Greg L. Johnson

Des Moines

Gregory L. Johnson died with loved ones surrounding him on February 22, 2014 from complications of pneumonia at Taylor House Hospice in Des Moines, IA. Funeral Services will be 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 26 at Iles Grandview Park Funeral Home. Burial will be at Laurel Hill Cemetery, Des Moines.

Greg was the best part of our family; he was always telling stories, making people laugh, and smoking meat to make sure everyone was fed and full. He was so very charming and loved to be around his Family and Friends. He never knew a stranger, always made a friend.

XOXOXO until we meet again Husband, Daddy, Son, Brother, Grandpa, and Friend.

Greg is survived by his loving wife, Denise; daughters, Sheliah (Kyle) Gale, Ankeny, IA, and Braedi Schaefer, Des Moines; mother, Betty Hollingsworth, Des Moines, brother, Dennis (Marvella) Johnson, Madrid, IA; sister, Barbara (John) Adams, Alamogordo, NM; granddaughters, Breann, Mackenzie, Harlow and Grayson; and five great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father, William Johnson; brother, Bernard, and step-father, Dean Hollingsworth.

Contributions can be made to the family for a memorial piece to be established by the family at a later date.

And in the words that he always said to us and now is telling everyone in Heaven "That'd be alright"
