June 21, 1937 - May 29, 2024

In Loving Memory ~

It is with profound sadness that we announce Mr. Donald 'Don' Alexander Johnson lost his hard-fought battle against dementia, surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 at the age of 86 years.

Don was a vibrant man who was full of life, had a great sense of humour, and had deep love for his family. He was born on June 21, 1937 in Amisk, Alberta to Harriette and Alec Johnson.

Don will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Ruby; his children, Brian and Debbie; and his grandchildren, Tessa, Calum, and Noah.

Don will be sadly missed by his siblings, June (Terry) Rollinson and their daughters, Trina (Mat) and Tanya (Mike) and their families; and Ken (Brenda) Johnson and their daughters, Heather and Marci (Raj) and their families as well as other family members and dear friends.

The family appreciates the care Don received at the Timberstone Mews Memory Care Unit. They also express their utmost gratitude to the staff of Horizon House at Centennial Centre in Ponoka for their exceptional care during Don's stay, especially during his last few days. Not only did they attend to Don's needs in a kind and respectful manner, but they gave wonderful support to the family.

A private family gathering has been held. If desired, memorial donations in Don's honor may be made directly to the Alzheimer's Society of Alberta at
