Obituary Notices and Memorials


JOHNSON, Danny The sweet & irrepressible Danny Johnson passed away on August 28, 2014 at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eugene, Ore. Danny is survived by his daughter Cheryl Lesser; granddaughter & husband Courtney & Scott Bell; great-granddaughter Layla, all of Tampa FL; grandson Matt Lesser of Los Angeles, Calif., daughter Kate & son-in-law Chuck Fuller of Eugene, Ore.; brother Richard Johnson of San Antonio, Texas; sister Helen Eddy of Boise, Idaho & numerous nieces & nephews. He also leaves behind Jon Lion of Lebanon, Ore. who was like a son, and good friend Steve Neill of Lebanon, Ore. Danny loved living in Oregon but Quartz Hill, Calif., was always home to him. He had a successful plastering contracting business & plastered many of the homes and businesses in the Antelope Valley. He also owned rentals in California & Oregon. Dad loved red meat, boxed wine & never turned down a cold beer. His tag line was 'I'm a junker' & the items he left behind are proof of his love of a good deal. Dad always made us laugh, we have many funny stories to remember. We called him the original McGuyver because anything could be fixed with a roll of duct tape. He was quietly kind, like giving his tenants a months free rent when they had a baby. The family will have a private celebration, toasting dad with a cold beer & strawberry milkshakes and Chuck will sing 'Oh Danny Boy'. We are so grateful for the kind & compassionate staff at Acute Care for the Elderly at Sacred Heart for his peaceful passing. To honor his memory as a Marine, a donation will be made to the VFW Post 3000 in Quartz Hill, CA to have a Happy Hour on Danny. If you desire, donations may be made to the VFW and the Alzheimer's Association. Arrangements by Sunset Hills Funeral Home, Eugene OR
