Ronald Dee Johnson
1947 ~ 2021
My journey has ended. In a way, I am relieved. I had a great run, to be honest. I was lucky to get added time thanks to the IHC Transplant Center. Thanks to my wonderful wife and best friend Becky, for all the great years we spent together. I will miss you, my love.
I was preceded in death by my father Ted and mother Ina. My dad was truly one of the great guys in life. I was fortunate to have two wonderful children; Ronnie and Amy and stepdaughter Carly. Becky and I were blessed with five delightful grandchildren; Jada (Grant), Addie, Dane, Julian, and Vivienne. I was also blessed with my daughter-in-law Nikki, sons-in-law Troy and Casey. All upstanding people and I enjoyed all of you. I have one brother Ted (Claudia) and sister Pam (Eric), as well as Becky's brother Randy and partner Amy.
I want to thank all the people at the IHC Heart Transplant Center for allowing me 18 more years of life. I would like to thank Dr. Rami Alharethi for everything over and above that you did for me, plus being a good friend. I also want to thank Elder Dale Renlund (retired cardiologist), who was nothing but fantastic while treating me. I would like to thank Sally Brush, Kismet Rasmussen and Stacey Frampton for all your help with my journey. There will be a private graveside service.
