He enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, and softball. His wife, Helen L. Myers Johnston, preceded him in death on March 2, 2015.

He is survived by his son, Barrett Johnston of Chambersburg; and four sisters, Dolores St. Clair (Harold), Peggy Shearer, Bonita Byers (William), and Constance Abbott, all of Chambersburg.
