It is with deep sorrow and regret that Linda Day, President of the Maryland Classified Employees Association (MCEA) must announce the passing of Byron J. Johnson (BJ). Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, friends and union brothers and sisters. 

BJ worked for the Carroll County Government where he served as a Roads Inspector. Shortly after BJ's membership to the MCEA in 1992 he assumed  an active role as a leader of MCEA's Chapter #550. He eagerly performed many duties and responsibilities within his Chapter where he served as Treasurer, Vice President and ultimately was elected Chapter
