"ERICK H. JOHNSON, PIONEER RESIDENT OF HANCOCK, PASSES--Erick H. Johnson of Warren Street, a pioneer resident, passed away late Friday afternoon after a seven weeks illness. He was 90 [sic] years old. 

He was born in Sweden and came to the United States at the age of 18, living in Quincy and later in Hancock.

Mr. Johnson was well known in the community. He was janitor of the old school house at Quincy for a number of years, during the superintendency of the late J.G. Johnston, and was in the employ of the city of Hancock for 25 years. He was a member of the Franklin Street Apostolic Lutheran church.

Surviving are two grandchildren, Jane Johnson of Hancock and Lt. Edward E. Johnson of the Army Air Corps at Keary [sic], Neb.

Funeral services will be held at [?] o'clock Tuesday afternoon at the Franklin Street Apostolic Lutheran church, the Rev. Andrew Mickelsen officiating. Burial will be at the Lakeside cemetery.
