Ronald Dee Johnson

1947 ~ 2021

My journey has ended. In a way, I am relieved. I had a great run, to be honest. I was lucky to get added time thanks to the IHC Transplant Center. Thanks to my wonderful wife and best friend Becky, for all the great years we spent together. I will miss you, my love.
I was preceded in death by my father Ted and mother Ina. My dad was truly one of the great guys in life. I was fortunate to have two wonderful children; Ronnie and Amy and stepdaughter Carly. Becky and I were blessed with five delightful grandchildren; Jada (Grant), Addie, Dane, Julian, and Vivienne. I was also blessed with my daughter-in-law Nikki, sons-in-law Troy and Casey. All upstanding people and I enjoyed all of you. I have one brother Ted (Claudia) and sister Pam (Eric), as well as Becky’s brother Randy and partner Amy.
I want to thank all the people at the IHC Heart Transplant Center for allowing me 18 more years of life. I would like to thank Dr. Rami Alharethi for everything over and above that you did for me, plus being a good friend. I also want to thank Elder Dale Renlund (retired cardiologist), who was nothing but fantastic while treating me. I would like to thank Sally Brush, Kismet Rasmussen and Stacey Frampton for all your help with my journey. There will be a private graveside service.


Rest in Peace & God bless you Ron! You gave me my first job 37 years ago when I was a kid. I grew up & raised a family of my own in the same industry ever since. I appreciate you giving me these opportunities! My sincere Condolences to Ronny, Amy & Family.

Ron, we affectionately called "Bulldog", because of his prowess on the gridiron, was a friend and teammate from age fifteen.
He was a wonderful friend, with a great sense of humor, very loyal to his friends & very smart. I have so many memories of our high school and college years both on the gridiron and off. He was to me, as they say, "one of kind", I shall let him live on with all the memories I carry in my heart and mind.
God Bless you my friend, forever RIP, God Bless Becky & the family!

So sorry for your loss. Ron was a big presence and he will be greatly missed. I feel very fortunate to have spent the last 19 years working for him. He was a great boss and though he was not great at showing his feelings, I always knew he cared and worked hard to take care of all of his employees.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Ron, truly a man of passion for his family, his business, and his customers.
My condolences to Becky and Ronnie and the rest of the family
God’s Blessings and Prayers
