Steven Edward Johnson
Sun City, CA, Steven E. Johnson, 68, died in May 2019 at his residence. Steve was born December 5, 1950. Steve was the son of Charles C. Johnson and Marjorie B. Johnson of Oceanside, CA.
Steve was a dedicated father and is survived by his son, Ryan Charles Johnson, his wife, Robin and three beautiful grandchildren, Addison, Wyatt, and Austin Johnson. Steve is survived by five sisters and two brothers, Linda Jeter, Marjorie Funkhouser, Mary Quinn, Kathleen Johnson, Janet Riccio, Richard Johnson, and Robert Johnson.
Steve served in the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War was THE LAST war that the United States ever had a draft. Steve voluntarily signed up for the U.S. Army to risk his life and fight for this great country in June 1970 to show his patriotism. Steve did this to help ensure our country’s safety for you and me today. Steve is a Military Veteran. His services will include Military Honors to be held at 11:00 A.M. on Friday October 4, 2019 at Mira Mar National Cemetery, CA at 5795 Nobel Drive, San Diego, CA, 92122. Memorial services will follow.
Steve attended Vista High School in Vista, CA. Steve loved Porsches. He loved scuba diving with his son, Ryan, in Tahiti and Jamaica. As a teenager, he loved surfing at Carlsbad beaches and riding motorcycles. STEVE WILL FOREVER LIVE ON in the hearts of all his family and friends!
Steve was an extremely dedicated man. He was a dedicated father, grandfather, brother and uncle. He sacrificed a great deal of himself for this country with his service in the army during the Vietnam War. He was an adventure seeker and always willing to try something new. He had a great smile, with twinkling, caring eyes and could cook up a delicious meal.
It is important that our works reflect the faith that we have in our hearts. If our works never show the quickening of true faith, then that faith is not true faith at all.
During Steve's life he was always adamant about helping others, his family, brothers and sisters and those that were like him, a proud, God fearing man, who never wanted to be a burden on anyone else. He was also very caring to his fellow veterans and donated when he could by helping them through tough times.
Reading through Steve's bible, I came upon a page he had a marker with Luke 10 written on it, and this passage (27) of Luke seems to be prudent, "THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL THY MIND; AND THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.
May Steve Rest In Peace with Our Lord Our God and we shall be together again in Heaven...
