Donald Earl Johnston

April 5, 1933 �" September 8, 2015

Donald Earl Johnston was born in Canada on April 5, 1933. His family moved to Detroit when Don was young and that is where Don lived until the age of 30. He then moved to Los Angeles before settling in San Francisco in 1969 and living in the Tenderloin.

Don's top hobby was tattoos and his body was covered with them. He was a big fan of the Coast to Coast radio show and knew all about angels, UFOs, Planet X, aliens, and Bigfoot. Don took pleasure in plants and flowers and considered himself a botanist. He savored visits to the arboretum/botanical gardens. Don enjoyed seeing movies and his favorite theater was the AMC 1000. His favorite character of all time was Pee Wee Herman and he had several Pee Wee Herman items. He was fond of classical music and loved Mozart and Beethoven and could identify many of their pieces by hearing them.

Don passed away from cancer on September 8, 2015. Don's friends prefer to think he is in heaven in a garden enjoying meat loaf, mashed potatoes, and flan with his friends who passed before him.
