  • Our beloved Steven Christopher Johnson has graduated mortality and now joins his family on the other side. Steven was born July 25, 1976 to David Leland Johnson and Marilyn Pickett Johnson. He was born in Walnut Creek, California and grew up in the nearby town of Livermore.

    Steven graduated from Livermore High School in 1995. While there he enjoyed his time on the wrestling team winning some and losing some. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served an honorable mission in Baltimore, Maryland. Shortly after his return, he married and was sealed to his sweetheart, Virginia Cummings Johnson in the Oakland, California LDS Temple. Amidst building an Eternal family, Steven worked to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in the field of Business Software Applications from Stevens-Henager College. Steven worked hard for his job as a Tech Support Specialist, but his most important role was that of a Husband and Father.

    Steven will be remembered for his love of life. He was active in his community, loved Star Wars and martial arts movies and was quick to memorize the lyrics to his favorite songs. Steven led a quiet simple life, but above all he cherished his family.

    Steven passed on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 in Orem, Utah after a sudden bout with illness. His quiet strength continues to show in the way his five children honor him. Steven will be missed, but in the words of Luke Skywalker, “No one’s ever really gone.”

    He is survived by his wife and partner, Virginia Johnson, his children, Christopher Michael Johnson, Xander Johnson, David Gavin Johnson, Daniel Bruce Johnson, and Moana Lynn Johnson, his mother, Marilyn Pickett Johnson, and his siblings, Michael Edmond Johnson, Eric Randal Johnson (Craig Souza), Mark Wayne Johnson, and Jennifer Johnson Fisher (Ryan Fisher). He was preceded in death by his father, David Leland Johnson.

    There will be a viewing at Timpview 6th Ward, 1050 North 600 West in Orem on Friday, September 3, 2021, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Funeral Services will be Saturday, September 4, 2021, at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road, at 11:00 a.m. with a visitation from 9:30-10:45 a.m. prior to the services.

    Growing up with the Johnson family we shared many wonderful times together. I will remember Steven especially when I was his Cub Scout Leader. We met at my house. He was always so happy and excited for everything we were doing. My love to the family. May God bless and keep you!

    Steven was one of my oldest friends. He and his brothers were my next-door neighbors when my family moved across town. He was always the strongest, bravest and most positive of our group. Being with Steven as a kid was like having Superman for a friend. I am so sad to see him go.

    - Robert Miles

    Our family is heartbroken to hear that Steven has passed. I loved being his Primary teacher and watching him grow. What a beautiful light in the Johnson family! May the Savior comfort all of you. We add our prayers and love.

    We are so sorry for your loss. I wish I would have got to know Steven more but just the little time I did I knew Steven was a great person and spiritual being. Please let us know if we can help in anyway. Your family is in our prayers.
