Robert Eugene Johnson, age 76, passed away on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 in Norwalk CT. He was born in Athens, Georgia to Clifford Johnson and Jennie Lou Johnson. Robert, known to all as “B.J.” or “Bobby,” attended local schools and graduated from Norwalk High School.
He was employed with Southern New England Telephone Company as a Central Office Technician. After retiring from the company, he worked as an Independent Wiring Specialist.
Bobby married Frances Denny and together they had a son, Roderick Johnson. After the death of Frances Denny, he later went on to marry Cynthia Robinson.
Bobby was known for his humor – sometimes a little bit on the edgy side, but it always brought raucous laughter from those who knew him. He loved sports, especially football and basketball, and in his younger years was an avid cyclist. Bobby was kind and thoughtful, always remembering holidays and birthdays with a card or a call to his friends. He especially loved and adored his three grandchildren.
He is survived by his son Roderick, Roderick’s wife Jacqueline, grandchildren Emily, Tyler and Elijah, his brother Clifford Johnson of Washington DC, and an aunt, Carolyn Brown of Athens, Georgia. Bobby is also survived by his brother-in-law Christopher Duff, niece Lisa Duff, and nephew Eric Duff.
He was pre-deceased by his Mother, Father, and brother Roderick Johnson.
A memorial service will be held a later date.
