Dad always wanted to be remembered as an “old hippy.” He really loved the outdoors. He was a true sportsman, who loved all things hunting and fishing. He was great at sharing that passion with friends and family and taught many members of the community how to appreciate these pastimes.
He is preceded in death by his parents: Curtis and Bertha Courtney; Glen and Dorthy Johnson.
He is survived by former wife Rosemary Davidson of Hawley, Texas and their two children, Trevor Courtney (Casady) of Edmond, Oklahoma and Taylor Roberts (Chase) of Wichita Falls, Texas; two grandchildren, Bennett Courtney and Lily Roberts; sister Sharon Tidwell of Junction City, Kansas; brother Chuck and Shelly Johnson of Tea, South Dakota.
