Oliver Henry Johnson, 2 1/2 year old precious son of Jared and Heather (Schiele) Johnson passed away on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at CHI, St. Alexius Hospital, Devils Lake. Oliver’s family gave the wonderful gift of life to others through organ donation.

Oliver Henry, sweet and spicy, made of snips and snails and puppy dog tails, was born in Devils Lake on October 18, 2017, the son of Jared and Heather (Schiele) Johnson. He was the youngest of the family of 3 boys.

Oliver’s beautiful smile, those big, bright, sparkling blue eyes melted the hearts of all who knew and loved him. He loved the outdoors, riding in the skid steer, playing basketball, fishing, playing fetch with Sadie and his other furry friends. Oliver had many friends at College Care for Kids and loved the staff who cared for him.

This precious life, this precious light in our lives, this precious child of God is gone from our sight, but always in our loving thoughts, grateful hearts and memory. Oh how we love you and miss you sweet son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin.
