Charles Ralston "Chip" Johnston, 39, of Palm Harbor, Fla., formerly of Monaca, passed peacefully into eternal life on Friday, May 6, 2005. He was surrounded by family at Shands University of Florida Hospital, Gainesville, where he had fought a courageous battle waiting for a lung transplant due to his lifelong illness of cystic fibrosis. Born Dec. 30, 1965, in Rochester, he was a son of Charles D. Johnston and his wife, Marilynn of Wampum, and Nancy Bauer and her husband, William K., Palm Harbor, Fla. He worked with his father, Chuck, at Valley Burial Vault Service Inc. until he relocated to Florida for health reasons. He was a member of the Mt. Carmel Presbyterian Church and was a 1985 graduate of Monaca High School and was also a graduate of the Community College of Beaver County. A member of the Christian Motorcycle Association, he was an avid lover of outdoor activities, especially riding his motorcycle. He loved and owned many animals and still enjoyed his lifelong passion of playing the drums. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his paternal grandparents, Howard D. and Marguerite Johnston, Center Township; his wife, Julie Fisher Johnston; a sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Richard Unen, Raccoon Township; a nephew, Shane Unen, and a niece, Olivia Unen. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Charles and Isabell Ralston. Friends will be received today from 1 to 8 p.m. in the HALL MONACA FUNERAL HOME INC., 998 Atlantic Ave., where a funeral service will be held Wednesday at noon with the Rev. Jack Patrick of the Mt.
