    I moved into the Mesa 45th Ward when I was 16 years old and married and left the nest at 20 years old, so I only lived in this great ward for approximately four years. Those four years; however, made an impact on me, and Quinn Johnson was a standout in my mind. Every time I saw him he had a big smile on his face, and he was ALWAYS so warm and friendly. Even as a youth, I was well aware of his presence and how he made people feel… what a man! I remember babysitting for the Johnson family… how I loved the whole family! Margo is right up there with her husband. Thank you Quinn (and Margo) for truly making this world a better place… you will be missed dearly by so many, I’m sure. Sending my love and with a prayer in my heart for each of the surviving Johnsons. 😉
