We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Spitler Funeral Home, Inc.
Robert Edward Johnson, age 95, of Williamsport, formerly of Loyalsock Township, died September 16, 2022, at UPMC Susquehanna Williamsport after a brief illness.
A resident of the Williamsport Home, he was born in Williamsport, the son of Andrew G. and Lucy M. (Mattson) Johnson, on July 16, 1927. He was a graduate of South Williamsport High school and proudly served in the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II.
Bob (“Red”) was employed by the National Cash Register Company for 41 years. After his retirement, he enjoyed restoring antique brass cash registers and doing wood working projects.
He was an active charter member of the Loyalsock Township Lions Club, and was named a Melvin Jones Fellow for dedicated humanitarian services. He was also a long-time member of The Scottish Rite NMJ.
Bob is survived by his two sons, Stephen E. (Kathy) Johnson of The Villages, FL, and Scott A. (Lynn) Johnson of Harrisburg, PA; grandchildren, Erin (Conor) Rummler and Drew (Frances) Johnson, along with two great-grandchildren; a brother, Charles A. Johnson of Trout Run; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by both his first wife, Patricia A. (Woolever) Johnson, and his second wife, Dorothy (Maneval) Spitler Johnson, and by his brother, Andrew W. Johnson.
The family would like to express their appreciation to the drivers and management of the River Valley Transit Authority for their many acts of kindness shown towards Bob in his later years. The buses provided him a way to maintain his independence when he was no longer able to drive, and he always spoke highly of the people and service.
