Carl Cale Johnson passed away on October 19, 2017, in Auburn, California, at the age of 48. Born in Billings, MT, Carl spent his youth traveling across the country with his military family, living in seven different states and the Republic of Panama. He earned his bachelor's degree in finance from Virginia Tech and his master of arts in teaching from University of Alaska, Juneau.

Named the Sacramento City Unified District Teacher of the Year in 2011, Carl was a dedicated math teacher for 17 years. An avid ultrarunner, running on the trails during his travels and close to his current home brought Carl great joy. Carl had many other passions including taking trips to Montana, reading and rock hounding, but his greatest love was his daughter, Marie (14).

Carl is survived by his daughter Marie; father Thomas Johnson; stepmother Karen Johnson; and sister Linda Wilson, as well as his niece and nephew, his aunt and uncles and dozens of beloved cousins. He was preceded in death by his mother, Kathleen Johnson.

Carl's memorial service is open to everyone who knew and loved him. The service will be on Saturday, November 4th, 2017 at 9:30 am at Auburn Presbyterian Church at 13025 Bel Air Dr, Auburn, CA 95603. Before the service, from 8:30-9:15 am, friends and family are invited to share stories and watch a slideshow celebrating Carl's life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Auburn Presbyterian Church Youth Program for community service related projects and trips.
