Dr. Clair Johannssen

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Clair A. Johannsen, well-known organist and harpsichordist.  Dr. Johannsen served Trinity Lutheran Church as Director of Music and Worship from October 1964 until his retirement in Spring 2008.

He was beloved by church and community and brought much musical joy and excitement through his work at Trinity and the surrounding communities.  He was a major influence as mentor, teacher, friend and theologian to those who were privileged to work or study with him.

 A Celebration of Life was held on Thursday, February 16, with Bishop William Gohl preaching.
