Robert E. Johnson, age 83, of Erie, passed
away at Twinbrook Health Care, on Saturday,
September 21, 2019, following a hard fought
battle with cancer. Bob was born on January 24, 1936,
to the late Leon and Anna (Senita)
Johnson.
Upon graduation from Wattsburg
High School, he served in the Army
National Guard for six years and
was employed by the Erie Crawford
Dairy Cooperative for 56 years. In
his younger years, Bob enjoyed
hunting and was an auto racing
enthusiast. Throughout his life he
was an avid reader, particularly
enjoying Western novels. He also served on the
Wattsburg Cemetery Board.
Bob is survived by his wife, Audrey E. (Harned)
Johnson, whom he married on January 1, 1958. His
love and commitment to Audrey was apparent as,
for the past eight years, he drove from his residence
in North East to Twinbrook each and every day, with
few exceptions, to spend the entire day with her.
Following a stroke a month ago, Bob was also placed
in Twinbrook, where they were able to see that in his
final days he shared a room with Audrey.
Bob is further survived by sisters, Dorothy Ramsdell
(James) of North East, Theresa Johnson (Lynn) of
Union City, Carol Jean Loop (Glenn) of Anadelle,
Virginia, and Betty Joan Spehar of Mayville Heights,
Ohio; as well as several nieces and nephews.
Private funeral arrangements are being handled
by the William D. Elkin Funeral Home, 65 South Lake
Street, North East. Memorials may be made to the
American Cancer Society, 2115 W. 38th Street, Erie, PA

Dearest family,
So devastating to hear of Bobby’s passing, he was such a good person, growing up I remember him coming up the hill to the farm to get milk, and me being small he always had a SNICKERS bar for me, always had a smile and nothing bad to say about anything or anyone EVERY. Rest In Peace, dear cousin, say hello to the family in heaven, God also calls home the best first, you will always be in my heart.
Rest In Peace,
Debbie Johnson Victorski
