Goodbye, Dean

28 Jul

We are terribly saddened by the passing of our friend, Dean Johnson.

You may remember Dean’s soothing voice on KNIA/KRLS, our local radio station, guiding us, with his co-anchor — most lately Alex Rusciano — through the morning news, the obituaries and school lunches, and of course the severe weather alerts that keep us glued to the radio.

You may also remember Dean as one of the poets at our Next Chapter poetry slams, and sometimes during the Autumn Studio Tour.  His poems were usually short and sweet, but packed a punch couched in the profound nature of everyday things and the immediacy of extraordinary moments.

We’ll miss your voice and your perspective, Dean.  Go in peace.
