Service for Park Johnson

Park Johnson, 84, our loving father, grandpa and friend said good-bye on Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 in Grand Marais, MN.

He was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana to Stanley and Margaret (Glock) Johnson on Christmas Day 1930. Park spent his foundational years in Milwaukee, WI with his mother and grandmother where he graduated from high school. He went on to pursue a degree in Engineering from The Milwaukee School of Engineering. In the December of 1962, Park decided to sell Christmas trees and have an outdoor corner lot where he met his favorite customer JoAnn Nespodzany who that following February married him and became JoAnn Johnson. They settled in Phoenix, Arizona where Park worked for the Salt River Project. In February 1964, they had their first son, Timothy Scott. Park and family picked out their next destination, Grand Marais, on a map and headed north November of 1967 where he lived the rest of his life. 

Park was a man of many talents that no problem was too hard for him to solve. He loved life, made people laugh through practical jokes and created strong memories in a small community with his big heart. He had a passion for architecture, engineering and building. Park will be remembered for his kindness, wit and hard work ethic.

Park is survived by sons, Tim (Vanessa) and Jeff; grandsons, Logan and Jack.

In lieu of flower memorials are preferred to either The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy or Arrowhead Animal Rescue - Cook County MN.

Visitation and Burial is Monday, April 27, 2015 at St. John's Catholic Church. His final resting place is the Maple Hill Cemetery.
