To all of Algar’s family,
Sorry to have learned of his passing. We send our deepest sympathies to All of You. There was never a time when he drove past our home that he didn’t wave if he saw us, nor a time when he saw you that he didn’t say “hi”. Thinking of you all now and in the days ahead.
I am so sorry to hear about Algar’s passing. My condolences to the Johnson family.
My sincere condolences to the entire family. I spent a fair share of good times in the Johnson house during my highschool years and Algie seemed like he was such a kind, gentle, quiet man. May he rest in peace.

To all of Algar’s family:
So very sorry to hear of Algar’s passing. While dad, (Edson Johnson) was in QGH, Algar visited him there and they spent quite a number of hours reminiscing about bygone days and family history. It gave dad some happy hours with him as they laughed together at the memories they shared. I met Algar at dad’s service and we had some time together then.
My condolences to all of Algar’s family at this very sad time.
This is so very sharking so sad will remember u algar of all the chats and laughs . RIP never knew u was sick thinking of all the family at this sad time
