Larry Johnston - Funeral expenses

On Saturday, September 11th our world was rocked with the news of our Dear Sweet Husband, Father and Papa passing away very unexpectedly. 

Our hearts are breaking for the loss of this great man who loved to serve others. He was a chiropractor who loved to help others live a healthy, happy lifestyle. He found so much joy in living life! He loved whitewater rafting, running marathons, triathlons and finishing not 1, not 2, but 4 Ironmans! He made memories with his family and showed his love for us by spending time with us. He loved canyoneering, hiking, and being outdoors soaking up this beautiful world! 
He had a passion for helping others. He joined the Tonto Rim Search and Rescue team in September of 2014, and found joy in rescuing and helping others any chance he could. He loved volunteering on TRSAR.

He has always been willing to serve his family, friends and even strangers.
He had a passion for life and he lived it well. He loved his Family and told us often of his love for each of us.  He was a firm believer in God, Family and this Country.  We never imagined we would be laying to rest this great man so soon! Any amount of donations will be a great help in covering funeral costs and helping support Larry’s sweetheart Kay of 46+ years. 

We find it very appropriate that our hero, who we always called for help, was called home on 9-11.

Our grief is great because our Love was deep. 
Thank you to all who cared for him. 

Life celebration services will be Friday September 24th at 11am at the LDS chapel on 1415 E Southern ave in Mesa
