Harvey Johnson spent 30 years with the Burlingame Fire Department and rose to the rank of assistant chief. He loved the outdoors, fishing, playing cards and working with his hands and passed these hobbies onto his four sons – two of whom are serving in the fire service. Harvey was a Mason and a Shriner and spent much time entertaining children at the San Francisco Children’s Hospital as part of the Shrine Clown Unit. His life was cut short by a heart attack at the age of 53.
