Neal Alan Johnson

Cedar Rapids

Neal Alan Johnson, 62, of Cedar Rapids, passed away Jan. 21, 2018, at home. A private family gathering will be held to celebrate Neal's life.
Neal was born June 1, 1955, in Caledonia, Minn., the son of Donald and Luella Johnson. He graduated in 1973 from Jefferson High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He had his own lawn and yard care service for the years he was able to work.
Neal played high school football for three years at Jefferson. He took great pride in his work, and was greatly admired for his strength and determination through his illness in later years.
Survivors are his sisters, Carroll St. John and Donna Miller of Cedar Rapids; and three nephews.
A special thank-you to Melanie with UnityPoint Home Care, Susan and Renee with UnityPoint Pallative Care, and volunteer Dick, who visited Neal and brought him to spiritual peace. Thank-you also to Aunt Judy, Aunt Molly and Uncle Junior, who directly supported Neal during his illness.
