Lawrence L. “Larry” Johnson, 65, passed away Monday morning, Feb. 4, 2013, at Community Hospital South in Indianapolis.  He was a resident of Brown County and a former resident of Geneva on the Lake, Ohio.

He was a member of the Mt. Olive Church in Peoga and enjoyed working on the computer, listening to country music and traveling. Larry was known as a great cook and famous for his homemade Spanish rice and sushi. He also designed music CD covers.

He is survived by his father, Larne L. Johnson of Martinsville; wife, Jean Olds-Johnson of Brown County; and son, Anthony W. (Karen) Johnson of Indianapolis. He will be remembered by his siblings, Teresa Faye Davis of Whiteland, Steve Johnson of Spearsville and Michael Johnson of Ohio; nine grandchildren; and several great-grandchildren.

Larry was preceded in death by his mother; and a brother, Don Johnson.
