Robert B. Johnson

February 14, 1935 — July 31, 2020

Robert B. (Bob) Johnson, age 85 of Hendersonville, passed away on Friday, July 31, 2020.

He was a hardworking husband and father who loved his church, his family and his many friends. His hobby was talking and enjoyed talking to everyone he met. He was always on the go, and always doing something – he never knew an idle moment. He was known to be very particular about taking care of his yard and enjoyed working there and loved caring for his flowers. He also loved UT Football and spoiling his grandbabies.

He is preceded in death by his parents, James and Mabel Johnson; his wife, Sarah Jane Johnson; and a son, Douglas Allen Johnson. He is survived by his son, Stephen Johnson; his daughter, Margaret (Bud) Judkins; his grandchildren, Mason Johnson, Sarah Judkins and Gretchen Judkins; and a sister, Peggy Yanda of California.

No services are planned at this time, but there will be a gathering of family and friends scheduled and announced at a later date.

Bob was always looking for ways to give back to the community that he so dearly loved. Because of this, his family requests that in lieu of flowers memorial donations be made in his name to the Samaritan Center of Hendersonville at 116 Dunn Street, Hendersonville TN 37075 or online at

Services have been entrusted to Austin and Bell Funeral Home and Cremation Service, Hendersonville. 615-822-4442.
