William John Johns 3/5/1917-9/26/2016 passed away at Remington House, just a few months shy of his goal to reach 100. The rest of his life, however, was filled with many goals met and exceed.

He worked at the Pentagon and retired from the Government Service Agency after helping computerize many European countries' postal and census bureaus. He started and eventually sold a computer data company, and came back to work for the government to computerize the Postal Data Center in Atlanta. He was married to his wife, Virginia, for 59 years and they had two sons, Bob and Bill. He is survived by those sons, a daughter-in-law Stephanie, and three grandchildren, Brynn, Noah and Sam.

    Knowing Bill Johns was a delight. He was our neighbor and friend for the past 42 years. He and his wife left a legacy of two fine sons and many happy memories for many people. I am blessed to be one of those people.
