The Johnstons moved to Arizona in 1978 and have lived in Kingman since 2000. They have spent much of their retirement volunteering in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Las Vegas Temple and the Family History Center in Kingman.

Brother Johnston was one of those people
that you like right away! Always smiling,
with a real concern for others. Yes, he
will be missed, however, I bet there is a big
reunion going on in the spiritual world !!!!!!!!!

Thanks for letting me know you, a little bit !!!
