October 2, 1952 - April 12, 2009
Humor and laughter is what distinguishes Man from all other creatures. Doug Johnson had no shortage of either. Able to bring a smile to everybody he came in contact with through his wit, sarcasm or jokes, Doug made the world a more enjoyable place to be. He will be sorely missed by all his friends and family.
Doug passed away April 12, 2009, after an unexpected bout of pneumonia. He was 56.
Doug was born Oct. 2, 1952, in Seattle. He considered Steamboat Springs home while raising his children and growing his business locally for more than 25 years.
He is survived by his three children, Brandon, Eric and Tracey Johnson; along with four grandchildren, Austin, Rylea, Bayley and Jayten Johnson. He also is survived by his parents, Glenn and Donna Johnson; and his three siblings, Kelly Johnson, Vicki Tilton and Jodi Johnson.
A gathering of friends and family is planned from 5 to 8 p.m. May 9 at the Steamboat Smokehouse restaurant on Lincoln Avenue. As Doug would have wanted, it will be a casual gathering of fond memories and laughter among friends.
In lieu of flowers, small donations may be made to the Doug Johnson Foundation at any Alpine Bank branch.
