How Did We Do?

Joseph was born on February 4, 1919, in Columbus, North Dakota to Helmer and Marie (Sande) Johnson. He moved with his family from North Dakota to Rushford, MN in the early 1930s. He was a graduate of Rushford High School where he played football, baseball and was in the band. Joseph had three siblings: Marilyn Rislove, Lu Ebner and Glenn Johnson.

Welcome back home to Rushford, Joe. May you now rest in peace. Years ago, i stood over your sunken ship in Pearl Harbor. At the time did not know someone from Rushford was there.
