Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, he was a US Army Veteran having served honorably in Desert Shield/Desert Storm with the 101st Airborne Division (Screaming Eagles). After his time in the military Kevin returned to school and became a Radiologic Technologist and worked in X-ray departments in New Mexico and Arizona. Kevin had a passion for the outdoors and was at his happiest when he was camping or fishing.

Kevin is survived by his daughter, Sheridan Johnson and her mother, Audrey Oxendine; mother, Irene Marietta; sister, Christine Sanchez and husband, Frank Sanchez; brother, Levi Johnson Jr., and wife, Michelle all of Albuquerque NM; his father, Levi Johnson Sr.; and brother, Lucas Johnson of Locust Grove, OK; nieces, Savannah Sanchez (Ramon Cordova), Cheyenne Sanchez (Tomas Majer), Kaila Johnson (Brandon Chauncey), Krista Johnson, Megan Sanchez (Anthony Lujan), Lauryn Johnson, Avilina Johnson, and Madyson Johnson; nephews, Isaiah Johnson and Malaki Mariscal; great-nieces, Xaelynn Johnson and Tahzana Frnco; great-nephews, Joaquin (JJ) Alderete, Josiah Cordova, Xavian Johnson, Cristiano Cordova, and newborn boys, Dominic Lucio Lujan and Xandyn Lee Johnson.
