Obituary for Raymond C. Johnson
Raymond (Ray) Johnson of Luck, Wisconsin passed away on Friday March 27, 2015. He was born in Cedar Falls, Iowa on February 19, 1931 to Clarence and Helene Johnson. He graduated from Dike High School in 1949 and then attended Grand View College for two years. There he met Alma Johnson, the love of his life and they were married at West Denmark Lutheran Church (Luck, Wisconsin) on July 27th, 1952. Soon after, Ray left to proudly serve in the Korean War as a member of the 24th Division of the US Army. Upon an Honorable discharge and coming home, he started farming in the Cedar Falls, Iowa (Fredsville) area. Later, Ray worked for the USDA in the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service office in Grundy Center, Iowa. In 1996, Ray and Alma retired and moved to Luck.

Ray was a devoted husband and father, always serving, supporting and caring. This extended far beyond his family to congregations at Fredsville and West Denmark. Being part of these churches and their communities was vital to him. His kind and humble manner was known by alla quiet grace. This was clearly evident in his caring for Alma as her health declined. He found joy in working outside, puttering around home, and loved to observe what nature had to share, especially the wildlife around their Little Butternut home. Ray enjoyed reading and was an excellent writer, keeping a journal for many years.
Ray is survived by son, David (Karen) of Petaluma, California; daughter, Susan Lannoo (Mike) of Terre Haute, Indiana; son, Paul (Patty) of Logan, Utah; sister, Lorraine Braun (Don) of Cedar Falls, Iowa; brother, Vernon Johnson (Margaret) of Beaverton, Oregon; and grandsons, Samuel, Phillip, Peter, Jakob, and Daniel. He was preceded in death by Alma.

A memorial service will be held Friday, May 1st at West Denmark Lutheran Church, 2478 170th Street, Luck, Wisconsin - visitation will begin at 1 p.m. and the service at 2 p.m. A reception at the church will follow.

An online guestbook is available at www.rowefh.com . Arrangements are entrusted to Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, 715-472-2444.
