He was a retired diesel mechanic with Carlos Battastini Trucking, New Cumberland; an avid coin collector; and enjoyed “Road Trips”, especially when the destination was to visit family and friends. Marty became a simple man who loved the little things life had to offer.

He is survived by his fiancé Verna F. Campbell of Etters; children, Kyle Johnson of NC, Jack Johnson of NC; siblings, Brian Johnson and Cheryl Johnson, both of RI; Verna’s children, Matthew, Rachel, Mandy, Leigh Anne and Anthony, all from PA; her grandchildren and great grandchildren; and his canine companion “Buddy”.
In his younger years of life, Marty enjoyed life a bit too much and caused broken relationships and hardships. In his later years, he realized this hurt and tried to enjoy all that life had to offer and made the best of it.
