Michael Arvid Johnson, of rural Mora, passed away on Sunday, May 3, 2015, surrounded by loved ones. He was 55 years old.
Mike was born on May 12, 1959. He grew up in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota and graduated from Park Center High in 1978. When Mike was young, he said his life plans (at age 17 or 18) were to: live a private life on his own land, and marry -having children (10 to be exact). Simple but perfect. Mike did what 70% of the world can’t do; he owned his home and he found the perfect wife (possibly the only woman in the world that could understand him). He was married twenty two years and he has two wonderful children.
Mike wanted to live in the country and wanted to have his own trailer company. He sold trailers that he welded and assembled for many years as well as painted cars. He later moved to the Mora area near his mother’s cabin with his beloved dog “Coke”. Mike had a great passion for his horse named Honey as well as dogs; Bear and Peedee.
Mike should be remembered as a very genuine, private person with nervous like personality. He was extremely compassionate when others needed that kind of support. He also had a unique sense of humor that few really understood as well as being very social when least expected.
All that knew him will greatly miss him.
Mike was preceded in death by his father Carl Arvid Johnson, sister Faye Marie Johnson-Nelson and beloved cousin Kevin Feia.
He is survived by his wife Willamean Jean Johnson; daughter Keeli Ann Johnson; son Carl Arvid Johnson; mother Marcella Marie Pilarski-Johnson; brothers, Mark Allen Johnson and wife Kathy, Timothy Johnson and wife Sylvia, Gary Johnson, Anthony Lee Johnson and wife Debbie, Russell James Johansson and wife Diane, Todd Eugene Vincent Johnson and wife Nancy Vincent Johnson; as well as numerous cousins, brothers and sisters in-law, nieces and nephews ,as well as many extended family members and beloved friends.
