Norman E. Johnson: 1934-2018

Dec 26, 2018

Norm was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on July 6, 1934, and died Dec. 11, 2018.

He moved to Seattle when he visited his brother and found out he could water ski and snow ski in the same day.

He accepted Christ as his Savior as a teenager, and the family has the assurance from the scriptures of his being in heaven. Norm designed and help build two homes in Woodway, where he moved his wife Vivian, daughter Sue and son Dave in 1966.

He worked as a lithographer for over 30 years, and in “retirement” worked eight years at CRISTA Ministries. He drove cars for Campbell Motors and Lynnwood Honda all over Washington and Oregon.

Besides skiing, his hobbies were boating, model railroading, classic car shows and travel in the U.S. and abroad. He loved meeting relatives found in Sweden. He frequented many of the local restaurants, and was especially fond of Rusty Pelican for breakfast.

He was buried with military honors for his service in the Navy. It is “Goodbye for Now” for Vivian Johnson, his wife of almost 57 years, daughter Sue Kenyon, grandchildren Michael and Kaley Kenyon, great-grandson Jackson Kenyon, son Dave (Michelle) Johnson, and granddaughter Emma Johnson, as well as in-laws and nieces and nephews in other states.

A celebration of Norm’s life is at 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28th, at Schirmer Auditorium on the CRISTA Ministries main campus.
