He was the son of the late Alfred and Lillian (Babineau) Johnson. Kenneth was predeceased by his beloved son Kevin; his sister, Linda Johnson of Saint John; and his brother, Lloyd of St. Louis. Kenneth is survived by his wife, Vianna (LeBlanc); his daughter, Lynne; his future son-in-law, Gerald Gallant of Moncton; two sisters, Lorna Johnson of Saint John, Letha Dugay (Maurice) of Caraquet; three brothers, Ernie (Germaine) of Dieppe, Earl (Judy) of Petit Rocher and Elmer (Diane) of Rexton.

Kenneth was an active member of the Richibucto Lions Club, the Richibucto Marina and was President of the St. Louis Co-op Board of Directors. Throughout his life, he proudly served on many committees such as President of the "Federation des Caisses Populaires Acadiennes", "Retrouvaille Acadienne", the Provincial and Federal Liberal Association and numerous other committees. Not only was he committed to his community and his heritage, Kenneth was a dedicated, devoted and loving husband, father, brother and a true friend. He was a man of many strengths, who loved boating, playing cards, strumming his guitar, but mostly he loved to laugh and make others laugh. There are no words that can describe the "greatness" of this man. His strengths, his love, his laugh and his presence will be greatly missed.
