Robert “Bob” G. Johnson, of Mora, passed away on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at his home. He was 76 years old.

He was born on March 26, 1944 in St. Paul, MN. Bob was a true Scandinavian Gentleman and was known by many as the tall guy with the silver-blue 1958 Impala. Bob graduated from Murray High School in St. Paul and the college of Associated Arts on Summit Ave. He also earned the C.S.M. (Certified Shopping Center Manager) accreditation.

He loved the family cabin on Knife River where he and Pat spent the last 22 years since retiring. Bob had so many interests: skiing, hunting, fishing, winter spearing, he was a pilot and was meticulous with woodworking and photography. With roots in Braham, he loved his Farmall tractor and anything related to the outdoors.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Sylvia Thorsten and Arnold Johnson and his only brother, Jerry.

He is survived by his wife, Pat; sisters-in-law, Lynn and Colleen; and special nephews and nieces, Rob, Chris, Marc (Janice), Tyler, Blake, Paul (Claudia), Eric, Jane, Joy (Tim), Grace, Anne ~ (the Johnson’s, Danner’s and Lehman’s).

He had so many wonderful friends, some since grade school. Please know that Bob thought of you as family, God bless the memories. Bob was a lifelong member of Como Park Lutheran Church. Bob’s life was about his faith, his friends, and his family all surrounded by the beauty of nature.

  2. Dear Pat,
    I am pleased to be included into your church group. Rizz always enjoyed your luncheons. I miss seeing the gang. I’m sure Rizz and Bob enjoyed seeing each other again. Please keep in touch.

  3. Dearest Pat: I am so sorry and surprised to hear of Bob’s death. My heart is breaking for you, and I know you have a strong faith in God’s healing power and you know that his arms are wrapped around you now in comfort. Thank goodness for the strong support of many friends in Mora. I will certainly be thinking of you and praying for you on Friday as you celebrate Bob’s life. My love to you during this difficult time.

  4. Pat and family. I so enjoyed Bob during our time at Silver Sneakers. What a gentle, loving man. I remember his car tee shirts and how proud he was of them. Will be thinking of you on Friday and the next few months. Maybe he and Rex are doing Silver Sneakers together now!!!! Hugs

  5. My heart is with you, Pat, at this time. I feel honored that I got to meet Bob and you on Fridays at Silver Sneakerz. And I loved our chats before class started. We have much in common! Please know you are loved and supported and if you need anything that I can help you with, please get a hold of me. I will donate to Ospreys Wild in Bob’s name. Peace, Light and Love Pat.

  6. I’m sad to hear of Bob’s death. He was one of the “good guys”! The Johnson family lived three houses away from our Sandquist family on our beloved Sheldon St. in St. Paul, MN. It was a very close knit neighborhood with lots of kids around the same age. Since we were little kids it was like a big family, playing together outside, going to each others houses and going to the same special church, Como Park Lutheran Church (only one block away), Chelsea Heights Grade School (a short walk away) and St. Paul Murray High School in St. Anthony Park area of St. Paul.
    The Johnson family was a key part of making Sheldon St such a special place to grow up. I remember Bob’s smile, his friendly disposition, his sense of humor, and his pleasing personality!!
    I must mention one other member of the Johnson family besides Bob, his brother Jerry, his mom and dad Sylvia and Arnie. That is their dog “Freckles”s! Freckles was THE neighborhood dog, loved by all of us!! Rest in peace, Bob! May the Lord bless you, Pat.
