Curtis George Johnson, 85, Burnsville, MN, on April 22, 2023, entered the eternal rest of God and into the arms of Jesus Christ his Savior in Burnsville, MN.
Curtis was born in Dent, Minnesota on December 9, 1937, to Adolph Edward and Louise Erna (Kerlin) Johnson. He grew up in the Dent area and after serving in the US Army he met Sharon in Cedar, MN and were married 63 years before her death last July.
In the early years Curt and Sharon enjoyed watching their sons wrestle and later on spent many years in the horse racing business. His professional life was in the plumbing, heating and A/C field having a successful business for many years with his co-owner and business partner, Dave Berdan at JBerd Mechanical in St. Cloud, MN.
One of the highlights of the last 10 years was memorizing Bible verses, often you’d hear him in the next room seemingly talking to himself, but mom said he’s memorizing Scripture! He had a spreadsheet all color coded, such a precious memory!
Curt was larger than life with a big heart & big personality! A favorite pastime of his was watching sports on TV especially the Twins. He was also a lifelong Dodgers fan!
