Celebrate Mike Johnson's life

Family, friends and acquaintances of Mike Johnson, the Forest Grove-area carpenter and community volunteer who died Nov. 6 in Portland, can attend a "Remembrance and Celebration" of his life Sunday, Jan. 31, at La Hacienda, 2020 Main St. in Forest Grove.

"Mike installed a storefront window here over 16 years ago and loved that it still looks newly installed. As we all know, of course it does," reads the announcement brought to the News-Times by Anya Doll, Johnson's wife.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. and the service will begin at 1:30, "followed by desserts, music and spirits to celebrate Mike's joyful presence in our lives," reads the notice, ending "Please come, as Mike always did, wearing whatever feels comfortable to you."
