In loving memory of Don Johnston, age 61 of Spring Lake, who passed away on Friday, May 29, 2020 at Mercy Hospital, after battling Multiple Myeloma Cancer. He was born on January 15, 1959 in Muskegon, MI to the late Donald Roy and Janice Elaine (Dregne) Johnston, Sr. Don married Cheryl Robertson on June 18, 1983 in Grand Haven, MI.

He worked at Grand Valley Marina as a Marine Technician for 29 years. He was a big U of M fan who enjoyed boating, camping, and yardwork. He took pride in seeing the results of a hard day’s work. He always had a story to tell about all the friends he made over the years, and he loved to make people laugh.

Don is remembered and missed by his wife of almost 37 years, Cheryl; his son, Justin (Kristin); daughter, JoDee; brother, Ron (Kathy); sisters-in-law, Lori and Kris; nieces and nephews, Elizabeth, Mackenzie and Isaiah; great friend, Jeff Noel; and special close friends, Barb and Ed. He was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Phyllis Bradley, and father-in-law, Chuck Robertson.

The Memorial Service for Donald will be at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at Grand Valley Marina in the pavilion area with Pastor Dan Seaborn officiating.

Memorial Contributions may be given to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
