Charles Russell Johnson

CR Johnson was born out of open minded free loving parents Rusty and Lorraine. Pushed out into a hot summer night in Truckee California August 10th 1983, CR was born good and born screaming. When one looks up perseverance in the dictionary there ought to be a picture of CR pushing a walker learning to take baby steps after suffering a ski accident in 2005. This ski accident left him in a coma for two weeks with major brain injuries.

Now compare that to the next photo less then 2 years later of him shooting out of West Face on KT at Squaw Valley. He was dedicated and inspiring. CR appreciated his family, friends and a powder day. He rode the positive choo choo train and was accepting of all people. Curious and open minded when it came to folks who had beliefs that were not
his own.

Son, brother, friend and 100% lover. He loved to love and loved to ski. Loved to sit down and work on his sewing machine. Loved to wear that green jacket! Proud lion, free spirit, shooting star!
