It was a great day to celebrate

The 24th Annual Stariski Horseshoe Tournament and Celebration of Life for Chuck Johnson, was held Aug. 12. Oh, what a beautiful day. Sunshine, 65 degrees, a light breeze for bug control and many shared memories of a special mans life.

Winners of the tournament were first place, Jay Wright and Don Josten; second place, Andre Drake and Cody Mishler; and third place, Janet Mullen and Chelsa Johnson.

Rosie, Corie, Chelsa and Michael Johnson would like to thank all our family and friends who attended the event. The food, chairs, tables, and especially hugs and smile were so heartwarming. You have all helped us deal with our loss. A special thank you to Tom Echenrod, Carole and Gailen Johnson for organizing the tournament; Bear Creek Winery for the wonderful wine and beer donation; The 8 Mile Band for the use of their equipment and the great music they provided love you guys.

Our biggest thank you goes to Chuck, for sharing his life with us all. We miss you and love you.

Rosie Johnson
