Obituary


Neil Robert Johnsen

Neil Robert Johnsen, 63, of Arlington, WA died January 26, 2011 due to complications of a heart attack that occurred six weeks earlier on December 16, 2010.
Neil was born on August 04, 1947 in Everett, Washington.
Neil was a Washington State native and lived for most of his life in the Everett and Arlington vicinity. Neil also lived in the Spokane area for a short time from 1974 to 1982.
Neil graduated from Everett High School in 1965. Neil met the love of his life, Celia, shortly after. They married in 1971 and had their one and only child, Ryan, in 1974.
Neil excelled in everything that he did. He volunteered as a firefighter early in his life and then worked in sales, construction, and then transitioned to the Information Technology (IT) field after earning an Associate of Science Degree from Everett Business College. He was employed by Bayliner Marine, located near the Arlington Airport, where he worked as the Telecommunications Manager from 1987 to 1999. After being laid off from Bayliner, Neil immediately obtained employment at Lowe's Home Improvement, in Smokey Point, WA where he worked until his retirement in 2005.
Neil was an avid outdoors man and loved his family. He will always be remembered for his booming voice, laugh, and love for people. Neil was very dearly loved and he will be sorely missed.
Neil is survived by his wife, Celia Johnsen; his son, Ryan and his wife, Melissa; and three grandchildren, Jordyn, Christian, and Gabriel; as well as his brother, Dan.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Christian and Andrea Johnsen.
