Donald Kim Johnson

Donald Kim Johnson, 67, of Owensboro passed away Monday, June 26, 2023, under the care of Hospice of W. Kentucky. The Daviess County native was born March 30, 1956, to Donald J. Johnson and the late Anna Lee Young Johnson. Kim graduated from Owensboro Catholic High School, class of 1974. He worked as a Union industrial painter through Local 156 out of Evansville. Earlier in life, Kim was employed at Foodland then Frank Miller Sporting Goods where he fueled his passion for fishing and hunting. Kim was said to fish two hundred and golf one hundred days a year and, in his opinion, was one of the best pan fishermen in the state. As a laid back and humble man, he was a man of few words, but when he spoke, he spoke his mind. Kim was an avid UK and St. Louis Cardinals fan and enjoyed going to the horseraces. As his parents aged and especially after his mother passed away in 2018, Kim became the primary caregiver for his father.

Those left to cherish his memory include his father, Donald Johnson of Owensboro; six siblings, Suzanne Denton of San Ramon, CA, Jeffrey L. Johnson (Jennifer) of Hawesville, Kelly Johnson (Nancy) of Owensboro, Brian Johnson (Elizabeth) of Lexington, Andy Johnson (Monica) and Mary Ann Johnson both of Owensboro; numerous nieces and nephews who he treated like his own kids.

A Memorial service for Kim Johnson will be noon Saturday, July 1 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with visitation from 10:00 am until the time of the service.
