Donald Ray Johnson



Donald Ray Johnson, age 85, of Marion, North Carolina passed away on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at Memorial Campus in Asheville. A native of Maryville, Tennessee, Don was born on October 29, 1935 to the late Nola Johnson.

He is preceded in death by his son, Paxton “Packy” Johnson and two grandchildren, Daniel Maynor and Erica Johnson Walker.

Don was the owner and auctioneer for the Tennessee-Carolina Auction Company for over fifty years. He enjoyed working with his livestock and watching his birds. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed listening to gospel music. Don was very well liked and respected, not only in the auction community but also around several states.

Don is survived by his wife of sixty-four years, Sue Law Johnson; four children, Randy Johnson (Revonda), Carolyn Carver (Mike), Lloyd Johnson (Helen) and Donald Johnson (Dawn). Also surviving Don are nine grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren and his canine companion, “Peanut”.
