James "Josh" C. Johnson IV

May 5, 1958 — March 4, 2023


James C. “Josh” Johnson, IV, age 64, died suddenly on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at his beloved family farm in Linkwood, Maryland.

Josh was born on May 5, 1958, in Annapolis, Maryland, the son of James C. and Sandra J. Johnson of Cambridge, Maryland.

Josh graduated from Queen Anne’s County High School Class of 1976. After graduating from Davis & Elkins College, he began his career in the insurance industry. In 1995 he and a partner acquired Bartlett, Griffin & Vermilye Insurance in Easton, Maryland. In 2019 BGV was acquired by the Fleetwood Insurance Group, a subsidiary of The Peoples Bank. He remained with the company until his passing.

Josh had a passion for enjoying life to the fullest. Time spent with family, friends, coworkers, and his clients were the things that brought him his greatest joy. I’m sure many happy stories and memories will be shared for years to come among the many people whose lives he touched.

In addition to his parents, Josh is survived by his wife, Cindy Ringgold Johnson, son James Matthew Johnson and wife, Ornella, daughter Jennifer and husband, Chuck Baines; their unborn twin sons, sister Kimberly Blair; stepson Jason White and wife Shana; their daughters Madalyn and Arabella and stepdaughter Julie White.

Burial will be private. A Celebration of Life for Josh will be held Saturday, April 1st from 2 to 4 pm at the Banquet Facility behind Suicide Bridge Restaurant, 6304 Suicide Bridge Road, Hurlock, Maryland.
