The Cariboo has lost an entrepreneur and pioneer.

Rudy Johnson passed away at the age of 100.

Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Lorne Doerkson said he was also a champion of British Columbia and known for more than the bridge he built and bears his name

“He accomplished so much more. He was the Director of BC Livestock. He built 6 bowling alleys throughout British Columbia, he just did so much. He started I think it was Chilcotin Airwaves here at one point. The man was the absolute epitome of an entrepreneur, an amazing fellow for sure.”
