Leroy Charles "Dooley" Johnson II


Leroy Charles “Dooley” Johnson II, age 63, passed away October 22, 2023 in his home in Martin, MI. He was born December 11, 1959 in Terre Haute, IN to Janice and Leroy Johnson. Leroy later moved to Otsego, MI where he attended Otsego High School. He worked at Marshall Plastic, where he met his soon-to-be wife. Leroy married his best friend Susanna Shook, on June 17, 1978. Together for 45 years, they raised two daughters, Lacey (Troy) Simpson of Plainwell and Frankie (Kevin) McConnaughey of Martin and have six grandchildren: Logen Demink, Landen, Gunner, Tucker, Gideon Sims and Teagen Simpson. Leroy loved the title of Papa and was always doing something with his grandkids. From toodling around on the golf car to showing off the motorcycle, Leroy always had his dog or grandkid by his side. Those lucky enough to know Leroy say that once you met him, you instantly became his friend. He was so selfless, dropping what he was doing to come and help. In recent years, Leroy had been struggling with his health, but it had taken a downturn in recent months. His family was so hopeful he would see relief, but the pain grew to be too much for Leroy.  His family takes comfort in knowing that he is no longer in pain and is at peace. Leroy is survived by his wife Sue, their children and grandchildren, his sister: Robin (Steve) Folk, Dawn Raulston, Sherry (Dave) Meyer, Becky (Mike) Staley, Rena (Kenny) Burk, and Lorrie Johnson; brother, Bobby Johnson; brother-in-law, John Raulston; sister-in-law, Gloria (Alice) Shook; brothers-in-law, Tom (Meg) Shook, Max Shook, and John (Lori) Shook; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. Leroy is preceded in death by his parent, Janice and Leroy, and step-father, Richard Dooley; brother, Richie Dooley; sister, Barbie Hamilton; sister-in-law, Peggy Shook; father-in-law, Frank Shook, mother-in-law, Georgia Shook; and his dog Cookie.
