Sadly, I heard the news from one of the North Shore lifeguards that Jeff Johnson had lost his battle with cancer. Jeff Johnson was a devoted husband and father. He and Patti raised three exemplary sons who have also built loving families and who help to make the North Shore and the world a better place to live. Jeff was one of the pioneering, modern-day waterman on the North Shore. He was a craftsman and successful contractor. The last time I saw Jeff was this past Spring, he was surfing in front of his house on the North Shore with two of his boys. I want to express my condolences to his family and thank him for his work in helping to Keep the Country, Country! May you catch lots of glassy waves in heaven!
