Charles Andrew 'Chuck' Johnson, 81, Orofino
Charles Andrew 'Chuck' Johnson, beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and uncle, passed away in Spokane at Hospice of Spokane, Feb. 11, 2011. He had been hospitalized for pneumonia after recovering from heart surgery in November. He was 81 years old.
Born in 1929 in Langdon, ND, Chuck was one of six children. After graduating high school, Chuck joined the United States Army, which allowed him to see parts of Europe. Upon his discharge, he moved to Minneapolis, MI where he not only studied to become a journeyman electrician, he met his wife, Margaret. They married in 1955, and moved to Orofino in 1956. They had four children, Linda (b. 1958) Beth (b. 1961), Peggy (b. 1963) and David (b.1965).
Shortly after moving to Orofino, Chuck and Marge became two of the founding members of Ascension Lutheran Church. Over the years, Chuck spent many hours working at the church, helping to build it and making repairs, ushering and serving on church council. Chuck worked for Stoddard Electric and eventually became a part-owner of the business. Over the years, he worked on many of the businesses, schools and government buildings in the region. He continued work well past his 80th birthday, because he enjoyed his job and liked to keep busy.
He enjoyed learning new things, particularly about science and history and believed in the power of an education, whether you got it at school or learned through reading.
Chuck is survived by his wife of 55 years Margaret, daughter Beth and granddaughter Alicia, brothers Robert (Fargo ND) and Russ (Othello WA) and sister Joan (Almira, WA) as well as many, many nieces and nephews.
