One of my favorite AHS teachers. Bob taught us Dickens (Great Expectations) and used the lyrics of contemporary musicians such as Paul Simon to get us interested in poetry. I always enjoyed his class. My sincere condolences to his family.
Heartfelt sympathy to you all.
Jodi, I am so very sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
I came to AHS from 8 years in a small school. English had always been a favorite subject, but when it came to the writing portion of the class I was lost. Mr. Johnson recognized this immediately and took the extra time to get me back on track. I will always remember him for his patience and his ability to see that I just needed a little help. I believe he also use to tell us about his diesel powered roller skates. My sympathies to his family. I am sure you will all miss him.
Bob was a great friend and a awesome teacher I had while I was in High school back in the day. I'm sending prayers for all the family as well as hugs and good thoughts.
I first met Mr. Johnson as one of the new teachers and I was a sophmore in a class with guys that were known as giving the teachers a hard time. He had the hard job of teaching us the classic novels and in end there was avid learners and nappers. Years went by and i wirked at an Assisted Living Facility and Bob Johnson came there to live. He loved Trivia, Jeopardy etc. and he was excellent at them! Then he went to Good Sam and ! went live there there for a couple of months because of a broken leg and he was my next door neighbor! My condolences are with his family.
I wish i would have seen this sooner than today. HE was my FAVORITE TEACHER, WHEN I GRADUATED, HE SAID TOE HOLLY YOU CANT LEAVE WHO WILL FIX MY COMPUTER FOR ME. HE WAS THE GREATEST, AND WILL BE MISSED DEARLY. HUGS TO ALL OF HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
I remember when Mr. Johnson was a teacher at AHS wonderful teacher. You have my deepest sympathy always cherish the beautiful memories you have. God Bless
I first knew Bob in 1957. We were classmates at Eagle Grove Jr. College. A very good friend. We enjoyed many things together, many coffees, golf, and tennis. He was a great teacher and not just to the students, but to anyone who asked for help. He enjoyed learning. He will be missed.
I knew Dr. Bob as a warm and engaging educator. He exuded a sense of patience and calm that belied an extraordinary man. I have always felt I was better for have known him. I wish the best to his family and loved ones.
Remembering Bob when I was a little girl. We used to get together and play at each other's homes. You two thought coming to the farm was so fun and we farm kids liked going to Algona (the big city)! Our parents were friends. Our Dads worked together during National Guard duties in Fort Dodge,Iowa. Our Moms remain good friends to this day. Our sympathy to you Jodi, Denise, and your families.
