September 3, 2009 : – – Jeff Johnson, one of the pioneering, modern-day waterman on the North Shore, whose efforts in starting the Grass Roots ‘Keep North Shore Country’ will always be remembered. Jeff sadly lost his battle with cancer on August 17, 2009.
Jeff Johnson was a devoted husband and father. He and Patti raised three sons who have also built loving families and who help to make the North Shore and the world a better place to live. Jeff was a craftsman and successful contractor. A Paddle Out from Ehukai Beach Park was held in his honor on Sunday, August 30th.
His vision and efforts to the North Shore and its lifestyle will always be remembered. Keep North Shore Country has come forth as the force that has kept massive development to the pristine area of Oahu, Hawaii. Keep the North Shore Country would not have been created without Jeff’s commitment to preserving the North Shore. His wise counsel as Vice President and Director will be sorely missed.
