Mr Johan Charles Asplund, 23, was born on 31 January, 1889. He came from Oscarshamn, Småland, Sweden and was travelling to join his brother Fred Asplund in Minneapolis. He boarded the Titanic at Southampton.

Johan Asplund travelled together with Einar Karlsson also from Oscarshamn. The two men were rescued on lifeboat 13.

According to one list he was on his way to a friend, Mrs A Engström, 212 53d St. New York, but probably he was on his way to his brother because, after his rescue, he received $25 and a ticket to Minneapolis from the Salvation Army in New York. He later returned to Sweden in 1923 and died in Oscarshamn on 14 August, 1943.
