Robert Gayle Johnson passed away March 6, 2018 peacefully in his home in Fremont with loved ones nearby. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He was born December 8, 1954 to Jack and Norline Tolley Johnson in Nephi, Utah. When he was 19 he met the love of his life whom he would spend the rest of his time with, Christina Ann Moosman. They were married July 26, 1975 in Nephi, Utah. Together they had four beautiful daughters: Misty, Melanie, Monica, and Robyn. Through them they had 12 grandchildren who looked up to him dearly.
Robert enjoyed all things outdoors. He thrived on trapping, hunting, going to rendezvous, his NASCAR, and spending time with his friends. Don’t let his tough skin fool you; he enjoyed spending time with his family as well, especially his grand babies. He was not a man of many words, but the few words he spoke hit your heart.
Robert was a man of many talents. He was the one who started the high school rodeo in his hometown of Nephi. He became a police officer and worked for the town of Spring City. He also worked most of his life side by side with his best-friend, companion, and wife.
There is no way to sum such a great life into a few words.
Robert leaves behind his loving wife, Chris Johnson; daughters: Misty Tidwell, Melanie Johnson, Monica Brown, and Robyn Johnson; grandchildren: Bryson Robertson, Cody Robertson, Hayden Christensen, Tylee Bona, Kylee Brown, Kindy Brown, Kayshen Brown, Alyx Tidwell, Avery Parish, Treyger Ellett, Kallyn Ellett and Abby Gayle Ellett; siblings: Jackie Anderson, Jerry (Kaylene) Johnson, Yauna (Gaylen) Cook, Bessie (Eddie) Pedersen; mother-in-law, Virginia Moosman.
He is preceded in death by his parents; and father-in-law, Delroy John Moosman.
