Eric's dad at work in WWII munitions factory

"My heart is in the work."

This is a photograph of my Dad, Dennis C. Johnson, taken while he was working at Fort Mifflin during World War II. Pop taught me and my brothers, Dennis Jr. and Marvin, the value of hard word. 

Pop was also and exceptional story teller. Check out my blog page for periodic stories about Pop and others who enriched my life.

Oh! The quote is the motto of my alma mater - Carnegie Mellon University. Pop would have loved it.
