Clay Warner Johansson, 67 of Summerville, South Carolina, passed away on Saturday, June 24, 2023.
He was born on August 2, 1955 in Peterborough, New Hampshire, and was the son of Virginia Aho Johansson and Kenneth Johansson.
Clay was a strong Christian who wanted everyone to know the gospel of Jesus Christ. He liked nothing better than spending time with his daughters and his grandchildren-outings and trips as a family was the norm. He loved biking, fishing, and hunting, but long-distance biking topped the list. He rode 30-40 miles several times a week with his bike group and had just completed a 400 mile ride from Sarasota to Key West right before his diagnosis.
His long-standing career with Hunter Engineering started in 1987 as a Training Representative, first in Florida, then in South Carolina. His career continued in St. Louis, Missouri as an instructor before his semi-retirement in 2020, when he returned to South Carolina with his wife. He was enlisted to provide phone support for the Hunter Lab, and traveled to different areas for direct instruction of service technicians. Clay was meticulous in his preparations and his single goal was to help the technicians to the utmost degree. He will be missed by many.
Clay is preceded in death by his father Kenneth Johansson and son Aaron.
He is survived by his spouse Nancy Johansson, mother Virginia Johansson, daughters Megan Johansson, Kelsey Becerril, and Keely Hawkins. He is also survived by nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild
