It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Charlie Johnson. Charlie was a dedicated servant of his community. In the over 30 years he has lived in Phelan, he has served on many committees, boards and focus groups, many of which helping to shape the future of the community which he loved so much. He was a founding member of the Tri-Community Kiwanis, instrumental in the formation of the Phelan Pinon Hills Community Services District in 2008, and has served as a PPHCSD Board Director for the majority of the 14 years the PPHCSD has been in existence.
Charlie was also passionate about youth soccer. He spent over 40 years as a volunteer for AYSO. He was a National Coach, National Referee, and held positions as an Area Director where he oversaw ten regions. He was also an AYSO United High Desert Communities Club Administrator for three years and most recently the Section 10 Management Administrator and advanced coach, referee and management instructor.
Services will be held at Saint Junipero Serra Catholic Church, 8820 Sheep Creek Rd in Phelan on July 1, 2022 at 10:00am. Following the services there will be a reception at the Phelan Community Center located at 4128 Warbler Rd also in Phelan. Any wishing to attend are welcomed.
