Ogrefest is an annual event in memory of the life of Eric “Ogre” Johnson.  In the late 90s he was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, which ultimately took his life in January 2015. “He was larger than life with a huge heart,” remembers his sister Liz Nerger.

This is the third Ogrefest held to celebrate his huge heart and bring Diabetes awarenss to the Middle Georgia community. Donations can be made to help local diabetics patients without insurance find help and/or supplies.

He loved music! He played bass guitar. He had a few bands in the 90’s. He loved his family above all. His fight with diabetes was a fight he fought hard. He truly embraced our viking ancestry. He had such a huge impact on so many people, which we learned with his passing. He would do anything he could to help others. Because of his struggle, we know all to well how hard it is and what a toll this disease takes on the body, so we like to help others in similar situations. Last year we collected enough donations we were able to help a local diabetic to purchase a 3 month supply of insulin and other diabetic supplies. My brother would rather help someone locally than donate to a corporate foundation.” – Sister, Liz Nerger
