Roger R. Johnson passed away on March 6th, 2023 after a long illness. Roger is survived by his long time love Pat Parkin; his Guardian since 6 years of age/Aunt Alma Bossard; and many cousins, nephews and niece. He is predeceased by his mother Marie, and his brothers and sisters-in-law, Romaine (Jean), and Ronald (Joan).
Roger was originally from Ithaca, New York but more recently resided in Gold Canyon, Arizona. Roger graduated from Ithaca High School and was a veteran of the USAF. After his retirement as an Industrial Designer with Hi-Speed in Ithaca, Roger and Pat toured the country in their motorhome with their dear Schnauzers before settling in Arizona. He was an avid bowler, golfer, and softball player. A long suffering NY Mets and Jets fan, he really enjoyed watching them beat up on the other NY teams.
Services will be planned at the convenience of the family at a later date.
