Ryan D. Johnson
Ryan D. Johnson, 26, passed away suddenly January 14, 2010.
Born in Redondo Beach, California, Ryan moved to Cuyahoga Falls at the
age of two, where he embarked upon an enterprising and colorful life.
Like many who pass before their time, Ryan’s brief life could not yet be
measured by conventional achievements. Rather, Ryan’s contributions are
best exemplified by the vast multitude of smiles, stories, and comments
of those who were fortunate enough to be touched by his love,
friendship, generosity, and good will.
/ “…As we watch a shooting star fade into the sky, we wonder how far its
brilliance might have reached.”/
Ryan leaves his loving mother, Claudia Johnson of Cuyahoga Falls; his
loving father, Randall Johnson of Salt Lake City; his beloved sister,
Megan Johnson of Miami Beach; grandmothers Veronica Dimengo of Sheffield
Lake and Mildred Johnson of Provo; uncles Timothy (Linda) Dimengo,
Michael Dimengo, Mark (Josephine) Dimengo, Joel (Linda) Dimengo,
Christopher Dimengo, Charles Johnson; aunts Sue (Ramon) Sanft, Catherine
Dimengo, Maria Dimengo, and numerous cousins and friends.
