Superman Crew tribute to Ron Johnston
Thank you for visiting our Parkinson's Foundation Moving Day page in memory of our dad, Ron Johnston AKA Superman. Dad passed away after living with and fighting Parkinson's Disease for over 26 years. We have created this page in order to honor his courageous fight with Parkinson's and his long standing support of Parkinson's Foundation and Moving Day.
Ron was a loving husband to Angie, dad to 6, grandpa to 14, great-grandpa to 1. He was an executive with Bank of America for 37 years. He was a proud member of Kiwanis for 24 years, where he was involved in many fundraising events for his local community. He had many passions including; flying, sailing, restoring cars and participating in car shows. He loved building and flying radio controlled planes, and often got his many children and grandchildren involved. But above all, he was a family man, and he loved nothing more than a big family gathering and having everyone together.
He was diagnosed with Parkinson's 26 years ago at the age of 50. He faced his diagnosis with optimism, humor and courage. Even in the end, he was still making jokes, which we believed allowed him to live well beyond his prognosis.
Moving Day was near and dear to his heart, and he participated for 7 years. He raised thousands of dollars for Parkinson's foundation. He was a strong advocate, mentor and supporter.
To continue his legacy, his family will be supporters of Parkinson's Foundation and Moving Day. Thank you for helping us honor him and continue the fight against Parkinson's Disease. Together we can make a difffernce.
