On May 17, 2019 our husband, father, son and brother, Tyson Johnson, passed away unexpectedly. Tyson was an avid fisherman and hunter and loved his wife of 18 years, Jenny, and their son, 4-year-old Colby.

Tyson has been one of the most kind and loving men we have ever met. He embraced everyone like he did life, with kindness and vigor.

We truly have lost our loving brother to heaven. We only hope and pray that he is finding bigger potholes to fish in than ever before and that the caribou have racks as big as the sky.

In a recent email to family, Tyson captured his reflections on life “For us, much of our spirituality is found in the outdoors where we often discuss how grateful we are to be part of the bigger picture.”

A Celebration of Life will be held at Settlers Bay Lodge, 5801 South Knik Goose Bay Rd, Wasillla AK at 4pm Thursday May 23rd.

There will be further information about a Celebration of Life in Reno, NV shortly thereafter.

One hundred percent of the donations will go to Jen and Colby to support them through this transition in life.

Thank you for everyone’s overwhelming support and patience through this last week. All of the kind sentiments and grace with your giving of time and resources have been comforting to Tyson’s family.

We wanted to share more information about what occurred last Friday with Tyson. Tyson had been on an outing in the Knik Wilderness area outside of Wasilla AK with friends when he suffered a sudden and unexpected heart attack at 39 years old. Tyson’s family knows that he did not suffer and was doing what he loved, being in the great outdoors.

We want to extend our undying gratitude to the heroic efforts of the men he was with to try and save his life and ultimately signal for help and evacuate him. Included are the first responders who risked their lives in providing assistance in the evacuation and medical care, and the men and women who have cared for him and our family during this ordeal.

We are forever grateful for the outpouring of love. He was clearly a man who touched many lives. Please continue to stay in touch and share the warming stories you have had with him.
