Steven G. Johnson, 70, Topeka, passed away Sunday July 11, 2021 at Midland Hospice House. Steven was born November 10, 1950 in Manhattan Kansas. He was the son of Gaylord and Ruth “Salley” Johnson of Silver Lake, KS. He spent his early years in Randolph and moved to Silver Lake when he was 10.

Steven enjoyed nothing more than his mom’s apple pie and fried chicken. He also always asked for Hershey chocolate bars, Oreo cookies and Cheese Nips whenever a holiday was approaching.

Great niece and nephews Jayna, Matt Formas and Kaden, Keaton Peterson. He is preceded in death by his parents, Gaylord and Ruth Johnson.
