What Do You Need to Know About Eddie Johnson? (In Their Own Words)

Relocated from MI.  Had 2 friends in college who lived in NC. They wanted me to visit them & we went to Bald Head Island & the mountains.  Loved the state and decided to relocate, knowing only those 2 people in NC. Started my career in the greatest industry (insurance) in possibly the most difficult manner, literally not knowing anything about Greensboro, no contacts to draw upon and knew absolutely nothing about insurance!

My first day here was like heaven as it snowed and I could sweep it off the porch with a broom, instead of a shovel!  Loves boating, fishing and being in the woods.  Nature teaches us many things if we pay attention and listen.  Education has many forms and when you stop learning, you start dying.

Has visited 41 states in the US and travelled in Canada and the Caribbean.  Drank beer with Judge Wapner of the TV show “Peoples Court” in Barbados and almost missed the cruise ship because taxi drivers were arguing over who was taking us back to the ship for departure. We were 21 years of age!

How Eddie Johnson Wants To Be Remembered

By All: Dependable, fair, and honest.  Helps others quietly without others knowing and expecting nothing in return.  Loves the outdoors and the resources it shares with us.  Takes as much time as needed in helping clients understand their policies to make sure they are protected in the best possible way, even if means delivering unpleasant news.  Honesty keeps one out of trouble.

By Wife: Was respected, a good man and was there for her in times of crisis.  “A Keeper!”

By Parents: He made us proud.  There are no road maps in raising a child, but our guidance and encouragement steered him in the right path.  He knew right from wrong.  He served others.  He made us smile and we loved his short “one-liners!”

By Friends: He cherished life, particularly the joy of companionship whether on the water or in the serene beauty of remote wilderness. He didn’t tolerate any nonsense, and if you were his friend, he’d go above and beyond for you and your loved ones. During our late teens and early twenties, we embraced life to the fullest, working diligently and enjoying ourselves even more passionately. He took on any task that needed doing, capturing memories through photography and preserving our cherished moments, ensuring they wouldn’t fade into oblivion without those precious photos.
