Robert O. Johnson passed away peacefully in his sleep July 6, 2013.
Robert grew up with his three brothers, William, Jess, and Norman, in Emmett, Idaho, and was a resident of Sandpoint, Idaho, in his later years.
During the 1970s, he was a high school teacher in Oregon as well as a wrestling coach.
He built his own house and raised four children on a farm in Colton, Ore.
Robert, a survivor of polio, had his own unique way of getting through the difficult trials of life. He was a retiree from the Oregon State Department of Fish and Wildlife, and he loved the outdoors and hunting trips with his pals.
He is survived by his brother, Norman P. Johnson; his children, Roger, Brad, Gina, and Kristen; seven grandchildren; and his longtime love and mother of his children, Joann.
In lieu of flowers the family requests remembrances to be sent to Housecall Providers 5100 SW Macadam Ave., Suite 200 Portland, OR 97239.
There will be a life memorial at Camp Colton in Colton on Aug. 18 from 1-5 p.m. to remember Bob, his stories and his friends.
