Locky Leo Johnson was born to Burch and Donna (Galbraith) Johnson on June 19, 1955, in Tracy, Minnesota. As a child, Locky and his family lived in many areas, including rural Balaton, Garretson, South Dakota, Russell, and Minneota. In 1974, Locky graduated from the Minnesota Braille and Sight Saving School in Fairbault. After graduation, Locky moved to Marshall, where he spent the majority of his life. As a young man, he rode his bike everywhere! One would often find him biking the 11 miles from Marshall to Minneota in order to visit his parents, who would then bring him home by car.

In later years, Locky stuck to the Marshall area, but put a lot of miles on his scooter with his rescue dog, Jordan, at his side. They went everywhere! After Jordan passed away, Locky rescued another dog named Lady, who was just as eager to follow Locky around the community. These two dogs were great companions to Locky and provided him the same amount of happiness that he provided them.

Locky had an interest in all kinds of electronic devices and enjoyed movies and music. He owned numerous videos and CDs. With the loss of his sight, music was especially good in the final years of his life with older country music being his favorite. As he listened to his music, he enjoyed eating a big dish of ice cream! Any flavor would do, but Neapolitan was Locky’s favorite.

Locky Leo Johnson died on Thursday, November 3, 2022, at his residence in Marshall, Minnesota. He reached the age of 67 years, 4 months, and 15 days. Blessed be his memory. Locky’s family would like to thank everyone who worked with him for their patience and kindness. He was fortunate to live independently until his final years, and for that, we are grateful.

Locky is survived by his sister, Lanora (and Harold) Mudder of Mandan, ND; brothers, Lauren Johnson (and Pat Peterson) of Sleepy Eye, Lanny (and Phyllis) Johnson of Russell, Lester (and Kelly) Johnson of Fairfield, OH; numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, other extended family, and many friends.

Locky is preceded in death by his parents, Burch and Donna Johnson; brothers, Lavern Johnson, Lowell Johnson; three infant siblings; and his four-legged companions, Jordan and Lady.
