CANAL WINCHESTER: Brock "B-Rock, Ones, Bigs, Small But Mighty, Medium, Brockoli Sprout, Ironman" Dalen Johnson, 14, of Canal Winchester, rounded third and headed for home on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.
Born on October 19, 2000, Brock will be remembered as the most positive person, no matter the circumstance. He was known for his contagious laugh and a smile that would light up a room. Brock was caring and competitive at the same time, which was always on display when he was playing sports. Whether it was soccer, basketball, football, or his favorite sport, baseball, Brock never met a teammate or opponent that he didn't like. He played baseball for the Eastside Irish Baseball team for 6 years, which is where he learned to love the color green. Brock was a coach of the Canal Winchester High School Football Team and an honorary team captain of both the Baseball and Basketball teams. He was also an avid Buckeyes and Reds fan.
Brock and his family attend Sycamore Creek Church, where he served in the children's ministry. He was also a proud member of Similar But Different and FCCLA at his school. Brock touched the lives of many, from Canal Winchester to Hollywood.
Brock is survived by his parents, Terry and Kristi Johnson; brother, Tucker Johnson; grandparents, Dave and Pauline Johnson and Dale Skilling; aunts, Wendi (Randy) Bradley, Sussetti (Brett) Bedell, and Mary Ann (Clint) Lingel; cousins, Bryan Hardy, Stephanie Gardner, Brad Bradley, Brady Bradley, Brandon Bedell, Breanna Colvin, Brice Bradley, Sarah Bedell, Hayden Lingel, and Harrison Lingel.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Pamela Skilling.
A celebration of Brock's life will be held at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 24th at the Canal Winchester High School Football Field, 300 Washington St., Canal Winchester, OH 43110, with Pastor Steve Markle officiating. Arrangements by the DWAYNE R. SPENCE FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORY, 650 W. Waterloo St., Canal Winchester, OH 43110.
In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations be made in Brock's memory to Sycamore Creek Church, 8100 Refugee Rd., Pickerington, OH 43147.
A special thank you to the staff at Nationwide Children's Hospital for the care and compassion they gave to Brock over the years and the Canal Winchester community for the amazing support.
