Hundreds remember park ranger killed in crash

The Associated Press

One week after his death, mourners packed a church to remember Edward G. Johanson — the state park ranger killed in a head-on collision last week.

The Kitsap Sun reports that Johanson’s family was joined by Gov. Chris Gregoire, firefighters, sheriff’s deputies, police officers and other first responders at Friday’s service.

Johanson was killed Feb. 24 when a 35-year-old Central Kitsap man crossed a centerline and hit Johanson’s car head on. The man was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide, but has not been charged because authorities are waiting for results of toxicology tests.

Gregoire commended Johanson’s dedication to transform Kitsap Memorial State Park near Poulsbo into a wedding destination.
