Johnny enjoyed his children. He lived a solitary life after his marriages and enjoyed his “Thistle Acres” and his “Happy Half a Horse Shed, ” as he always referred to his home.
He loved talking on the phone to his brothers and his children. He would always write diaries for letters and then rip them up and start over.
He worked as a DJ for numerous years and was known as Johnny Nice Guy. He ended his working career at Wymont Beverages.
He is survived by his children: Vicki Nystrom of Silverdale, Wash. ; Terri (Bill) Elgin and son, Josh of Olathe, Kan. ; John Nystrom of Billings; Rex Nystrom of Fond Du Lac, Wis. ; Tammy (Mike) Rasmussen and sons, Shawn and Corey of Billings; Tracy (Grant) Haman and son, Conner and daughter Regan of Billings; and his three brothers: Paul (Jo) Nystrom of Montrose, Colo., Ed Nystrom of Havre and Conrad Nystrom of Havre.
