July 13, 1989 - July 4, 2017
Memories and Reflections on the Life of Brenton Loren Johnson… Brenton Loren Johnson was born on July 13, 1989, to loving parents Katherine L. and Timothy L. Johnson. He was the youngest of three children. As a young boy, he was quiet but also full of wit. He loved to play outside, play video games, ride his bike, joke and hang out with family and friends. Brenton was athletic and played on a baseball and soccer team. In his older years he was known to play a mean game of basketball. He would use his long arms to steal the ball and score, all in a flash! Brenton was very thoughtful and highly intelligent. In his academic pursuits he attended Paloma Elementary School, San Marcos Middle School and graduated from Mission Hills High School, class of 2007. He also completed coursework at Palomar Community College. Brenton was a man of deep conviction and strong faith. He attended North Park Apostolic Church and City of Faith with his parents. At the age of 13, he dedicated his life to Christ and was baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and filled with the Holy Ghost. Brenton was a multi-faceted man with many talents and interests. He worked at Kids on Campus (KOC) after school care for over 10 years. His co-workers and the kids he influenced were greatly impacted by his presence. He was a writer of short stories and had an interest and openness to learning. He wanted to travel and sight see as often as he could. He had a love for history, a zeal for social causes and an awareness of injustices in the world. He even expressed an interest in becoming a professor or a teacher. He also had a passion for modeling, art and photography. He was a competitive board game player and could give you a run for your money in the games of Life, Scrabble, and Scattegories. He loved to watch movies - he watched Titanic at least 4 times at the movie theatre alone! He was a lover of all types of music but especially Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kirk Franklin. He enjoyed playing video games and most of all he was a Pokémon enthusiast. He made Pokémon a thing before it even became popular. Brenton will be remembered for his loving, kind, caring, calming spirit. His generosity, sincerity, humility and genuineness was unparalleled. He was a TRUE friend. He was giving and shared with others his laughter, his smile, his words of wisdom, and his love of family. Brenton’s sense of humor was second to none! Memories such as Saran wrapping his friend’s cars, scaring his friends and sisters by hiding behind a door and jumping out just as someone walked in the room, or leaving a fake snake in the bathroom to scare Bianca were some of his hallmarks. He even had a silly side. He would still turn flips in the house even though he was 6’1. There are still dents in the wall to prove it! Brenton was down to earth, forgiving and concerned for the wellbeing of others. He would check on his friends, and offer words of faith and hope to them. He was a dog lover and proud dog manny to Taz and a great dog uncle to Bella and Lucy. Above all, he LOVED God and his family. He would bring coffee to his mom in the morning, and make sure she had a lap scarf if she showed too much knee at church! He was protective and mindful of his big sisters and he respected and aspired to be a man of God like his father. He just had a deep love for all people – especially his family, and always wanted them to come together. Left to cherish his legacy and memory are his mother and father Katherine and Timothy Johnson; his sisters Bianca and BrittneyJohnson; grandmother Dr. Betty L. Givens; the dogs: Taz, Bella and Lucy; and a great host of aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and friends.
