Charles Scott Johnston was born on May 2, 1961 and raised in Hermosa Beach and a resident of Redondo Beach for the past twenty years. CJ/ Charlie was passionate about many things including life, family, friends, fitness and rescuing many German Shepherds over the years. He loved the ocean and the beach and surfing, paddling, rowing and cruising the Strand to catch beautiful sunsets. He was a gifted tradesman and project manager and never stopped learning, a real student of life. He always challenged himself to be his absolute best in everything.
He lost his fight to a rare form of cancer, but he won the battle everyday as he never gave in and never gave up. He reminded us daily that we only have today and to always be present in the moment. He embraced all of the support, hope, love and faith from those around him and was truly grateful for all of these gifts. His life was taken away too soon, but his spirit will live on in our hearts forever. He was an amazing brother, son, colleague and friend and he will be deeply missed.
