Kenneth "Tuck" Jerome Johnson March 5, 1939 - October 4, 2017

Kenneth Jerome Johnson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Ken and Mary Johnson. He grew up in Minneapolis and was fondly known as "Tuck" by his close family. He attended Roosevelt High School and later graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1961 with a B.S. degree in Forestry.

Ken married Judith Ann Johnson on June 22, 1963 in Willmar, Minnesota, at Vinje Lutheran Church. They were happily married for 54 years. Ken and Judy raised two boys, Eric Robert and Matthew Hans.

Ken lived his dream, patrolling the woods as a Forester for 30 years in many states including Minnesota, Michigan, Maine, and Oregon. Ken brought his family west to Oregon in 1979, where he shared his love of the outdoors with his family. He loved hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing, cross-country skiing, and anything in the outdoors.

Ken's hobbies included traditional archery and making his own bows and arrows from wood he gathered in the forest. He also enjoyed photography, golfing, gold prospecting, working in the yard, and travel. For a big man, Ken was light on his feet. He and Judy enjoyed dancing together from the day they met. Ken and Judy lived in Sisters, OR for 22 years; they lived in Newberg, Oregon, for the last year of Ken's life.

Ken is survived by his wife, Judy; his sons, Eric and Matthew; and two grandchildren, Ellie and Ben. A memorial gathering of friends and family will be held in Sisters later this fall.
