He owned and operated the Johnson Family Farm, which now serves as the home for Grace United Methodist Church, and was a member of the Manassas City School Board for over 25 years, where he also served as its chairman from 1975-1985, and again from 1995-2000. He was actively involved in the development of the Johnson Learning Center, and was one of the founders of the Prince William County Fair.

Besides his parents, Joe was preceded in death by his daughter, Carole Ann Johnson Martin and his granddaughter, Cher Johnson.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Gem Johnson; 3 sons, Sonny Johnson, Jimmy Johnson (Diane), Joe Johnson, Jr. (Carol); daughter, Terry Johnson Liesener; grandchildren, Austin, Joey, III, Ivy, Chelsea, Abbey, Katie and great-granddaughter, Caelynn.
