Sad to report the death on 15 September 2008 at the age of 94 of a Hemlock Society stalwart Alan Johnson, EDd.

He founded the Hemlock Society chapter in Palm Springs, California, and kept it active for many years. Alan also served on the boards of the Hemlock Society USA in the 1980s and on Americans for Death with Dignity, its political arm. At his death he remained a member of the Hemlock Society of San Diego.

Alan had been active until recent weeks but a sudden decline in health caused him to go into San Diego Hospice. There he decided not to eat or
drink any more and died in his sleep eight days later. His companion, Vivi, was at his side.
