WILLIAM STUART “BILLY” JOHNSON

Print


William Stuart “Billy” Johnson passed away in his sleep on the first anniversary of his father’s passing. Billy was born in Butte, on December 10, 1953, to William L. and Delores A. (Stuart) Johnson. He attended St. John’s Grade School. He graduated from Butte High School and earned his bachelor’s degree in counseling from the University of Great Falls. 

He worked road construction before starting his career in chemical dependency counseling.  He worked at Montana Mental Health Clinic, and at the WATCH Program.  

He and Cheryl Boggess were married in Butte in 1975 and together had two sons.  They later divorced.  He spent his younger years hunting, fishing, camping and had a love of fast cars and motorcycles.   But, with age came wisdom and sensibility and William soon became a mentor and roll model to several people.  He loved spending time outdoors, camping, hunting and fishing with his sons.  He had a passion for digging crystals and spent nearly every weekend with his sons in search of nature’s hidden treasures.  He had a profound love for his family and was a loving grandfather. He truly and completely devoted himself and is life to his family.  Each day he would stop in to check on his boys and almost every week he was taking his grandkids on an adventure.  Nothing meant more to Bill than his family.  He made it his ministry to put other people’s needs before his own and will be deeply missed by his friends and family.

Survivors include his sons and daughter-in-law, Zachary and Mindy Johnson and Justin Johnson of Butte, his grandchildren, Rheanna and Eli Johnson, several nieces and nephews including Tommy Johnson and Mitchell (Tammy) Tamietti who were like his own sons.  Also surviving are his siblings:  Daniel Johnson, Thomas and Beverly Johnson of Butte, Georgia Johnson and Don Tamietti of Pipestone and his mentor and cousin, Rick Has The Pipe. He is preceded in death by his parents William and Delores Johnson.

Cremation has taken place.  Funeral mass will be celebrated Thursday morning at 11 o’clock in St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.  His family will receive friends beginning at 10 o’clock.  Express condolences at www.wayrynen-richards.com.
