Robert Eugene Johnson III

He loved riding horses with his daughters Torry and Tessa and taking motorcycle rides with his son Robby. He was a jack of all trades and had so much knowledge that he passed onto his children. He was a hard worker and took pride in his work whether it was building fence, doing home projects with Tessa and Kenny, or working on his fishpond with his five-year-old grandson Eli.

Robert loved spending his time outdoors camping, hunting and fishing. His family was everything to him and he is dearly missed.

He is survived by his wife Crissy Johnson; his son Rob Johnson IV; two daughters Tessa (Kenny) Sunderland and Torry Johnson; his mother Sheila Silburn; his father Robert Johnson Jr; brother Emil Brent Johnson and his three grandchildren Elijah Fairman-Johnson, Kade and Kinley Sunderland.

The memorial service will be held at The Zink Building in Starbuck, Wash., on Saturday, October 23 at 5 p.m.

Hubbard-Rogg Funeral Home of Dayton is caring for the family.
