It was strange how I stumbled on this site today. I am very sorry to the Johnson family for losing Don last year. I knew him for a short time and I can say he was a really nice man and I was very fond of him. Those of you he left behind take care, and hold in your hearts that you will see him again some day. - Chris

Carrie, Being way out in Denver, CO, for roughly the past 50 years, unfortunately Judy & I didn't have a chance to get to know Don. Knowing you, however, we are absolutely certain that he was a thoughtful and loving husband and gentle and nurturing father. As such we are sure that God will hold him gently in the cup of his hands for all of eternity. Fear not, he will be waiting for you on the other side! ... Ray & Judy Rosich

Hey Don, We sure had some great times together. The boat trip across Florida was one of the best. And how about the time a few of us guys took a ride and ended up stopping in at a motorcycle dealership. Much to our surprise, you bought that Yamaha. We really did have some good rides together for a couple of old fogey's. You then graduated to the 4 wheel ATV world and left me in the dust. Just so you know, I'm still wearing several of the T-shirts you sold to me at your garage sale. I'm sure I paid too much for them. We miss ya, man. See ya up there!

I have traveled many places in my 43 years and met many people. I can honestly say that Don was one of the nicest people I have ever been around. Losing my Dad at a young age, it was so nice to be able to look up to Don and see how he treated people and how he handled situations with such class and common sense. I will use what I learned from Don to always try and be a better man, and especially to try and teach my son the same. RIP my friend.
