January 31, 1933 - October 13, 2021
Robert Lee Johnson, Sr., 88, of Bay City, our devoted, proud, and independent father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend passed away peacefully on the evening of Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at Charter Senior Living. Bob was born in Bay City on January 31, 1933, the son of the late Alfred L. and Charlotte (Daley) Johnson. While working at the cigar store, a lady by the name of Geneva Joyce Hendrix happened to walk in and catch his eye. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on April 4, 1961. After nearly forty years of marriage, Genevea preceded Bob in death on February 20, 2001. A strong-willed man, throughout life, Bob overcame whatever obstacles came his way with grace and dignity. He enjoyed reading, following sports (especially baseball and football), and was an avid walker, walking three times a week religiously. He was also a lover of old time country music. In his younger years, Bob was an active member of South Baptist Church in Bay City. To carry on his legacy, Bob leaves his children, Debora (Rascal) Calcutt, Julie (Joe) Lokajtys, and Robert Lee (Jill) Johnson, Jr.; grandchildren, Rachel, Alex, Connor (Brianna), Mara, Elijah, Corie, and Stacie; great-grandson, William; brothers, Norman and Gerald (Lorraine) Johnson; sister, Eileen Micho; along with many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents and his wife, Bob was welcomed home to heaven by his son, Randy Smith in 1991; brothers, Alfred and Neal, and sisters, Delores, Betty, Joyce, and Ruth. Bob’s family will be present to receive visitors on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 2:00 PM until Bob’s 4:00 PM Life Celebration at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 821 N. Pine Rd., between Ridge & Center. Pastor Alan Verhagen will officiate with cremation to follow. Bob will be laid to rest in St. Patrick Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Wounded Warrior Project. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family online at www.skorupskis.com.
