1948 ~ 2004

On Wednesday October 13, 2004, John Johnson passed from this life at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, after a sudden onset of Meningitis. His family felt it a great blessing and comfort to be able to spend his last hours with him.

He is survived by his wife Becky. One daughter Jennifer (Kirk) Hamilton, and five sons, Shane R, Quinn S. (Tennille), Lance B. (Tammy), Jeremy S. (Fiance Stephany Fellows) and Landen H. Johnson; his grandchildren: Andrew, Alexis, Kaci, Konor and Paityn Hamilton, Tyler Johnson and two more joining us in the next few weeks. John is also survived by his brothers: S. Garth Johnson (Geraldine), Calvin H. Johnson (VonDella), and older sister Lois Atkinson (Brenton), his mother and father-in-law Robert G. and Virginia Harris, many nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law that were very dear to him. He was preceded in death by his son John Tyler Johnson and his parents Samuel and Venna Johnson.

The family would like to express appreciation to Dr. Glenn O. Mortensen who is not only the family doctor but a very special friend, also to the many Doctors, nurses and staff that cared for John so compassionately at Logan Regional and LDS Hospitals.

In lieu of flowers John would prefer that you help bring happiness to a child by making a donation to the "Make-A-Wish Foundation" of Utah by calling 262-Wish.
