David A. Johnson went home to be with the Lord on Monday, January 1, 2018. He was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on January 25, 1941. Dave spent 20 years managing stores for Napa Auto Parts in Minnesota and 20 years for C & H Motor Parts in Placerville, California. An avid mechanic, Dave was famous for his ability to fix anything with moving parts, and for collecting and restoring classic cars.

He holds the record for the fastest shooter in Hangtown, California and was a lifelong Vikings fan.

He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter Julie and is survived by his loving wife of more than 52 years, Sue, by his sister Jean Fong, his brother-in-law Dennis Rachel, and many nieces and nephews.

At Dave's request, services will be held privately, with family only.

Memorial gifts may be made in Dave's honor to Snowline Hospice or to El Dorado County SPCA.
