Devin Alan Johnson was born in Reno, Nev., on March 9, 2003. He passed on March 27, 2015 from the loving arms of his grandparents, Carolyn and Wayne Miller to the loving arms of his Heavenly Father. He was loaned to us here in mortality for only 12 short years, but to those of us whose lives he touched, he made an eternal impression.
He was active in his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and was baptized when he was 8 years old. He had, only 2 weeks before his passing, received the Aaronic Pristhood, which is a very important achievement in the life of a young man in our church. He was also active in his Boy Scout Troop 357. He loved to play games and spend time with family and friends, of all ages. He loved to ride the bike he received for his birthday, and loved riding on the motorcycle with his good buddy, Don Arbon. He faced many challenges in his short life but he “passed the test” and has returned home. He leaves behind too many of us to mention, but most especially, his grandparents, Carolyn and Wayne Miller, who have been his earthly guardians since he was 3 months old, his brothers: Christian, Austin and Dacota, a sister Rene; uncle David Hartly, biological parents: Sherry Wilder and Trever Johnson, and other relatives. Also, too many to name, teachers and staff from Dry Hollow and The Dalles Middle Schools; as well as church teachers and leaders, neighbors and countless friends from the very young to the very old. We will miss him terribly but we all know he is in a better place.
There will be a memorial service at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Wednesday, April 8 at 6 p.m. All are welcome.
