In Memoriam of Dr. Fred Johnson
Dr. Fred Johnson went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. He was known as an enthusiastic coach and passionate teacher with a zeal for life throughout his service to the Lord at Pensacola Christian College and Pensacola Christian Academy.
An alumnus of Pensacola Christian College, Dr. Johnson taught physical education and sport management courses at PCC for 27 years. For many of those years, he also coached at Pensacola Christian Academy in basketball, cross country, and track. In the summertime, he served as the director of Camp o’ the Pines for 16 years, doing so with a passion to see souls saved and encourage spiritual growth. In 2016, he lived his dream by becoming head coach of the PCC Eagles soccer team for its inaugural year and received the 2016 NCCAA II Coach of the Year Award. He was well loved and respected by his team. The PCC family will greatly miss him, and our prayers are with his wife, Michelle, and children Jared, Kody, Erika, and Kenzie.
The funeral service will be held at the Dale Horton Auditorium on Tuesday, December 6, at 7 p.m. The family will receive friends beginning at 5 p.m.
