David Ross Johnston (aka Swoop) April 29, 1949 – May 14, 2022


We are sad to announce that Dave passed away on May 14, 2022, at Markham Stouffville Hospital. He fought hard. We will miss you so much big guy!


Dave was born to Evelyn and Bill Johnston and was raised in Agincourt. Following school, Dave enjoyed a very successful, lengthy career at IBM.


He leaves behind the love of his life, Judy, wife of 45 years. Their lives were blessed with son, Lee (Ashley) and daughter, Brooke (Drew) whom Dave was most proud of.
In recent years, he was thrilled to welcome and be Papa to five beautiful grandchildren: Olivia, Brayden, Leo, Reese, and Carter who sparked his life and brought him so much joy.
