Gregory Johnson Obituary

Gregory Altis Johnson
If you met him, you loved him.

Gregory Altis Johnson passed away unexpectedly at his Pueblo West home on March
25, 2024. He was born in Salina, Kansas, on August 27, 1965, to Altis and Sharon (Walle)
Though Greg spent his early years in Kansas, he considered himself a Coloradoan after
moving to Greeley while in junior high; he even rooted for the Broncos when they played the
Chiefs. Greg graduated from Greeley West High School in 1983 and remained close friends
with several of his classmates. His capacity to love was tremendous – family, friends,
coworkers, St. Paul parishioners, volleyball parents… he charmed them all and gave from his
whole heart.
But Greg poured out his very best love on his wife Kristen and their precious daughters
Presley and Joie. Greg waited a long time to find Kris, and he was so thankful for the family and
the life they built together – he was living the dream. He spoiled Kris and their girls with his
kindness, patience, and excitement; he couldn’t stop beaming when Presley played her cello or
when Joie played volleyball. Greg was a beloved husband, a cherished dad, a thoughtful son, a
sweet brother, and a good friend.
Greg was happiest taking care of his family, and he worked hard to do that. He earned a
bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado just before his 30th high school
reunion; he went on to receive a master’s degree from Colorado State University. He was
proud of his work at American Medical Response and then Pueblo Community Health Center
where he was the best IT Director; he truly liked to help others – what a message for his
daughters. Greg was a terrific athlete and an avid outdoorsman; camping, hiking, and fishing
were his passions, but he could also be found swinging on the golf course, wakeboarding on the
lake, or twirling Kris around the dance floor. Greg’s sense of humor was the best, and his family
and friends will find comfort in sharing his funny jokes and adventures.
Greg is already missed by his wife Kris and their daughters Presley and Joie. Greg is
survived by his dad Altis Johnson, brother Mike (Julie) Johnson, sister Jennifer (Andrew) Holt,
mother-in-law Pat Cronk, brother-in-law Drew Michael (Wendy) Cronk, and by aunts, uncles,
cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends too numerous to count. Truthfully, if you met Greg, you
loved him.
Greg was preceded in death by his mom Sharon Johnson and his father-in-law Drew
