In Memory of Tom Johnson

To everyone who may not yet have heard the news, my Nino, Tom Johnson, died suddenly and unexpectedly on December 3, 2017.

Tom was the loving husband of Rita, who passed away far too soon, and father of Tommy, their only surviving child. What has happened is beyond comprehension and we are all still in shock. Understandably Tommy is struggling to cope, so my family is stepping in to help with organizing final arrangements.

As many are aware, Tom, with his wife and son, moved to Prescott Valley, Arizona several years ago so they may live comfortably in retirement. Although they had met many friends over the years, their family remains in California. We would like to bring Tom home to Watsonville, where he may rest alongside his wife Rita, who was returned to her hometown upon her passing .

We have already had numerous messages from people asking how to help, so this campaign has been created as a way to keep everyone up-to-date with plans, and also offer a place for messages and donations to be left.

Tommy has already gone through the pain of losing his mother, and now, sadly, his father. Let's help him heal by easing the financial burden he now faces.

If you would like to donate, just click on the donate now button and donate whatever you can. If you are not able to donate don’t forget you can still leave messages and comments for Tommy and family to read.

Thank you,
