Richard "Rich" M. Johnson, 68, was and will always be a loving husband, father, grandfather, and son. Rich never met a person he couldn't talk to, share a beer with or lend a hand if they needed it. Rich was a painter by trade but there was nothing in a house that he couldn't figure out. Rich loved spending time with his family and family of friends, whether going to the library, doing yoga at Peak, snowmobiling up north or FINALLY watching the Cubs win the Series. Rich passed away peacefully in his home on March 6, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer. Rich was born in Rockford on November 11, 1948 to Robert and Willa Jean (Anderson) Johnson. He was a veteran of the United States Marine Corp.
Rich will be lovingly remembered by his wife Carol; son, Jeff (Maureen) Johnson; granddaughter, Victoria; mother, Willa Jean Johnson; sister, Jan Garland; nieces; nephews; and too many good friends to name. The Family would like to thank Northern Illinois Hospice, especially Traci, and the numerous workers and volunteers who helped to make him comfortable.
Services will be at 11:00 am on Friday, March 10, 2017 in Olson Funeral & Cremation Services, Ltd, Fred C. Olson Chapel, 1001 2nd Ave., Rockford, with Pastor Jonathan Banister officiating. Visitation will be prior to the service from 9:30 to 10:45. Burial in Scandinavian Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Northern Illinois Hospice Foundation, 4215 Newburg Rd, Rockford, IL 61108. To share a memory or send an online condolence, visit olsonfh.com.
