Robert Zell (Bob) Johnson left us on February 7, 2019. He was born in Harcourt, Iowa on April 8, 1933. He was an Eagle Scout, a veteran of the Korean War, a Mason and a Shriner.

Bob was dedicated to his work as a Civil Engineer, which brought him to several states working on interstate projects, and later traveled abroad designing asphalt plants in several countries. He was also co-owner of B&B Silk Screen Studio.

He was an extraordinary man who lived his life with dignity, believing that the three C’s — Communication, Coordination and Cooperation were the keys to life. He had a passion for Guinness, his Ford pickup truck, work boots and especially his family. He is the wind beneath the wings of his beloved wife of 64 years.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara Warren Johnson; son, Chip Johnson and Cristelyn Udouj-Roebuck of Fort Smith, AR; daughter, Jewell Johnson Sanders and husband, Jimmy of Atlanta, GA; five grandchildren, Emily Johnson Goodhart and husband, Matt of North Little Rock, AR; Alex Johnson and wife, Erin of Sarasota, FL; Adrienne Johnson Doughty and husband, Ryan of Mena, AR; Anna Jewell Sanders and Grace Marie Sanders of Atlanta, GA; and six great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his two sisters, Dotti Johnson Anderson and husband Wally of Boxford, MA, and Mary Johnson Kvitek and husband Dick of Chaska, MN.

Memorial service with Military Honors will be 1:00 PM Friday, March 22, 2019, at U. S. National Cemetery Pavilion, 522 Garland Ave., Fort Smith, AR with burial to follow both under the direction of Edwards Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to a charity of the donor's choice.
