At his request, Henry M. Johnston's newspaper obituary identified him as a "seaman, entrepreneur, inventor, probationer and felon." Johnston, who battled the Internal Revenue Service for years in a business tax dispute in which he pleaded guilty to felony charges, died Jan. 10 in Lincoln, Maine. Johnston also wanted the words "probationer" and "felon" to appear on his gravestone. "We haven't decided yet whether to do it or not," son Daniel Johnston said. "But we probably will. He was very proud of the fact that he was a self-made man. To have the IRS come in and basically try to tear him Down, he wanted people to remember that."
