The death occurred suddenly in Wellington last week of Mr Arthur Linford Johnson, who was well known in business and sporting circles.
Mr Johnson, who was born in Wellington 69 years ago, was for many years associated with the brick and pipe industry, being managing director of Herbert Hill and Co. Limited. As a sportsman Mr Johnson was greatly interested in trotting. He was a vice president of the Wellington Trotting Club, of which he had been a member since its inception in 1917. Among the horses which ran under his colours were Holly Boy, Logan Park, Morrison, and Pageant. He was also a member of the Wellington Racing Club. In his younger days Mr Johnson was an oarsman, being a member of the Star Boating Club. A skilful bowler, he was for many years a highly popular member of the Wellington Bowling Club. Golf also claimed his enthusiastic interest, and he was one of the best-known members of the Miramar Golf Club. He was a member of the Masonic Fraternity, having been initiated in New Zealand Pacific Lodge No.2 in 1911, and he joined Brooklyn Royal Arch Chapter No.24 in 1913. Held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends, Mr Johnson's genial personality made him a popular figure amongst the members of the Central Club, the Wellington Commercial Travellers Club, the Savage Club, and the Masonic Club (Auckland).
Mr Johnson married Ann, the eldest daughter of the late Mr Herbert Hill, of Wellington, and he is survived by Mrs Johnson, a daughter, Miss Alice Johnson, and four sons, Messrs. Lionel, Cyril, Leslie, and Cliff Johnson.
