Carl Michael Johnson

Carl Michael Johnson lived a life of love.

Born April 15th 1949, he succumbed to the effect of heart disease, August 29th 2018. Carl was preceded in death by his mother Fanny and father Ronald. He is survived by two siblings, Linda and Ronald; the love of his life, Kathryn, two sons Michael (Tess), Brian (Sara) and his four grandchildren, Andrew, Isabella, Sophia and Julianna.

Carl was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandpa, uncle, and friend to all those that knew him. Carl had a passion for life and an even greater passion for his family.

Professionally, Carl excelled in the aerospace industry where he was a machinist for over 40 years. He moved his family to Washington State in 1979, where he raised his family.

He was a man of modest means, but not of modest heart. He had a love of woodworking and was a master tinkerer. He was a master of sayings and a hero to his family.

Carl will be missed on this earth, but will continue to be an inspiration to all that knew him.

We are so thankful to have been part of Carl’s life. He was such a gentle and caring person. There was never a time we asked for his help that he did not readily give it. He and Kathy have been a wonderful couple and a great example of love and devotion to one another. We will miss Carl’s kind smile and his gentle laugh. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathy, Mike, Brian and their families. Thanks for sharing Carl with us!
