June 30, 1950 - February 9, 2021
Robert C. Johnson, 70 of Georgetown, TX and formerly of Marengo, IL died Tuesday, February 9, 2021, in his home surrounded by his family. Bob was born on June 30, 1950, in Belvidere, IL, the son of Eric A. and Mary Jo (Wolf) Johnson. He graduated from Marengo High School and attended Illinois State University. Bob worked at Warner Electric for many years before moving to Texas in 1991. There, he opened and owned a small custodial service company and worked 20 years for Wal-Mart. His interests included traveling with his many friends to Chicago Bears’ away games, a deep love of baseball and in particular, the Chicago White Sox, conquering difficult crossword puzzles, and being a steady and constant paternal figure to those in need. In fact, uncompromising generosity was undoubtedly Bob’s largest contribution to this world; anyone and everyone who called upon Bob or told Bob of someone else’s needs almost immediately was blessed by his overflowing, unselfish, and dedicated kindness and goodness. Survivors include his brother, Allen Curtiss (DeitraKamholz) Johnson of Georgetown, Texas; nephews, Zachary Johnson and Justin Johnson and niece, Melissa Johnson; aunt, Doloris Wolf of Marengo; and several cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, William A. Johnson in 2009. A Mass of Christian Burial is Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at 11 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 323 N. Taylor Street, Marengo. Burial will follow in Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery. In accordance with public gathering restrictions, attendees are expected to wear a mask and observe social distancing. The funeral home staff will monitor capacity limits and only allow 50 people at Mass.
