Obituary – Kenneth Johnson


Kenneth Ian Johnson of Kincardine passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at South Bruce Grey Health Centre – Kincardine, four days short of his 72nd birthday.
Beloved husband and best friend of Cathy Johnson (née Eskrick).
Proud and loving father of Jason (Tegan) Johnson and Joel (Nikki) Johnson.
Cherished Papa of Abby, Piper, Katie, Bo, Emma, Quinn and Eddie.
Sadly missed by his brother David Johnson, and sister Linda MacTavish (Bill).
Fondly remembered by in-laws Marj (Art) Koberinski, Don MacGregor, Carol Johnson, Jim (Laurie) Eskrick and Sandy Quinn and Bob Campbell, his many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Predeceased by his parents Doug and Lyda (née Bushell) Johnson, sister Sheila MacGregor, brother Bill Johnson, and sister-in-law Lois Johnson.
Ken lived life to the fullest. No one who met Ken forgot his infectious smile and laugh. He told stories like no other and people always had a story to tell about him. After retiring from the Municipality of Kincardine, Ken enjoyed spending countless hours on his farm, fishing, being outside gardening, time on the course with the Wanna Be Golfers and at family functions with his beloved grandkids. A trickster who loved to tease; he loved to tease his friends, his sons, his wife (a little extra) and all his special grandkids. They all loved it too, and will miss this the most.
Always the first to lend a hand where needed, but the last to ask for help. A loyal friend, devoted husband, proud father, brother and uncle but, most importantly, the best Papa. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
Ken’s family invite relatives and friends to a celebration of his life at the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 183, Kincardine on from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, 2024.
Final resting place: Kincardine Cemetery.
Memorial donations to the Huron Shores Hospice or to the Kincardine Fire Department would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
