NORTH ATTLEBORO – Kyle James Johnson, 19, of North Attleboro and beloved son of Jim and Sue (Burns) Johnson passed away Monday, April 2, 2018.
Kyle was born August 17, 1998 in Norwood and was a grandson of Nancy Burns of North Attleboro and Capt. George O. Johnson, USMC (Ret.) of North Attleboro.
Kyle was a lifelong resident of North Attleboro and a 2016 graduate of North Attleboro High School. He attended Keene State College in New Hampshire and was currently a special education major at Bridgewater State College.
He has worked at Hilliards Chocolate Store in Mansfield for the past four years; he had a devotion to special needs children, and he was a 5-year participant in the Best Pal’s organization at North Attleboro High School and Best Buddies at Bridgewater State. He also was a 2-year coordinator for the Special Olympics event at the Attleboro High School.
Kyle played North Attleboro Junior Football, Little North Attleboro League baseball and competed in both sports at North High as well as Track and Field.
Without a doubt, Kyle’s favorite moments in life were those spent simply hanging out with family and friends. Known for his contagious laugh, he was a ray of sunshine who always had a kind word and smile for everyone he encountered.
In addition to his parents and grandparents, two devoted sisters survive him: Katie and Lauren Johnson both of North Attleboro and dozens of loving uncles, aunts and cousins.
