Funeral held for MRU instructor killed in plane crash - CTV NewsTuesday, April 04, 2017
Johnson was one of two pilots killed on February 13 when they crashed in a small plane that was part of MRU’s training fleet. The plane went down in a wooded area northwest of Cochrane and the wreckage was found by Highway 40 near Waiparous.
MRU aviation student Taylor Jackson says Johnson's impact on the lives of his students extended beyong the classroom and cockpit.
“Growing up, I never really had a grandfather,” said Jackson. “When I came here in September that was one of the first things I actually thought about when I met Reyn.”
“He was so much more than an instructor. He was a student as much as an instructor. He was always willing to learn.”
Johnson’s career spanned more than three decades with years spent flying for Jazz Airlines and working as a private instructor before joining MRU as a flight instructor in 2016.
Luc Sinal, one of Johnson's students, has warm memories of his fallen instructor. "From the minute I met him he was immediately a friend. He was such a kind person.”
“He would always make his way (into the student room) and the first thing he would do was shake everybody’s hand and say hello. He always remembered past conversations so he would check-in on stuff that we had talked about a week or two before.”
David Docherty, MRU president, said the loss of Johnson and his fellow instructor Jeff Bird has had a devastating impact on the school and the families of the pilots.
"These are people who died following their dreams and instilling dreams in our students,” said Docherty. "It's clear the lasting mark that they made...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure.
