Tristan Murdock Johnson, 19, was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, September 25, 2016. He fought bravely at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, California for 12 days before joining our family and Father in Heaven on Friday, October 7, 2016.

Born on April 3, 1997, in Nacogdoches, Texas to Steve and Kathy Johnson, Tristan lived and died fiercely and courageously. His love for life kept him at the center of our hearts and at the edge of this world. He gave freely to everyone he encountered, and he died with the same kindness and generosity we all know and love. Tristan passed on his strong, fighting spirit, but also several major organs to those in need. Multiple people are alive through the strength, love, and generosity of our boy. Nothing makes losing him any easier, but we take solace in his courage and try to emulate it every day. We love you more than words, Trat. You're in our hearts and souls always.

Tristan is preceded in death by his grandfather Herbert Murdock and grandparents John T. and Vi Johnson as well as uncle Tom Johnson. Tristan is survived by his loving family: parents Kathy Murdock Johnson and Steven Mark Johnson, sisters Jordan and A'na Johnson, brother Micah Johnson, grandmother Verna Murdock, aunt Patsy Murdock Cagle, cousin Laurie Edwards, and family friends Siobhan Cooke and Samantha Salazar. Tristan was also blessed with many extended family members and an ever-expanding family of friends.
