Randall Lafollette Johnson

Contributor: MargieW Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

There isn't a day goes by that I don't think about my Dad or miss him, but I know that I will see him again. Randall LaFollette Johnson was born March 16, 1918 to Daniel and Della LaFollette Johnson in Burlington, Wyoming, he was their third born of four sons and two daughters. He grew up in Burlington, graduating from high school in 1938. He enlisted in the Navy, served throughout WWII, and was discharged in 1945. At Christmas of that year, he met Anna Pauline Olson and after a whirlwind courtship married her on February 16, 1946 in her family home in Lovell, Wyoming. Their union was sealed later in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, and in 1996, they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in a surprise party hosted by their eight children and their spouses. He attended Utah State Agricultural College on the GI Bill, graduated in 1950, and went to work for the Indian Service in South-Eastern Montana. After several years and job changes that took him to several towns in eastern Montana, he found himself in Eastern Idaho, living in Idaho Falls and, from 1963, working for the U.S. Farmers Home Administration. His work for the FmHA took him all over Idaho. He and his growing family lived in Idaho Falls, Sandpoint, Paul, Soda Springs, Blackfoot and Boise, where he retired from government service in 1981. In 1994, he and Anna moved from their home in Boise to their new home off Redwood Road in Salt Lake City, where they have lived since. A life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he served in many ward and stake callings through the years, served as a temple ordinance worker in the Boise Temple, and sent four sons and a daughter on missions.

Life timeline of Randall Lafollette Johnson

Randall Lafollette Johnson was born on 16 Mar 1918
Randall Lafollette Johnson was 2 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Randall Lafollette Johnson was 21 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Randall Lafollette Johnson was 40 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Randall Lafollette Johnson was 51 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.

Randall Lafollette Johnson was 71 years old when The tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million US gallons (260,000 bbl; 41,000 m3) of oil into Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing one of the most devastating man-made maritime environmental disasters. A tanker is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk. Major types of tankship include the oil tanker, the chemical tanker, and gas carrier. Tankers also carry commodities such as vegetable oils, molasses and wine.
