John was born in Anaheim, CA in 1957 and raised in Villa Park, CA. before his parents and four siblings settled in Thousand Oaks in 1971. John graduated from Newbury Park High School in 1975 and continued his education, receiving a BS in Business Administration at the University of LaVerne. John enjoyed working for the Ventura County Sanitation Dept. for 25 years as a Construction Inspector, but he mostly enjoyed spending time with his family, traveling, good food, and good music. He also enjoyed going to the gym and working around the house. There was very little time when you would not find him with his dog Blue. John also liked to volunteer regularly at community group events.

John is preceded in death by his father Charles L. Johnston, sister Christine J. Osborne, and brother Rick Johnston. He is survived by his wife Celeste Johnston of 7 years; son Reece and daughter Brooke Johnston; mother La Verne J. Merriken; brother Steve Johnston, sister Carolyn J. Christian and their families. John also enjoyed being a step-father and grandfather.

The Family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this very difficult time. John will be greatly missed by his family and many lifelong friends to whom all have special memories spent with John.

Services will be held at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Mortuary, Lindero Canyon Rd. on November 30 at 10:00 am. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to be made in John's name by contacting The .

"I am so sad to hear of John's passing. I think back to all the good times we had together. John was a great guy who never had an unkind word for anybody. ..." Greg Palmer (Post Falls, ID)
