April 20, 1946 – January 6, 2017

With his family by his side, Alan David Johnson, was taken to his heavenly home on the evening of January 6, 2017.

Alan is predeceased by his parents, John and Anna Johnson; his brother, Gordon Johnson; and his granddaughter, Kylie Dosko.

Alan is survived by his wife and sweetheart of 50 years, Glenda; his children: Alanet (Ray) Clayton, Audrey (Kent) Pickett, Rae Johnson, Amber (Keith) Dosko, Annetta (Jason) Labash, Andrea (Kurtis) Stinson, and Ailyn (Matthew) Clayton; his grandchildren: Kayla (Braden) Baker, Tyson Boehmer; Amanda and Jessica Warner; Sariah, Cassandra, and Joshua Dosko; Taylor, Paityn, and Bretton Labash; Zander and Maraya Stinson; Bayly, Anna-Marie, Mason, and Ryder Clayton; and three great grandchildren, Scotlyn and Kennedy Baker, and Jax Friess.

Alan retired at the age of 63, after a 25-year career with the Coop Oil Refinery in Regina, Saskatchewan. In 2014, Alan and Glenda moved to Medicine Hat, Alberta and purchased their retirement home.

Alan’s greatest joys in life were his family, the gospel, and serving in the church. He was always there to help anyone in need and has touched the lives of numerous individuals with his humble service.

He took great pride in his gardening and loved to share the fruits of his labours with those around him. His family never left his house empty handed. He also enjoyed preparing feasts for his family and friends and will always be remembered for his famous fried chicken and fantastic holiday dinners.

Alan will be greatly missed by all who knew him, especially his family and friends. His family takes great comfort in knowing that they will one day be reunited with him, and until that day, he will be watching over them.
