Isaiah Anderson Johnson Jr. 63 went home to his Father in Heaven after a courageous battle with cancer on September 16, 2020. Isaiah was born in Virginia Beach, Virginia and lived there until his military service date when he was 17. He joined the Army and after basic training he became a heavy equipment operator and loader. He spent his time in Japan and Germany and worked for the Army Aircorps for 3 years.
Isaiah's parents Beatrice Elizabeth Kirby & Isaiah Anderson Johnson Sr. and one brother proceeded him in death 10 years ago. Isaiah lived in California, Las Vegas NV, and Utah before retiring at age 60. his goal in life was to retire and work on cruise ships as a dance instructor and assistant purser. He got to do his dream for 1 year before he became sick and had to return home to Washington, Utah.
Isaiah worked for 8 years at the Washington Utah Home Depot as a loader specialist and helped everyone he could help. He was the kind of man who went out of his way to do good for others, just like taking a fellow employee home from work because her car was in the shop , or changing a flat tire in the parking lot in 110* weather for a customer because she could not do it. Isaiah was a kind hearted and loving person who truly lived the saviors advice to "Love one Another."
Isaiah loved to play his guitar, and write songs to sing for his and his friends enjoyment.
He walked to work almost every day even though he had a car to drive, he told me once that he loved to walk and think because it was good for his karma.
Isaiah doesn't have any family alive to speak of , but friends and his family at the Home Depot.
We will miss our friend and brother Isaiah Johnson, he made life better, and easier because he truly cared.
Graveside services will be held Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 1:00pm in at the Utah Veterans Cemetery in Bluffdale, Utah
