Obituary of Jeffrey O Johnson

Jeff O. Johnson was born on October 11, 1966, in Omaha, Nebraska to Peggy and Rod Johnson.

He passed away suddenly on November 29, 2023.

Jeff attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln where he earned his undergraduate degree in science. He continued to study at the University of Nebraska Medical Center where he earned his Doctorate in dentistry. After graduation, he moved to Colorado Springs, CO where he began his 30-year career in dentistry. He practiced dentistry with a high level of skill, kindness, and gentleness thus fostering a sense of family among his staff and patients. He was honored to be a part of and serve the communities in the Fountain CO area.

Jeff was an Eagle Scout and was known for his easy-going nature, quick wit, and vast knowledge of many topics. He had an extremely sharp memory, allowing him to memorize entire movie scripts and music albums. He could remember everything, including every hole in golf he had ever played. In the spring, you could find him cheering for Cubs baseball, and in the fall he would be wearing Husker red on Saturdays.

An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting, golfing, fly fishing, and skiing; teaching others to love these sports as well. His happiest days were time spent with his sons. He was a great storyteller and loved telling jokes; making other people laugh came easily to Jeff.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Judy; sons, Ryne, Tyler, and Trevor; mother Peggy of Omaha; sister, Jill Bodwell (Jamie) of Omaha; brother, Jay of Omaha; parents-in-law Gary and Elsie Peeks of Hot Springs Village, AR; nieces; nephews; extended family; and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Rod Johnson.

His premature passing leaves a void for all who cherished him.
