Liam Wyatt Johnston

March 18, 2013 — January 6, 2024

On January 6, 2024 the Angels took little Liam from this troubled world. Liam was born March 18, 2013, to join sister Kaylen and brothers Kaige, DeJay and Keagin. Little brother Ezra arrived 2 years later.

Liam was fond of camping, rock collecting, skateboarding, and deer hunting, bagging a 3-point buck this season with one shot. He also enjoyed skiing, sledding, and making forts. He was not a fussy eater, favoring sandwiches, chips, hot Cheetos, and Grandma's spaghetti salad. In lemon eating contests he won hands down without flinching. Soccer and wrestling were chosen sports for this little left-hander. He was a methodical mind adult oriented with no reluctance to do homework and go to bed early. Sister called him Little Man. He liked his quiet time alone, science, galactic phenomena, and advanced-age movies. Simple things satisfied him, and his color was red, then went to blue because that was Dad's color. He wanted to grow up and work where Dad works. He had a gentle nature and was easily hurt if scolded and sometimes would take the blame to ease punishment on his brothers. Liam complained very little. He kept a clean room and was irritated if his brothers messed it up. When picking one present to open before Christmas morning came, he chose a small present while the others grabbed large ones. Liam had a sharp, witty mind and loved telling jokes and great stories to classmates and sharing slime. A few things made him mad, but he could not stand bullies, fighting back despite being smaller. He loved clothes, dressing up fancy, and grooming. He stole a fancy vest from Kaige and wore it at every dress-up occasion. He loved to play with his siblings' hair. Liam had a reserved and meticulous mind. He was great at Legos and would hide his favorite things. He could be mischievous and loved pulling tricks. He liked Marshmallow, Imagine Dragons, and the songs Big Bad John and Seven Years. Music was his favorite class where he played clarinet and was very protective of his ukulele. He had all the sound effects of play fighting and a two-tone whistle. Wolves were his favorite animal and he had names for all his stuffed animals which he adored.

This little fellow will be sorely missed.

Liam is survived by his parents Kalem & Sarah Johnston of Lewistown, mother Anna Scharen of Florida grandparents Kleiv & Bernice Johnston of Lewistown, and Bobby & Tamina Abbott of Lewistown, grandmother Penny Diaz of Florida, grandfather Tory Scharen, sisters Kaylen Johnston of Lewistown, and Gabriella Nelson of Columbus, brothers Kaige Johnston, DeJay Johnston, Keagin Johnston, Ezra Johnston, Mycheal Sereday, and Troy Scharen all of Lewistown and Ajay Nelson of Columbus, Liam is also survived by numerous aunts and uncles.
