It is with much sadness that I pass on a Report from John Shorter that Captain Fredrick (Ricky) Michael Johnson RFA(Retd) crossed the bar on 24th September 2019 aged 81 after a long battle with cancer.

His funeral will take place at the Church of St John the Evangelist, South Place Lee on Solent at 10:00 on 15th October 2019 (HERE for there website and HERE for a map) followed by a private cremation. Colleagues and old shipmates will be made most welcome and invited to join the family afterwards for refreshments.

No flowers please but donations should be made in lieu, and if desired, to St Vincent de Paul, Lee on Solent Branch (Investigating) via the Funeral Directors, see above.

On behalf of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Lyn, children Maria, Marc and Thomas and grandchildren..

If you have any remembrances of Ricky please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page “RFA Crosed the Bar”. I am also looking for photographs of Ricky for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
