Obituary: Mitch Johnson

r Mitchell (Mitch) Scott Johnson, 56, passed away in his daughter’s home in Payson, Utah, on Jan. 21, 2017, surrounded by his family and loved ones. He was born Sept. 14, 1960, in Richfield, Utah, to Robert Huge and Ada Claire Kotter Johnson. Mitch married Sherry Anderson on April 19, 1980, and they had two daughters. They later divorced.

Mitch began working for the railroad as a train engineer at the age of 18 and retired at age 39 due to health issues. He had a great sense of humor, sharing endless laughs with friends, loved ones and even new acquaintances.

Mitch grew up in Salina, Utah, and as an adult lived in Helper, Utah. After retiring, he moved to Utah County to be closer to his children and grandchildren.

He is survived by his two daughters: Brickell (Jeff) Tracy of Payson and Sheena (Casey) Perry of Spanish Fork; and four of his greatest blessings – his grandchildren: Colton, JT and Maddie Tracy and Avery Perry; his mother, Claire Johnson, of Salina; and three siblings: Valerie (Jeff) Turek, St. George, Jeff Johnson, Pueblo, Colo., and Joe (Karen) Johnson, Lehi; seven nieces and nephews; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and longtime friends. He was preceded in death by his father; a nephew, Jordan Johnson; and his beloved dog Valerie.

Our family would like to express special thanks to the wonderful, kind and caring nurses at Encompass Hospice for taking such great care of our dad. Not only did you take such great care, he mostly enjoyed your friendship. And to the Brown family, thank you for being such great friends to him.

Funeral services were held Jan. 28, 2017, at the Brown Family Mortuary in Santaquin. Interment was in the Payson City Cemetery.
