John Russell Johnson, beloved son, devoted husband and loyal friend passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at the age of 31.
John was born to Don and Shelda (Shoultz) Johnson on October 27, 1983 in Redfield, SD. He graduated from Redfield High School in 2002 and attended Northern State University.
John was a talented salesman and passionate about the industry he worked. While early in his career, he took a post in Fargo, and quickly made it his home. He established business colleagues and long time friends across the greater Midwest selling for a myriad of wholesalers and distributors.
John married his best friend and partner, Laura, on October 7, 2011. Together they built a family, home, and established lifelong friends. The two adopted Caddy, a small puppy, in August 2013.
John was an avid golfer, fisherman, and hunter. He enjoyed swinging his clubs with the ‘old men’s’ golf group, weekend rounds with his best friends, and invites into the many tournaments during the summers. He would travel every fall to his home in Redfield to hunt with friends. John also spent much time on the water trying to pull his catch of the day.
John was preceded by his father, Don Johnson; grandparents; uncles; aunts; and cousin, Aaron.
He is survived by his wife, Laura Johnson (Fargo, ND); mother, Shelda Johnson (Redfield, SD); siblings, Brian Johnson (Alexandria, MN), David Johnson (Portland, ME), Clara Anne McFarland (Portland, OR), Susan Evans (Portland, OR) and Jennifer Eggars (Walla Walla, WA); seven beloved nephews; and many cousins and friends.
