Hansford County remains in shock after learning that David Truitt Johnson, 36, of Spearman, TX, died on County Road 18 west of Rocky Ford, CO at about 5:30 p.m. on September 13, 2010.
David, a pharmacist, and his wife, Sandi, purchased Gordonís Drug in September of 2003. He was very well liked and respected in his community. His wife and their five children, Steven, Carlee, Mattee, Suzee and Dixee, are and will remain in our thoughts and prayers. May God hold them in His arms and heal the sorrow that they feel and may time accomplish what no words can.
Funeral services for David Johnson will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 18, 2010 at the Morse Baptist Church. Graveside services and interment will be at 4 p.m. at Hillcrest Cemetery in McLean, TX, under the direction of Boxwell Brothers Funeral Home of Spearman.
