Mike married Jonna Whipple in 1968 and later that year the couple moved to Norman, OK for Mike to pursue an MBA at the University of Oklahoma. The couple lived in Norman for almost 50 years, and during that time Mike had a long career with the US Postal Service at the Oklahoma City airport location. Mike was an avid reader, loved to work in his beautiful flower gardens, and enjoyed writing to his friends and family. In addition, he and Jonna attended the First Christian Church regularly. However, the true focus of his life was his beloved wife Jonna. Their marriage of almost 50 years ended with her passing on Valentines Day, 2018. Mike noted in his writing that 2018 was the saddest year of his life after losing her.
In addition to his wife, Jonna, Mike was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Elsie Johnson, and a brother James Murray (Joe) Johnson. Mike is survived by his sister Nancy (Johnson) Granum and husband Michael Granum of Punta Gorda, FL.
