Bob, Kim, and Wayne were on the Island of Kwajalein with my family in the later 1970s; a 1.2 square mile island 2100 nautical miles Southwest of Honolulu, Hawaii. Kwajalein Lagoon is where many Intercontinental Ballistic Test Missiles from Vandenberg AFB in California are targeted. Every workday we would pedal our bikes to the airport for the 15-minute flight on a De Havilland Caribou short takeoff and landing aircraft to .085 square mile Meck Island where we installed, maintained, and operated a phased array radar built by General Electric in Geddes, New York. During lunch breaks, Bob and I would walk around Meck and talk of many things. I enjoyed Bob’s down to earth attitude. Bob collected colorful and beautiful bank notes from many countries; in the years that followed Kwajalein, Bob would mail examples of this artistic money to us. I always felt better because Bob was in our world.
Wayne, your eulogy about your Dad on your web-site is moving. Best to you and Kim.

Condolences to the Johnson family. I knew your husband, father & friend for 7 years. He was my dearest customer at Uncle Bobs/Life Storage. I would look forward to him coming in every month and listening to his stories about life. He always made me laugh and his wit was never ending. He always had "words of wisdom" for me as he was leaving. You will be missed by me, my dear friend. Rest in Peace
