Cash Eddie Johnson, age 4, of Froid, MT passed away on July 23, 2023, in Salt Lake City, UT as the result of a ranching accident.
Cash was born on April 9, 2019, in Sidney, MT the son of AJ and Kayla Johnson. Cash started walking when he was 10 months old, he knew he didn’t have time to waste. Although young, Cash brought so much joy to those that were around him, he had a way of making others feel special.
Cash loved being outdoors and helping his dad with ranch chores but would also remember to stop and pick his mom and sister’s flowers when he had the chance too. He was naturally talented at most everything he did shooting, throwing, roping, fishing and hunting. Cash was a lover of all animals especially his dogs, he was often heard saying “Awe, how cute” when he saw any baby animals, something he may have learned from his sisters.
Cash looked forward to the days when he got older so he could hunt bigger animals. He was a good shot, the first time he shot his .22 he hit the target, much to his dad’s surprise. (It wasn’t luck, he didn’t waste many bullets) He could fish all day, even if the fish weren’t biting. But when they were Oh boy! He enjoyed checking cows, tagging calves, brandings, riding horse, swathing, baling and fencing. He did it all and always found a way to have fun doing it.
Cash was sharp as a tack as well. One time he and dad were driving around checking on crops when dad spotted a moose in the field, so dad pointed it out to Cash which instantly excited him and he wanted dad to stop and shoot the moose (maybe one to many hunting shows) dad tried to explain to him that you need a tag to hunt something. Without missing a beat Cash reached down to the floor of the pickup and grabbed a bag of cattle tags and said, “We’ve got tags right here!”.
Although Cash’s life was too short, the time he was with us he lived to the fullest. Our lives are forever changed, and the road ahead will be difficult, but we thank God for the short time we had with our beloved Cash.
