Tim Johnson, a beloved man, friend, husband, brother, father, son, will be missed by every life he touched. There are those few people who, if you are lucky enough, cross your path and really inspire you to be the best you can possibly be. There is as much to celebrate about this man as there is to mourn. Sadly, after a fierce battle with cancer, Tim passed away Sunday the 21st of October, 2012, at the young age of 52. Preceded in death by his mother Patricia Moffett Johnson and his father Robert Earl Johnson of Noti, Oregon. Tim is survived by his wife of 20 years Megan Green Johnson of Franklin, his young children Jack and Ceynor Johnson, as well as sisters Kristi Roberts and Paula Goodspeed who reside in California, brother Mark Johnson of Veneta, Oregon, and in laws Lewis and Sandra Green of Brentwood, TN and a plethora of extended family and friends, all who love him very much. Tim grew up in Noti, Oregon. He attended Willamette University on a wrestling scholarship and later transfered to and graduated from the University of Oregon Go Ducks!. Tim then spent several years in Japan teaching English and developing a love of sushi. One of his greatest passions was traveling which led him to places such as Thailand, Italy, The Netherlands, the U..K. and Mexico to name a few. In 1989, Tim moved permanently to Nashville to pursue a career in music. He was an amazing songwriter, but more than that, a sweet human being with an indelible spirit and wit who touched so many hearts. As a constant believer in chasing the dream, he was quick to inspire new singers and songwriters. Tim’s brilliance lifted our spirits and made us think.

He was also an affiliate of the Songwriter Institute and co founder of The Song Trust. Tim was very active in the community contributing his talent to raise money for all types of charities including the 4-H of Williamson County, MusiCares, Saddle Up!, and countless others. His vast generosity enriched the lives of so many. With a legacy of family, love and songs, Tim Johnson’s mark on this life is immeasurable.
