John Sherman Johnston

October 8, 1936 — December 3, 2018

John Sherman Johnston, 82, peacefully passed away Monday, December 3, 2018 at his daughter’s home in Eagar. He was born October 8, 1936 in Phoenix, the son of James Johnston and Jane O’Neil Johnston.

John was a kind person who enjoyed spending time with family and friends….and strangers….LOL. John tried to befriend every stranger he met. John lived his whole life dedicated to serving others, whether it was taking the time to help kids get scholarships or helping his neighbor that lived 40 miles away castrate their cows….He truly enjoyed getting the call for help. He loved coaching and teaching kids.

He is survived by his sons, Dan Johnston, West Point, Utah; Roy Eagle, Mayer; Steven Johnston, Casa Grande; Sean Johnston, Eagar; Johnny Johnston, Cottonwood; Scott Johnston, Rynn Hamblin, Queen Creek; daughters, Billy Jo Walker, Eagar; Sandra Johnston, Mayer; Leana Hamblin, Mesa; Romelle Richard, Eagar; Marlene Thompson, Gilbert; brother, Wes Johnston and lots and lots of grandkids.

He was preceded in death by his parents and beautiful bride, Marie Brown Hamblin Johnston.
