Jeff A. Johnson


Jeff A. Johnson, born on February 3, 1958 in Arlington, Washington, passed away at age 60 on January 27, 2019 at home in Spokane, WA, surrounded by family. Jeff was a graduate of Stanwood High School in 1976 and attended Washington State University in pursuit of a degree in veterinary medicine.

Prior to moving his family to Spokane, Jeff and family farmed and lived on the historical homestead/farm that is known as “Haller City”, now a city park along the Stillaguamish River. Jeff is survived by his loving wife and best friend Pat Johnson, his children Lauren Engelhardt and Karl Johnson, grandsons Anthony and Spencer Northington; his father Leroy Johnson; sisters Julie Custer and Jill Andres; brothers,Joel, Jay and Jon Johnson, and countless nephews, nieces, cousins, friends, family and neighbors. Jeff was preceded in death by his mother, Jeanette Gail Johnson, and his maternal and paternal grandparents. Jeff loved his family dearly and spending time with them was always his priority, gardening, being a grandpa and had a “bucket list” left to accomplish in his life. A wake and celebration of Jeff’s life will be held this summer on Juniper Beach, Camano Island, WA, one of his favorite places on earth. Family requests donations to Hospice of Spokane, 121 S.
