Funeral Services

A Memorial Service will take place 1:00 PM Thursday, June 15, 2017 at Bethel Lutheran Church - Highlands Campus, 504 Frontage Rd., Hudson

Troy Curtis Johnson, age 49 of Hudson, a man of few words with a heart of gold passed away in a bad moment June 10, 2017 in Frederic, WI.  He was greeted with love at heaven’s gate by Grandparents Evert and Esther Bergstrom, Ben and Helen Johnson, uncles, Arnold and Gordy Johnson, Bruce Bergstrom, and cousin, Greg Rasmussen. 

Troy graduated from Hudson High School, the Class of 1986 and completed his degree at the University of Minnesota.  Troy married his high school sweet heart, Jennifer Bond and was blessed with three children, Benjamin, Anna, and Connor.  Troy worked as a superintendent of the Hudson Golf Course for many years.  He then took the position as Coordinator of Facility and Site Operations and Grounds for the Stillwater School District, and worked there until recent.  

Outside of his work, Troy enjoyed the peacefulness of the outdoors. He looked forward to planning weekly “field trips” to concerts, wineries, parks, and getaways to the North Shore. At home his passions included grilling, smoking his famous pork, mowing, gardening, and bonfires. 

He was a dedicated husband, father, son, brother, coach, and friend to many. He could always be found at the rink, ball field, or track cheering his kids on. His children meant the world to him.

Troy will remain in the hearts of his loving wife, Jennifer; children, Benjamin, Anna, and Connor; his parents, Curtis and Gloria Johnson; brother, Trevor; Jennifer’s parents, Joan and George Bond; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Jim and Sue Bond, Scott and Sue Warner; as well as nieces and nephews.  Along with aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, community members and so many more people than he could ever have realized.

There is no room for whys or regret, he would want us to move forward, and continue to live life to the fullest. 

A Memorial Service honoring Troy’s life will take place 1:00 PM Thursday, June 15, 2017 at Bethel Lutheran Church – Highlands Campus, 504 Frontage Rd., Hudson.  A Gathering of Family and Friends will take place from 11:00 AM until the time of the service Thursday at the church.  Interment will take place at Bethel Lutheran Church Columbarium following the service.  Memorials are preferred to the family.

    • Johnson family,
      Prayers for your family during this tragic time and in the weeks to come. Troy was a wonderful co-worker at HGC and impressed me by the way he was with people. The memories of him zooming into the parking lot on a cart and then off to do what needed to be accomplished see like just yesterday. He was a good man.

I love the Johnson family almost as much as my own. Anna has gone through her own struggles and still maintains to be the strongest woman I know. I will forever look up to her. Connor has always been one to put anyone in a good mood, regardless of his own current mood. So much love for the rest of the family as well. Remember he is always your guardian angel.

    • Jennifer, Curt, Gloria and Trevor,
      Sending my condolences on your loss. I will remember Troy as the fun, caring and happy guy that I grew up with. So many memories have come flooding back of camping, fishing, canoeing, and hanging out at the ball fields with Troy as a kid, with our group of friends that was like a big family.
      I know he will be missed by many.

      May peace be with you during this difficult time.

    • Gloria, Curt, Trevor, et al,
      Condolences from Everett, Washington. Sharon and I along with the entire family out west here want you to know that we are thinking of you at this difficult time. Words come hard at a time like this but just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    • Dear Jen, please accept our deepest condolences in the loss of Troy. Troy was a wonderful help for my kids growing up with out their farther. We too have many fond memories of Troy. Much love to you all. Be easy on yourselves as you work though so tough times ahead.

    • Gloria, Curt, Trevor, Jen and family please accept my families deepest apologies for your unexpected loss. I know words can not express what you are going through right now and I pray God gives you all the strength to get through this incredibly difficult time. It seems like just yesterday we were we shoveling off the ring in between periods of a peewee hockey game because we did not have an indoor arena and our parents were the Zamboni. So many incredibly fond memories that will never ever be forgotten. My families thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    • Jennifer and kids, Curt, Gloria and Trevor,
      Thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult journey.
      I know that words are inadequate at a time like this but I wanted you to know how very sorry I am for your loss. The loss of a spouse, father, son and brother is a tragic event. It is times like this that our faith is put to the test.

    • Curt, Gloria, Trevor, Jen, and family, my deepest sympathies.

      Troy, Trevor, myself, and my sister Sandy created many memories growing up together.

      We stayed in touch over the years through our families and social media.

      Here is a good memory. As I was sharing the news with my oldest daughter, she remembered when we did the ‘Hokey Pokey’ dance with Troy at his and Jen’s wedding reception.

      He was so incredibly happy. Jennifer, Curt, Gloria, and Trevor, please let those types of happy memories help you through this difficult time.

      I am sorry that I will be unable to make it on Thursday. You have all been in my thoughts all day and will continue to be in my thoughts in the coming days.

      Love and Hugs,

    • Words cannot express my sorrow for your loss. I cannot imagine what you are going through. I pray that you will have moments of physical and emotional peace when your mind and body can rest.

      Fond memories-Troy volunteering at Anna and Ben’s class parties. I especially remember how silly Ben would act whenever his dad was around.
      Family plus grandparents at baseball field as well as other events to cheer “A, B, C ” on. I’m certain no one child had as many fans at these events as Jenny and Troy.
      I deeply regret that I will not be there to support you on Thursday.
      I will be there in spirit as I am now.

    • Jennifer & Family:

      Please accept my most sincere and deepest condolences on the loss of Troy. Words are such insufficient things when we suffer the loss of a loved one that we hold so dear. May God grant you peace and hope as you find solace in the many memories you all shared.

      RIP Troy – I fondly remember standing shoulder to shoulder with you in the football huddles and classes some 35 years ago. You were a great teammate and will be missed by many.

      I am sorry I am unable to attend and express my sympathies to you all in person and celebrate Troy’s life.
