Kenneth G. Johnston
Kenneth G. Johnston, 58, of Northville, passed away on July 23, 2021, at Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home. Kenneth was born on June 25, 1963, in Ridgewood, NJ, to Lawrence and Madelyn Johnston. Originally from Mahwah, NJ, Kenneth came upstate to enjoy the Adirondacks and the GSL in his 20s and knew this is where he’d want to spend his beautiful life. Kenneth was a very talented man. He had a passion for his career as a heavy collision and paint specialist. He enjoyed doing anything that had to do with motors but was a jack of all trades, he loved to do anything really. He was a family man who loved his parents and daughter dearly. He enjoyed listening to his favorite bands like AC/DC and Nickelback with his huge speakers in his house blaring so all of the neighborhood could hear. Oh, his snacks. He loved his snacks and candy. He was also very fond of street bikes, anyone who knew him, knew that. There was one thing though that Kenneth adored more than anything in this life, his daughter Sarah. Kenneth and Sarah had a relationship like no other and had a very special bond that will never change, she will miss him dearly and will make sure his memory lives on in every way. Kenneth was an amazing man with a personality and humor some people might say “better than anyone they have ever met.” Despite all of the curveballs life threw at him, he always stayed strong and kept a positive attitude. He defied all odds. His family and friends will miss him very much and will cherish all of the great memories they have with him.
Kenneth is survived by his parents, Lawrence and Madelyn Johnston, Northville; his daughter, Sarah Johnston, Northville and his ex-wife, Margaret Johnston, Northville, who he remained close to and had many great moments with throughout the years.
Visitation will be held on August 4, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Northville Funeral Home, 401 Bridge Street, Northville. Rest In Peace Daddy, I love you so much. “Dream as if you’ll live forever; live as if you’ll die today.” Love, Sarie.
