Obituary

Robert A. Johnson, Sr., (“Ribet”), 62, passed away December 4th, after a long battle with cancer, at home surrounded by his family.

He was born September 20, 1957 in Rockland, Maine, to Jesse J. Johnson and Winona (Miller) Johnson.

Robert grew up in Waldoboro and attended local schools. He graduated from Medomak Valley High School class of “75”.

As a teenager he went lobstering with his father and brother. After high school he moved to Massachusetts, where he worked on the Poirier Farm in North Upton. He also worked for Upton Fuel bagging salt in winter months. Robert was a carpenter and craftsman and could create most anything out of wood, metal or just scraps lying around. He moved back to Maine in “88” and was a self employed fisherman and clam digger. . Many occasions he would do barge runs with his friend Mike. Robert was also an alewife harvester. He and his cousin Dana were agents of Warren’s Alewife Fishery for over 20 years. A lot of credit goes to their husbandry of the fishery on the St. George. Robert enjoyed seeing all the guys after a long winter, and liked talking and catching up and having a good laugh with all of them.

Robert was a life time member of the North American Hunting Club. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, watching movies, baking “the best banana bread evah”, decorating for Halloween and passing out candy to all the kids. Robert was knowledgeable, detailed, impeccable craftsmanship; one could say he was a “Jack of all Trades”. He was strong willed, had an easy-going, happy-go-lucky personality, and was pretty comical at times. He will be sadly missed.

He is predeceased by his father, Jesse J. Johnson, sister Arlene Johnson, brother Douglas Johnson, and niece Crystalle Johnson.

Robert is survived by his mother, Winona Johnson, brother Paul Johnson, both of Waldoboro, sister Marie Johnson Pierce, brother-in-law Arthur Pierce, and nephew Larry Reed all of Maine.

Surviving are two sons Justin Johnson and Robert A. Johnson, Jr., grandchildren Jordan J. Walter-Johnson, Lillian J. Johnson, Cheri M. Johnson, Alixandra M. Cloud, Mayah J. Bol and one great grandchild Jaxson J. Stibal-Johnson all of Minnesota. He also leaves behind long time friends Sarah and Simon Poland, many friends, cousins, and relatives.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday, December 20, 2019 from 5-7 p.m. and a funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 21, 2019 both at Hall’s of Waldoboro, 949 Main Street, in Waldoboro, Maine. Burial will be in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Robert’s memory to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

Halls of Waldoboro has care of the arrangements. To extend online condolences, visit www.hallfuneralhomes.com.
