Mr. Robert Kent Johnson, age 70, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Monday, May 17, 2021 at Villa Marie Nursing Home.

Robert was born on February 19, 1951 in Albuquerque, NM. the son of Robert C. and Patricia L. (Donaldson) Johnson. On February 18, 2000, he finally got to marry the love of his life, Janet Armstrong after 28 years of meeting, they had a very “special relationship”, who survives at the home.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Robert was a 1969 graduate of Jefferson City High School. After graduation, Robert took college courses at Lincoln University.

Robert was employed with Employment Security and Economic Development where he did clerical work until his retirement in 2005.

Robert was truly a unique person and he always had a smile on his face. He never failed to make you smile with one of his witty comments or sincerely convincing stories. Robert was highly intelligent and he loved history making him a fountain of knowledge on many subjects. Robert enjoyed watching football and baseball. He loved playing fantasy baseball with friends. He often entertained his friends and family at home with BBQ’s and fish fry’s. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

They say it always rains when a good man dies. Well one died today. Robert, I will miss you more than words can describe. You were uniquely you and I loved you dearly. No girl could have asked for a better step-dad. We had a double rainbow at the house today just for you.

Survivors include: his loving wife, Janet; one step-daughter, Jennifer Kemper (husband, Nick) of Cypress, Tx.; three siblings, Jay Johnson (wife, Amelia), Fawn Johnson, and Rebecca Rudder (husband, Ralph); two grandchildren, Breelynn and Ryleigh; two dogs, Scrappy and Brandy; and three cats, Rowdy, Bandit, and Banjo.

Robert was preceded in death by his parents; his grandparents; mother-in-law, Clara Mae Landers; father-in-law, Art Landers; and numerous pets.

A Celebration of Robert’s Life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to People Helping Paws or Hospice Compasses.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

Robert, I saw you and Janet at a Class of 1969 reunion. I knew Janet from the days when our mothers worked together at Tweedies. Janet, you have had two losses in the last few months with the passing of Charlie and now Robert. You and your families have my sympathy and prayers. Pamela (Brock) Mueller.

I spent many days listening to Bob make calls at work. He was special with his interviews. I remember a special call one day that endeared me to his style. It was a very snowy day in January and Jeff city was getting slick. He was calling a regular in Springfield to get their information. He asked how things were there and you could tell they were talking about the icy conditions they were getting. Without missing a beat, he replied, "well it's sunny and 65 here in Jeff." That is what made Bob special. My thoughts to all who knew him. RIP Bob.
