Steven Johnson

October 10, 1943 ~ February 18, 2018

Steve’s journey began On October 10, 1943 in Galveston, Texas.  He spent his childhood from Canada to Mexico, Columbia and Venezuela, with many stops in between as his father, Stanton M. Johnson was a construction foreman and his mother, Rilda Rice, cared for the family’s small children.

For many years, Steve lived in and around the San Antonio, Texas area.  Two years ago he moved to Bozeman, Montana to be with his daughter and family. 

Steve’s many accomplishments in life include being an influential high school teacher, founder of The Chain Gang BMW motorcycle club, poet and photographer, and champion for homeless families and children in need.  He is remembered for his giving spirit, kind heart and many life lessons.  Steve always sought out a way in which he could help his community and friends.

Although his journey ended on February 18, 2018, Steve’s memory lives on in his daughter and son-in-law, Katharine and Brandon Johnson, and their children Garrett, Renee and Dylan.  His memory continues to be loved by his brother, Curt, and sister, Jackie, and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.  He will be remembered fondly as a dedicated father and grandfather. 

Steve did not want a service.  For those wishing to donate in his memory, please consider CASA of Mena, Arkansas (812 DeQueen Street, Suite G, Mena, AR 71953) or Bozeman Health Foundation: Hospice (931 Highland Boulevard, Suite 3200, Bozeman, MT 59715), or consider donating your time to help the homeless population in your community or mentor a child.
