Bob Johnston
Feb 3, 1949 - July 10, 2020


On July 10, 2020 Robert Blaine Johnston (Bob, BJ) of Rimbey, Alberta passed away at the age of 71 years of pancreatic cancer. He leaves his wife Sharon (nee James), his children Heidi (Kevin Tennant) and Ben (Krystal Hebert). His four grandchildren - Ella & Andrew Tennant, Max & Marley Johnston - will miss him everyday. He is survived by his sister, Elaine (and Nestor Saskiw), his brother-in-laws: Robert, Dale (Betty) and Douglas James.

Bob's career in Education as a teacher and a principal was a perfect fit for his personality of caring, enjoying humour, optimism and only seeing the best in people. Bob was fortunate to have strong, warm connections with all members of his extended family. A chance to come together was always a priority which allowed him the opportunity to share stories of life experiences. He established many firm, committed and loving friendships throughout his life that he valued immensely. He had the gift of touching one's heart forever.

There will be no service due to Covid Limitations. Family and friends will gather at Bob's special place, Muriel Lake, to celebrate his life.
