Douglas Manther Johnson, 68, went to be with the Lord on Monday, February 5, 2018, unexpectedly at his home in Cumberland, WI.

Doug was born on December 7, 1949 in Amery, WI. He was the son of the late Manther and Ruth Johnson. He graduated from Clayton High School in 1968. Doug went on to work at Andersen Windows, where he was employed in the carpentry shop for 39 years. In 1969, he married his former wife Muriel Edwards. They went on to raise three cherished children. Although the marriage did not continue, they always remained close friends. Doug went on to remarry Rosceal on August 8, 1997, at Bethany Free Lutheran Church in Clayton, WI. They shared a beautiful and joyful marriage together and were always by each other's side. Doug enjoyed woodworking and was gifted in his talent. He especially loved and cherished the time he got to spend with his son Todd in the workshop. Doug always looked forward to deer hunting every year with his son Corey. The multiple coffee breaks and stops to visit with the "ol' timers" were always the highlights of his week. Doug always had a good story to share and loved to talk politics. He had a passion for ice fishing and was sure proud of his 1949 Ford Tractor.  He had a heart of gold and an immense love for his family. He took great pride in his two grandsons, Collin and Braylin. Doug was overjoyed by his newest grandson, Braylin Douglas, who was named after him. Doug loved the Lord, and that gives his family such peace, knowing his soul is now with those who passed before. He has seen the face of Jesus, and we can only imagine the incredible joy.

Doug is survived by his wife, Rosceal Johnson;  son Corey (Cheri) Johnson; daughter,  Tayla (Chad) Zachariason; grandsons, Collin Johnson & Braylin Zachariason; brother Roger (Lois) Johnson; sister Lois (Dean) Dietrich; stepsons, Jay (Beth) Monson & Chad (Liz) Monson; stepdaughter Jodi (Nate Markell) Monson; 10 step grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Doug was preceded in death by his father Manther Johnson; mother Ruth Johnson; son Todd Johnson; infant sons Kevin and Tryn Johnson; brother Glen"Sonny"Johnson;  and infant sister Lola Johnson.

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for He is still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, he lives on. It was an honor knowing Doug. He was as a Good Man, and He was my Friend. Dennis
