Obituary for David Gary Johnson

JOHNSON, David (Dave) Gary, 79, of Nicholasville passed away January 30, 2018 from complications related to lymphoma cancer. Born April 13, 1938 in Ary, KY to the late William C. and Ruby Smith Johnson, Dave was a retired Captain with the Lexington Fire Department where he retired after 30 years of service.
Dave was a member of Jessamine Christian Church and Lone Oak Golf Club. Known as “Dancin’ Dave” to his friends and golf buddies, he had a wonderful voice and enjoyed performing both in the church choir and at karaoke night gatherings with friends Hugh Cantrell and Charlie Johnson. He enjoyed playing golf whenever he had the chance, especially with his long-standing golf partners John Spickard, Steve Johnson, Jim Sprinkle, Lyn Brunker, and Chuck Kelly. Dave even scored a hole-in-one at the golf course at Lone Oak. He will be remembered by all as a funny, cheerful, generous, and loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
Dave is survived by his wife, Linda Ritchie Smart Johnson, of Nicholasville; two daughters, Gari Lynn Johnson (John) Davenport, of Lexington, and Christi Smart (Ed) Twaddell, of Jaffrey, NH; and four grandchildren, Scott Brown, Cody Bronaugh, Maggie Twaddell, and Elizabeth Twaddell.
Memorial Service will begin at 3 P.M. followed by a Celebration of Life and reception from 4-6 P.M. on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Clark Legacy Center in Brannon Crossing in Nicholasville. Memorial contributions may be made to Jessamine Christian Church or Bluegrass Hospice Care (formerly Hospice of the Bluegrass).
