Bench dedication honors Ryan Lee Johnson

Aloha community will gather at Bale's Thriftway Saturday night

The public is invited to attend a dedication Saturday night honoring Ryan Lee Johnson, a 22-year-old Aloha High School alumnus who was fatally shot Jan. 26 outside the Bales Thriftway in Aloha.

Johnson's family, friends and members of the community will gather in front of the store at 17675 S.W. Farmington Road beginning at 7 p.m. to dedicate a memorial bench that will be placed Friday where the young father was killed.

This is a chance for community to come together to share stories and create a new memory at the bustling shopping center.
