David Allan Johnson
September 22, 1928 – January 23, 2015
Al Johnson passed away in Grand Forks, B.C, at 86 years young of natural causes. Born and raised in Rosemont, Quebec where he met and married the love of his life Ruth Thomson (1927- 2003). They had four amazing gifted and talented daughters (lol) who loved and adored them both. He moved the family to Vancouver, B.C. in 1976 after a five year pit stop in Mississauga, Ont. He moved to Grand Forks in 2012 a place he discovered and fell in love with on one of his RV trips. He will sadly be missed by daughters – Karen, Debbie (Claudio), Nancy, Patti (Bruce), grandchildren Melanie, Tony (Dee), Kelly and great-grandson James and six granddogs and six great-granddogs. He had a passion for RV travelling, woodworking, home renovations and good food. Though he lived in a world of silence he treated the world like they were the ones who were hard of hearing. His boisterous laughter and teasing manner will be greatly missed by all. Thank you to all the staff at Ivy House for your loving care and support. No service by Al’s request, instead have an ice cream or a Scotch in his honour.
