    “Grandpa is tough”

    Our loving husband, father, grandfather and brother passed away at home on Sunday morning Feb. 6 at 2:21, surrounded by his family.

    He was born in Lander, Wyo. on March 22, 1950. Moved to Moab, Utah at the age of 5. He attended and graduated from Grand County High School, where he met his wife, Patti. They moved to Salt Lake City in 1968. Johnnie and Patti were married in 1971.

    He is survived by his wife, Patti; sons, Travis, and Justin (Lisa); his daughter, Ashlee; grandchildren, Jaxon and McCall; sister, Larraine (Ron); and brothers, Frank (Roxie) and Dan (Peggy).

    He was preceded in death by his mother, a sister, and his favorite cat, Salem.
