Michael Dean Johnson

of Twin Falls, Idaho
Born: March 2, 1960 in Santa Ana, California
Died: January 21, 2013 in Twin Falls, Idaho
Age: 52 years old
Twin Falls, Idaho - Our beloved brother and son went home Monday, Jan. 21, 2013. He is worshipping now at the feet of the Father along with his mother who passed away on Christmas Day 2012.
Mike was born March 2, 1960, to Leona and Wallace Johnson in Santa Ana, Calif. Mike was born with Down syndrome, and though in those days doctors recommended institutionalization, his parents refused and chose to raise him at home with his loving family. Mike brought joy and unconditional love to all who had the fortune of knowing him. He lived in California and Nevada, where he attended school during a time when those with special needs were not often allowed in schools. He moved to Idaho in 1998 with his parents, where he attended the Center for Independent Living. He later became a resident of Desert View Rehabilitation Center when his health began to decline. Mike loved music and could often be seen listening to his records, rocking back and forth to the beat. He also liked silly movies and just spending time with his family.
Mike is survived by his father, Wallace Johnson of Filer, Idaho; his sister, Lori Robb of Spring Creek, Nev.; his brother, Timothy Johnson of Bremerton, Wash.; brother-in-law, Larry Robb; nephews, Zach and Caleb Robb of Spring Creek, Nev.; and niece, Airman Hannah Robb stationed at Beale Air Force Base.
His broad smile and infectious laughter is what we will miss the most.
A small service for family and friends will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 25, at Rosenau Funeral Home in Twin Falls, Idaho.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Michael’s name to the National Association for Down Syndrome, P.O. Box 206, Wilmette, IL 60091.
