August 9, 1931 – December 29, 2015

With sadness we announce the passing of Robert L. Johnson on December 29, 2015, skipper of Silver Token fishing boat. Robert was born on August 9, 1931 on Smith Island in the village of Osland, BC. Robert had a lot of fond memories and stories of his younger years growing up in Osland. Robert started fishing at the age of 14 and it was a career he had all his life, spending 25 years of it at the Skeena Test Fishery. Spring fishing was always a favourite of Roberts as was taking his grandchildren out on the boat.

Predeceased by his parents Thuridur (Oddson) and Luther Johnson. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Margret Ann and father to Michel, Jon (Terry), Ann-Margrit (Marvin), Kristofor and Andrew. Robert was a wonderful grandfather to Mikael, Pieter, Zakarie, Kaylee, Dean, Joeseph and Lily.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Acropolis Manor for the care and kindness for Robert over the past six years.
