Richard Johnson

Johnson, Richard R. Enjoyed and lived life to its fullest. A native of Pacific Grove, California, Richard and his wife Nancy enjoyed over 51 happy years together raising three children and enjoying travel and the fruits of his successful career. A warm and compassionate husband, father, friend, dedicated grandfather, uncle and boss, Richard had the ability to connect and was esteemed by everyone he met. Passionate about the sea, he loved to sail and was a devoted fisherman. While a corporate executive most of his life, his careers also included firefighter, coast guard radioman, historian-tour guide and artist. His death at age 72, on February 1st after a long, hard fought battle with cancers has broken our hearts. He will be sorely missed. A private family memorial will take place at a later date in Pacific Grove, CA.
