Posted: November 10, 2015 - 10:22 am

Gregory Scott Johnston born September 30, 1970 was taken from us too soon on November 4, 2015 after a 10-month battle with leukemia. A life-long resident of Camano Island, Greg loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and his family, demonstrating his love by throwing rolls at us at the dinner table, making fun of us, and being there in any circumstance we could have possibly needed him. His passions included gardening and reading westerns until midnight, which he then got others hooked on as well. He graduated from Stanwood High School in 1988, having maintained a youth balanced in trouble-making and being irresistibly adorable, and began a career at Weyerhauser, where he earned the nickname 'Pooh Bear' It was impossible to not simultaneously notice his gentle, kind, and generous nature in contrast to his grizzly bear build.
