Chuck Johnson, longtime professor of philosophy at Utah State (37 years), passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer. Many students reading this blog probably never got to meet Chuck as he has been out for some time now. But those that did know him will remember his excellent teaching, his kindness, patience, endlessly positive attitude and his good humor (He once remarked to me that he taught the whole history of philosophy in his courses – “both early and later Wittgenstein.”).
He will be missed by the many who loved him, and welcomed by The One who loves him most.
Feel free to share your Dr. Johnson stories here if you like. Services will be held Friday, 10am at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish (not the Newman Center by campus, but the main parish – go north from campus on 800E, the church is on your left just as you cross into Hyde Park).
