Ralph E. Johnson, 80

Ralph E. Johnson, age 80, of Edina, formerly of Dassel, passed away Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018.

Funeral services will take place Friday, Oct. 19 at 3 p.m. at the Cremation Society of MN, 7110 France Ave. S., Edina, with visitation beginning at 2 p.m., prior to the service.

Ralph was born Nov. 4, 1937, in Dassel, to Algot and Olga Johnson.

He graduated from the Dassel High School, and served in the Air Force.

Ralph married in 1962, and raised two daughters in Minneapolis, while working as an assessor for the City of Edina.

He was an accomplished musician, and a car enthusiast, with a brilliant mind, and, some would say, a warped sense of humor.

Ralph is survived by his wife of 56 years, Lynnette (Anders); daughters Cynthia (Richard) Beane, and Jennifer; six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; a brother, Robert (Andre); and many other relatives and friends.
