commendation from Bridgeport’s Mayor Ganim for his volunteer work.

Neil was preceded in death by his father, Stanley, and his mother, Ruth.  He is survived by his wife Susanne, his daughter Sara Moffa and her spouse Austin, of Vienna, VA, his son Daniel Johnson, of Quincy, MA, his brother, Peter Johnson and his spouse Carolyn, of Yarmouth, ME, his brother Rick Johnson and his spouse Raffaele, of Seattle, WA, several nieces and nephews and many family relatives in Sweden.
