We are truly sorry for your loss. We would like to offer the Johnson family our deepest and most sincere condolences and may Mr. Johnson rest in the hands of the Lord.
I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. ~Leo Buscaglia

Dave was our first friend in El Paso.
Dan and I were transferred to El Paso in the early 1980's from Illinois-the very heart of the midwest. Dan met Dave through work and he quickly became our friend.
We knew nothing about the desert, the southwest, Mexico, really anything about our new home. Dave took us under his wing and we had a blast! He taught us how to shoot, how to two-step, what real chili is (not that midwest staple of kidney beans) and just really everything southwest. He loved El Paso.
In 1990 we were transferred out of El Paso and lost touch. Just the other day Dave popped into our conversation, out of the blue, and we very much enjoyed recalling our days with him. We ended our reminiscing with the hope that he was happy. Our internet searches have left us with the peace of mind that he was indeed, very happy and very much loved.
Our hearts are broken for all of you, his family and friends--and for us. May our God in heaven welcome this hero home. He will always be remembered with smiles here in Iowa. He touched us deeply.
With heartfelt sympathy,
Dan and Mary Ann Krammen
