Joseph Leo “Joey” Johnson

Joseph-JohnsonDecember 22, 1989 — March 2, 2016

Joseph Leo “Joey” Johnson, 26, returned home to his Heavenly Father on March 2, 2016. Joey was born in Lambare’, Paraguay, on July 18, 1989, and was welcomed into the Johnson family on December 22, 1989.

Joey was such a loving young man.  He was very tenderhearted; he had a great love and appreciation for all animals, small and large.  He had a contagious smile and a hearty laugh.  Joey enjoyed spending time with his immediate and extended families.  He was loved by everyone who knew him, and he touched the lives of many during his short time on earth.

He earned an Eagle Scout award in his teen years and graduated from Dixie High School in 2007. He served an honorable LDS mission in the Washington, Kennewick mission. He was very intelligent and quick to learn.  He was a hard worker and was employed by Delta Fire Systems at the time of his death.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Joey leaves behind his parents, Mike and Doris Johnson; and his sisters: Lucy Kay and Stephanie. He also leaves behind two very special young ladies that he absolutely loved and adored: Verity Winget and her daughter Kinsley Winget.

Joey was preceded in death by two sets of grandparents:  Mazel K. and Maurine Johnson, and E. Leo and Rena G. Leavitt, who welcomed him with open arms.
