Deward Johnson, 83, husband of Mary Johnson, died Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at Good Samaritan, Puyallup, Washington. Born Oct. 4, 1932, near Versailles, he was the son of local tobacco farmers Agnes and Howard Johnson. He was a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force. He graduated from Versailles High School with honors and was the senior class president. He attended the University of Kentucky, where he majored in agricultural studies. He also enrolled in the Air Force ROTC program. After graduation and with a growing family to support, he became a full-time transport pilot, flying cargo all over the world. During his military career, he lived in Europe and taught at Texas A&M University. After his retirement from the Air Force, he settled his family in the Tacoma, Wash., area and became a real estate investor. He enjoyed golf, playing bridge, and walking daily at the South Hill Mall with his friends. In addition to his wife, he is survived by a brother, Revel; a son, Steve (Cammele); a daughter, Suzanne Hodgson (Mike); two granddaughters, Sarah and Megan; his adopted son, Johnathan; and three cousins, Charlene Wethington and Barbara Roark, both of Woodford County, and Bill Todd, Naples, Fla.
