Michael Leon Johnson, son of Gwendolyn Johnson and Donald Wortham, was born on April 7th 1984 in Trenton, NJ. Michael was called to be with the Lord on Friday, September 3, 2021.
Mike, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, spent his life in Trenton, NJ where he was educated in the Trenton Public Schools system.
Michael was employed for numerous warehouse companies throughout the cities of Trenton and Florence, NJ.
Michael had such a genuine and laid back personality. He was a loving, caring and family-oriented guy. Mike always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. He enjoyed making people laugh.
Michael's favorite pastimes consisted of fishing with his family, playing his video games, cookouts in the backyard, and most importantly, listening to his radio. As anyone who knew Mike can attest, he had a special love for music. As a child he enjoyed playing football and basketball with his friends, but his radio was his true best friend. Mike took his radio everywhere.
