Obituary

Darwin Johansen, 65, passed away Sunday, March 3, 2013 at his home in Des Moines. Darwin was born on August 13, 1947 to Louise and Ole Johansen in Latimer, Iowa and grew up on the family farm.

Darwin worked at Barton Solvents for almost 35 years and retired at the age of 55 to enjoy time with his family. He was a devoted Boy Scout leader for his grandsons and loved working with them on the annual Pinewood Derby races. He touched the lives of many and will always be remembered.

He is survived by his four children, Sherri, Melissa (Brian), Lisa and Brad; his eight grandchildren, Krystina, Dakota, Conner, Kaylie, Travis, Ryan, Shelby and Michael, and two great grandchildren, Emily and Jayden. He is also survived by a brother, Keith (Judy) of Indiana, 15 brothers and sisters in law and countless other family and friends.

His loving wife of 45 years, Kaye, and his parents Ole and Louise, preceded him in death.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, March 8 at the Windsor Heights Community Center at 6900 School Street, Windsor Heights. The family will receive friends at 2:00 followed by a memorial service at 3:30.
