Otto JOHNSON

JOHNSON Otto Napoleon. January 31, 1918

~ September 9, 2011. Born in Jarrow, Alberta, resided in Vancouver and Mission, BC. Predeceased by his loving wife Agnes (Nessie) and son Don, four sisters and one brother. Survived by his daughter Shirley (Dave) Rothenbusch of Edmonton; daughter-in-law Margaret Johnson of Calgary, grand children Jennifer (Les) George, Julie-Ann (Barry), Babiuk, Erik (Justin) Johnson, Jeffrey Rothenbusch, Ian Johnson, three great – grand children Rache & Scotia George, and Sebastian Babiuk; brother Carl Johnson; sister Mary Finseth; many nieces, nephews and their families; and special friends Mike & Jo Priestley and family. Otto fulfilled his dream of returning to his roots by building a hobby farm in 1973, which became a gathering place for family, friends, and rescued animals. He was always very active in his community, receiving numerous service awards, and was known by many as “the Mayor of Steelhead.” The family would like to thank the staff at Menno hospital, Abbotsford for the loving care they gave Otto in his final days. At Otto’s request, there will be no service. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. If desired, donations in Otto’s memory may be made to Mission Community Services Society, 33179 2nd Ave. Mission, BC V2V 1J9.
