Wesley Dale Johnson

April 14, 1927April 11, 2010

Wesley Dale Johnson, age 82, a retired 5-year resident of Fort Mohave, died Sunday, April 11, 2010, in Bullhead City, Ariz.

Wesley was born on April 14, 1927, in Rifle, Colo. In 1938, he moved from Colorado to Stockton, Calif., and worked in a box factory until he joined the U.S. Navy. In the Navy, he obtained some education and served in World War II and the Korean War.

After his service, Wesley became manager of the Lodi Winery in Lodi, Calif., and also served as a Trustee at Humphrey's College in Stockton, Calif.

Wesley's first marriage to Barbara Mauser of Stockton, Calif. was blessed with two adopted children, Deborah Charles and David Johnson.

Wesley's second marriage in 1985, was to Muriel Johnson. They owned a medical supply store "Valley Home Health Care Products," that they had to close in 1996 due to Wesley's ill health.

With Wesley's wonderful sense of humor, he was always joking. At family gatherings, everyone loved being around him especially children - his presence was a joy to all who knew him!

Wesley's first loves were family and faith, and he was always there for anyone who needed help.

Wesley will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Wesley was preceded in death by two sisters, Sevina Davidson and Mary Hammer and four brothers, Roy Johnson, Richard Johnson, Ray Johnson and Howard Johnson.

He is survived by his wife, Muriel Johnson of Fort Mohave; son, David Johnson of Stockton, Calif.; daughter, Deborah Charles of Gardnerville, Nev; five grandchildren; and two siblings, Edith Atherton and Rolland Johnson, both from Stockton, Calif.

A Memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, at Dimond and Sons Silver Bell Chapel, 2620 Silver Creek Rd. Bullhead City. Alan Jones will officiate.

Arrangements are under the care of Dimond & Sons Silver Bell Chapel, Bullhead City, Arizona.

There is so much that can be said about Wes, there are memories to share and stories to tell. For me Wes was the man that gave my mom the love and happiness she had been waiting a lifetime to find. As I watch him shower his unconditional love on my mom and her entire family, I couldn’t help to be grateful for his love. He had married into Muriel’s clan and we were to be a challenge of a lifetime. Wes embraced us and never faltered, he never failed to lend a hand, provide a joke or say a word or two that was just what was needed at that moment. He brought balance with his gentle and kind ways, provided a place for my family to feel safe. He taught me what unconditional love was, not in his words but in every action he took. I will never forget what Wes gave me. I only hope I can pass along his kindness to others in my life.

I will always think of Grandpa when I watch Tom and Jerry or any of the old western movies. I'll always remember cartoons on Saturday mornings with Grandpa and playing cards around the kitchen table. He was a good man who cared about me and my brothers. I love you Grandpa.

Wes was one of my "Uncies". Him and his brothers got the nickname when they came to visit my dad, Ray, in Alaska when I was only 1 or 2. Even though I dont remember that trip dad assured me that I loved all my Uncies. I only saw Wes a few times as I was growing up but the one thing I will remember him for was his last visit to Spokane. He and Aunt Muriel came to dad's memorial service which was kind enough but he let me "see" my dad one last time and I'll always be grateful for that. Even though they had spent most of their lives apart Uncle Wes was so much like my dad in his mannerisms and voice inflections that I felt dad was there too. Even the way he told his stories reminded me of dad and we all know how the Johnson brothers LOVED to tell a story :) Uncle Wes will be missed and my heart goes out to Muriel and the rest of his family.
