Ted Johnston family

GCI-USA Regional Pastor Ted Johnston requests prayer for his family. Michael Harris, 26-year-old son of Ted’s sister Jan (Johnston) Harris, died on September 7 as the result of a boating accident near Catalina Island in Southern California. Four others were on the boat with Michael—one has not been found and is presumed dead. The other three, including Michael’s girlfriend Kelly, are hospitalized with minor injuries. Michael had recently received a Master’s degree in psychology and was working as a high school counselor and basketball coach in Atherton, California. He is survived by his mother Jan, his father Peter (former president and CEO of the San Francisco 49ers), and younger brothers David and Richard.
