It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of DANIEL R. JOHNSON, beloved husband of Janis Johnson, of Lethbridge, on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the age of 74 years.

Besides his loving wife Janis, Daniel will be remembered by his three children: Dona Johnson (Mark Tysowski) of Calgary, Chad (Anita) Johnson of Regina and Robert (Amy) Johnson of Regina; 19 grandchildren: Jack, Evan and Zoe Tysowski, Jessica (Josiah) Audette, Rebecca (Micaiah) Audette, Amanda, Julia, Erica, Maria, Daniel, Nathan, Joel and Johanna Johnson and Hannah, Emanuella, Eden, Laylah, Evangeline and Lydia Johnson; and three great-grandchildren: Chas, Raymond and Sabrina. He is also survived by his sister Eileen (Stan) Sundberg of Spearfish, South Dakota and Brian Johnson of Regina as well as several nieces and nephews, numerous cousins and more friends than we can mention.

Daniel was predeceased by his parents Sanford and Julia and brother Wesley.

Danny was born January 25, 1945 in Estevan, SK. He was raised on the family farm near Radville, SK. At the age of ten, his family moved to the current farm at Beaubier, SK, which he passionately took care of till the end.

Dan found Janis, the love of his life in 1966. It was clearly the most successful cold call of his life and he closed the deal in 1968. Dan went on to forge a very successful business and sales career, making so many friends along the way. He enjoyed playing sports, and cheered for the Yankees, Canadiens, and the Cowboys. But he cherished people the most; friends, family and especially all his grandchildren. But above all, he loved Jesus, his saviour, knowing with all certainty that he was going to meet Him and be reunited with his parents and little brother Wesley who he has waited so long to see.

A Funeral Service will be held at EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH OF LETHBRIDGE, 4717 – 24 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB, on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Dave Acree officiating. A Private family Interment will take place in Beaubier, SK at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, Dan would want you to help a child in need or donate to a children’s charity.
