Mike Johnson


Michael (Mike) Ray Johnson, 64, of Milaca, MN passed away unexpectedly at home on September 2, 2021.

Born in 1957, Mike spent his childhood in Lima, OH before moving to Superior, WI, in 1977, where he met his wife, Karen. The same year, he began a lifelong career in welding, working at Barko, Enbridge, and Genesis.

He loved hunting and fishing, visiting the many rivers and lakes of Minnesota and Wisconsin over the years.

Giving with his time, he could always be counted on to lend a helping hand. Whether it was a home renovation,  car issues, or just good old fashioned advice, Mike was always there. He adored his family, especially his grandson. They spent many morning hours playing cards or watching cartoons over breakfast.

Mike left the world too soon. A loving husband, father, and grandfather, he is greatly missed. His patience, generosity and kindness in life will be remembered for the rest of ours. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Karen, his three sisters, daughter Jessica, son-in-law Maciej, grandson Mathieson, and many nieces and nephews. 

A Celebration of Life will be held in June 2022 – the exact date will be announced.
