Johnson, Robert (November 4, 1928 - November 19, 2010)

Robert Johnson, age 82, of the Town of Jump River, passed away on Friday, November 19, 2010 at his home.

Services were held on Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 11 a.m. at New Hope Presbyterian Church, Hannibal.

Bob was born on November 4, 1928 in Eau Claire, to the late Walter and Bernice (Frederick) Johnson.

They were united in marriage on July 25, 1953. After their time in the service, the couple eventually moved to Jump River in 1955 and purchased their farm. They have owned and operated the farm since.

Bob was a member of the Jump River Lions and Volunteer Fire Department and also was a longtime member of New Hope Presbyterian Church.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Ruth; three sons, Gary (Ruth Ann) Johnson of Neenah, Keith Johnson of Hawkins and Dale (Sheri) Johnson of Hannibal; one daughter, Debra (Steve) Votta of Aurora, Colo.; five grandchildren, Tara, Emily, Jack, Evan and Ben; three brothers, Richard (Fern) Johnson, Ronald (Isabel) Johnson and Harold (Bonnie) Johnson, all of Jump River; and one sister, Barbara Peterson of Eleva.
