Robert Johnson, 76, of Mora, Minn., died Jan. 6, 2021, at his home. He was born March 26, 1944, in St. Paul.
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 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 past 22 years since retiring. Bob had so many interests: skiing, hunting, fishing, winter spearing. He was a pilot and was meticulous woodworker and photographer. 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 and sisters-in-law, Lynn and Colleen. Bob was a lifelong member of Como Park Lutheran Church. If you want to remember Bob with a memorial donation, please choose your favorite wildlife or veterans organization.
