Jeffrey Matthew Johnson was born in South Lake Tahoe, California at Barton Memorial Hospital to Craig and Joan Johnson. Throughout his childhood, he played many sports that included baseball and golf, among others. In high school, he became introduced to off roading, which became his life. He loved going out with all his friends to the Rubicon. He loved working at Blazen Off Road where four-wheeling was his passion. Because of Blazen Off Road, Jeff met and fell in love with Christie Smith. They instantly fell head over heels for each other and became inseparable. Throughout their 12 years of love for each other, they loved to travel. In their travels, they found themselves in North Dakota where they got married at Crows Fly High Point in New Town, North Dakota on November 15th, 2013. Jeff and Christie welcomed their first son, Brett Lawerence Johnson, on April 13, 2016 in Dickinson, North Dakota. As their love continued to grow, they welcomed their second son, Matthew Vernon Johnson on November 26, 2018 in Dickinson, North Dakota. Before welcoming their boys, Jeff and Christie traveled to Idaho many times a year and fell in love with the state, the scenery, and decided to make this their “Idahome.” After Brett was born, every year they would take trips to Idaho. They would meet Craig, Joan, and his little sister, Katie, and go on many adventures. Jeff, Christie and the boys decided to make Idaho their home so they picked up their life and made the move to their forever “Idahome.”
Jeff was dedicated at all his endeavors, including his latest at Bennett Lumber. He was an avid golfer. On the weekends, he loved to compete in tournaments with his friends. He loved to go camping and travel with his wife. Everything he did, he did for his family. His wife was his everything, and his two boys were his absolute complete world. He adored his little family and always put them first. He was an amazing friend to all that met him. He found peace and comfort in the little things, such as driving up to the property and spending time with his neighbors. He was an amazing husband who treated his wife like a queen. Jeff’s boys, Brett and Matthew, made him feel complete. He spent every moment he possibly could with his boys; laughing, playing and teaching them life skills. Jeff’s face would light up with joy every moment he got to spend time with his perfect little family. Jeffrey Matthew Johnson is survived by his wife, Christine Lauren Johnson, his 2 sons, Brett Lawerence Johnson and Matthew Vernon Johnson. His mother, Joan Johnson. His father, Craig Johnson, his little sister, Katie Johnson and his many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. He will be dearly missed by all.
