David Johnson was born July 2, 1945 in Seattle, Washington to Emmett and Marjorie Johnson. He graduated from Menlo High School and Menlo Junior College before pursuing his ultimate passion of ski racing at Mammoth Mountain, California. Dave enrolled in Southern Oregon College in 1969 where he met his bride, Cindy Weber, married and graduated 1971.
Dave worked as a Certified Purchasing Manager throughout his 35-year career in Utah and Washington. His ski retirement was interrupted by a second career driving school bus for SVSD until retirement in 2016. School bus driving allowed Dave to ski mornings after delivering the children to school.
Dave is survived by his loving wife Cindy Johnson, daughter Kathy and Paul Shackelford, son Jaydan and Mia Johnson and sweet granddaughters Madeleine and Cora Shackelford. Dave was invited to heaven February 26, 2017 while on ski adventure to Bozeman, Montana, surrounded by his loving family.
A memorial to honor Dave was held March 11 at the CRW Education Center.
