who touched so many lives."

Glen Gordon Johnston of Ridgefield, WA, passed away Feb. 9, 2018 after a 2-year battle with cancer. Born July 10, 1943 in Portland, OR to Marilyn and Herbert Johnston, he graduated from Hudson's Bay High School in 1961.

Thank you Glen for making my world a nicer place to live in. While you often told me I was your gift from God, I truly believe it was the other way around. My heartfelt sympathy to Judy and all your loved ones.
