Jan Sigurd Johansen

Jan Sigurd Johansen passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, July 21, 2013, at his home in Sammamish, WA.

Jan was born in Albany, California on July 27, 1954 to Melba and Gunnar Johansen. The second of 5 children, this strapping towheaded child would grow to be a loving and compassionate husband, brother, father, grandfather, uncle and friend.

All through his life Jan strove fervently to serve as a faithful witness to Jehovah. In doing so, his dignity, integrity, honesty and compassion showed in both his personal and professional lives. Known for his kindness and generosity, Jan displayed a love for his family and his fellow man unparalleled by most. Jan had a unique comedic side famous to all who knew him. He could always be counted on for a deadpan joke or a big, boisterous laugh.

Jan was survived by his wife Rosa, siblings; Tekla, Nels, Eric, Risé, his sons; Leif and Thomas, daughters; Michelle, Adriana, Angela, Elizabeth, Deborah, grandchildren; Caysi’Rae, Baylee, Nash, Elizabeth, Taylor, Jasmine, Sara, Michael, Marley, Sophia, Jonathan, Isabel, Julia, Malachai and Asher.

Services will be held Saturday, August 3 at 3 p.m. at Mt. Si High School in Snoqualmie, WA.

We will miss you chickenbutt.
