A strong man of faith, Nathan and his family currently attended Victory Church in Fairborn and he had also served as a deacon at First Baptist Church-Fairborn. He participated in youth soccer growing up and enjoyed teaching his children how to play. Family was most important to Nathan and he lived for his wife, six children, and entire family.

Savannah, age 15, and Karaline, age 13, the two oldest daughters of Nathan and Jamie (Amos) Johnson, passed away with their father in a tragic auto accident on June 29, 2023. Savannah was born February 28, 2008 in Jacksonville, Florida and Karaline on November 2, 2009 in Lexington, Kentucky.
An aspiring cosmetologist, Savannah was always looking for a willing volunteer to let her practice her hair and makeup skills and was always giving her sisters manicures. Savannah was in the Teachers in Training program at MVDC, having the desire to become a dance teacher one day.
Karaline had the gift of humor and was always able to make people laugh with her jokes and funny demeanor. As an animal lover, Karaline wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up.
They both had a love for dance and were current members of the top tier Miami Valley Dance Center's Dance Force team. Savannah and Karaline were the best big sisters, loving daughters and granddaughters, and thoughtful friends to all who knew and loved them. Their legacy will live on in the many lives they touched in their short time on this earth.
