William Johnson

Obituary of William Earl Johnson

In loving memory of William “Bill” Johnson, an Army veteran of the Vietnam War.  Though he spoke little of his service, his military experience contributed to the man he became. 


Bill mastered electronics, directing his expertise into a security business that went beyond technology.  Each customer received a personal touch as he understood their unique needs, ensuring families felt secure in their homes.


Known for his love of dogs, he was sometimes seen sharing popsicles with his loyal companions and forged deep bonds with his canine family members.  He would laugh to hear his family say that although he was difficult at times, they all knew his love for his wife and daughters was wholehearted.


Proud of the love and independence within his family,  Bill found joy in witnessing his daughter Diane Schaefer’s Air Force service and celebrating his daughter Danielle’s journey into education.  He took pleasure in watching his daughters raise incredible grandchildren, reveling in their remarkable accomplishments.


William Earl Johnson is survived by his devoted wife Deborah Johnson, cherished daughters Danielle Burleson and Diane Schaefer, and beloved grandchildren Kylie Creek, Kaylynne Burleson, Brendon Creek, Matthew Slazinik and Logan Schaefer.


May his memory be a source of comfort and inspiration to all who knew him.
