Remembering the late Alex Johnson

Wesley Rhodes

Veterans & Family Services Office


During my time at Sherman Indian High School in Riverside CA, in the early 70`s, I knew of Alex Johnson. He was involved in every sport and gave each his all. After graduating Alex enlisted in the Marine Corps out of high school.


After boot camp he returned to Sherman Indian School and reunited with some of the students and coaches before being sent to Infantry Training School at Camp Pendleton CA.


It was very gratifying to be of assistance to Mr. Tony Peterson to give him some closure and the news of Alex`s passing.


Mr. Peterson thought highly of Alex, as he put it he was a quiet leader. The Veterans & Family Service Office is very appreciative to have the support of the Gila River Indian Community. With a great staff we are here to serve, any questions please call. Office# 520 562 3389
