Daniel I. Johnson, 61

October 8, 2013

Daniel Ira Johnson (Danny) was born on Nov. 7, 1951, to Ira William and Noreen Louise Johnson, their third of five children. Danny grew up on a dairy farm in Williams Valley west of Deer Park.
His Christian parents raised him to become the Godly man that we all loved so much. Since the family never owned a TV, after a long day of chores, they played games, and read the Bible together. As an adult, without fail, year in and year out, every morning with his bowl of Wheaties cereal, you would find Dan reading his well-worn Bible, seeking and soaking up the Word of God.
