Steven Johnson

September 26, 1942 — May 30, 2022

 

Steven Johnson, 79, of Fruit Heights, Utah passed away due to a sudden illness on May 30, 2022. Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather was surrounded by his loving wife, several children, grandchildren, and sister-in-law.

Steve was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 26, 1942, to Welby and Jennie Johnson. He was the youngest of four brothers. He graduated from South High School in 1961. He served in the Utah National Guard in the 141st Field Artillery and was activated during the Berlin Crisis of 1961. Steve worked for Standard Stations for many of his younger years and loved telling stories of his time spent there to anyone who would listen.

Steve married the love of his life, Susan, in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple on May 31, 1966. Before they had their four beautiful children, they spent a summer together working at the Grand Canyon where many fond memories were made that lasted a lifetime. Together they enjoyed traveling, attending plays and movies, playing cards, and spending time with family and friends.

As a graduate of Utah Trade Tech, Steve started work at Hill Air Force Base as an Electrical Technician. He took his family on many adventures as he traveled the country working to maintain and upgrade the Titan and Minuteman missile systems. He worked as both Project Manager and Technical Engineer and was especially proud of his work to upgrade the brake system for the F-16 Falcon. He worked at Hill Air Force Base for 44 years and ended his career as an Electronics Engineer. Steve received several awards and honors for his achievements and was known for his exceptional work ethic, which he passed on to each of his children.

Steve spent a life of service to his family and his country. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who did everything in his power to put family first. He also enjoyed playing golf, digging in his yard, and rock collecting, and he could fix almost anything - or at least attempted to. While successful in his career, he was most proud of his family.

Steve is survived by his wife, Susan, his children Scott (Robin), Shannon (Kelly), Jeremy (Diana), and Shawn (Taylor), his brother George (Suzanne), sister-in-law RoseMarie, 14 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Richard and Don, his sister-in-law Luana and his great-grandson Arthur.
