Robert John Johansen, 66, was sent to live with our Heavenly Father on Oct. 13, 2012.

Robert was born June 14, 1946, in Austin, Minn. He was the son of Andrew and Maxine (Henderson) Johansen. Robert served in the United States Navy after completing High School and worked many years in boiler operations. He had a knack for keeping his mid-century values in an ever-changing world. A hard-working man who often gave more than he received. He was a husband, brother, father, grandfather and a friend to many. He was fiercely patriotic, and a loyal Minnesota Vikings fan.

Robert is survived by his wife, Sonita Johansen; sister, Gayle Peterson; brother, Ron Johansen; sons and daughters, Mary (Tom) Blohm, Matthew (Stacey) Johansen, Micah (Kate) Johansen, Michael Carlson, Lisa (Andrew) Pergeau and Jeremy (Jennifer) Farnes; 12 grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and loving companions Molly and Rokko.
