David Johnson Obituary, Death – On November 9, David “Dave” Macculloch Johnson lost his battle with leukemia at the age of 73. He had been battling the disease for about a year. His parents, Willard Barron Johnson and Marjorie Winter Johnson, raised him in Palo Alto, California, after moving there when he was young. He was born on December 27, 1948, in Summit South, New Jersey. David moved back to The Bay and Northern California after graduating with a business degree from Lewis & Clark College. He worked as a food salesman, a real estate agent, and then as a Real Estate/Personal Injury attorney for the rest of his life, working alongside his paralegal (and wife), Pamela Johnson. Pamela Johnson was also David’s wife.
He was a local politician in Cameron Park, serving as President of the Board of Directors for a period of twelve years and also holding the position of President of the El Dorado County Bar Association. He was committed to establishing Cameron Park a unique community in which people might live.
Christa McAuliffe Park, where the community lights their holiday tree every year, is one of the projects that he worked on or choreographed. Another project that he worked on or orchestrated is the new Community Services District Center.
Dave enjoyed playing cribbage as a competitive game in his spare time, and he was successful enough to win several boards and trophies during his time competing in tournaments. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Pamela Johnson, who resides in Cameron Park, as well as their son, David William Johnson, who is 41 years old and lives in Las Vegas. He was predeceased by his parents, his sister Susan Lanning, as well as his brother Willard Johnson. His parents, sister, and brother all passed away before him. An announcement on a Celebration of Life will be made later. If you are able to make a contribution, please send it to the Leukemia Research Foundation, Inc.
