With deepest sorrow, we announce that Kevin Wayne Johnson, age 18, our most beloved son has died as a result of a motorcycle accident on Friday, March 22, 2019. Those who knew Kevin, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. Kevin was born on July 28, 2000, in Hastings, NE the son of Heather Rowbal and Tom Johnson. He graduated from Sandy Creek High School in 2018, where he participated in FFA, drama, and played football.

Kevin was currently employed with Metalcast Corp. in Hebron, NE and was a member of the Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department. Kevin was baptized at First Congregational Church in Hastings on July 24, 2005, and was confirmed on May 4, 2014. Kevin was confident, had beautiful hazel eyes, a broad smile, an infectious laugh, fantastic wit, and the ability to engage and forge a relationship with anyone. He was always willing to help anyone in need. Kevin had a love of animals and held a special place in his heart for his horse Red and dog Dusty. Kevin was a loving and wonderful son, brother, boyfriend, uncle, and grandson. He will be missed greatly for the rest of our lives. We know Kevin is now with grandpa Bob and is loved here on earth as well as in heaven.

We LOVE and MISS YOU so much my son. XOXO

Kevin was preceded in death by his grandfather, Bob Johnson, and grandmother, Diane Hough.
