Obituary

Darrell M. Johnson, born on February 10, 1937 to Ebba and Edwin Johnson in Greeley, Colorado, went to his heavenly home on March 28, 2020. Darrell grew up in Greeley and graduated from Greeley High School with the class of ’55, many of whom remained life-long friends.

Darrell attended the University of Colorado where he studied business. He served in the U.S. Army during the Berlin Crisis and was designated an expert marksman.

He worked in his father’s grocery store, Johnson’s Market in Ault. Later, he opened Johnson’s Market in LaSalle. In 1968, Darrell began working for Monfort of Colorado Distributing. In the ensuing years, he opened and managed distributing branches in Idaho, Texas and Montana. He was hired in 1980 by Sysco Foods, where he was “Center of the Plate” specialist. In 1984, the family moved once again to Greeley where he worked for Miller Feed Lots and Monfort of Colorado.

He loved God and was a member of Bethel Baptist Church since he was a young child. There he served as usher, trustee and choir member. He loved God, his family, his home and America.

Darrell loved sports and prior to his debilitating illness, was an avid golfer, fisherman and hunter. He was a fan of the Broncos, Rockies and especially his CU Buffs.

In 1966, Darrell married Germaine Ludwig. They were the proud parents of three loving daughters and five wonderful grandchildren.

Darrell leaves his devoted wife of 54 years, Germaine, three daughters; Heather (Paul) Adams, Laurel (Todd) Kuchman and Cris Talarico, five grandchildren; Alec, Tate and Blake Adams, Luke Talarico and Kyndal Kuchman, and his sister, Donna Ewing.

His family will host a virtual service at Bethel Baptist Church on Wednesday, April 8 at 11:00 a.m., which can be viewed on YouTube or Facebook by searching for "Bethel Greeley Live". YouTube, (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZrmf13B3m1qjo2zn3CzBfg/live) Facebook, (https://www.facebook.com/BethelBaptistGreeley/live/). A public gathering of friends and family will be announced at a later date.

Memorial gifts may be made to “Bethel Baptist Church” or “Salvation Army” in care of Adamson, 2000 47th Ave., Greeley, CO 80634. Friends may leave condolences at AdamsonCares.com.

Words by Germaine: Darrell will be sorely missed by his family. Though soft spoken, his words were few, but powerful, and his love for us, not always visible, was fierce. He had many life-long friends who have kept in contact with him throughout his life.

Darrell knew what he wanted in life and didn't hesitate to pursue it. When he saw my photo in the paper, he vowed to find out who I was. Through questioning friends and acquaintances, he found my phone number and called to ask for a date. His persistence was rewarded and three months later, we were married.

Darrell was a vibrant, constantly-moving individual until his illness began to curtail his many activities. Soon he began to feel himself in a body he could not recognize. Throughout those many ensuing years, he kept his faith and complained very little.

One year ago in November, he was so debilitated he entered the rest home. He always wanted to come home, but knew he could not. He was sweet and kind to the very end and always stoic about his pain. When asked, he always said, "I feel fine, don't worry about me". Our loved ones know he is with the Lord and we have visions of him walking and running in Heaven!
