Darrell Myron Johnson was born (in the back bedroom of his grandpa’s house) in Falun on Aug. 1, 1939, to Beatrice Warner Johnson and Myron E. Johnson. He joined a brother, Wayne. His brothers Larry, Dennis and Brian followed in short order. Many years later sister, Cheryl (Daniels) was born.
Darrell graduated from Grantsburg High in 1957. He remained a true Packer fan his whole life. Darrell served in the US Army in Alaska, arriving just before the great Alaskan earthquake of 1964. He made his home there until 2007 when he and his wife, Jo Ann moved to Idaho to escape the cold Alaskan winters.
