1975 - June 1, 2007
David Kim Johnston, 32, died June 1, 2007, in Craig as result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
He was born in Craig on May 13, 1975, at The Memorial Hospital to Jeffrey Kim and Cathy Ann (Cantrell) Johnston.
David grew up in Craig attending school in the Moffat County School District at East Elementary School, Craig Middle School and Moffat County High School. He enjoyed band and playing football and soccer during his school years. He enjoyed movies, music, writing, drawing and doing calligraphy.
The happiest moment of his life came with the birth of his and Amanda Marie Jackson's daughter, Kaziah Marie Johnston, on June 20, 2003. David loved being her daddy, and that was his greatest accomplishment in life. He cherished the time spent with her, taking walks, playing in the park, reading to her, playing games or just talking.
David worked at a variety of jobs in the Craig area from a management position at City Market to delivering packages for UPS this past winter. At the time of his death, he was working for Southwest Construction as a laborer.
David will be remembered for his smile, quick wit and always knowing when a family member, friend or acquaintance needed a hug, kind word or shoulder to lean on.
Words cannot express the sadness and emptiness his loss has brought to family and friends.
