Robert C. Johnson, 79, Of Pawling

PAWLING, N.Y. -- Robert C. Johnson, 79, passed away peacefully Thursday, July 28, 2016, surrounded by his loving family.

Born in the Bronx to Frank and Ruth Johnson, he proudly served his country in the U.S. Army, as well as the Navy and Army reserves. He then had a fulfilling career as a dedicated New York City firefighter and fire marshal.

He married his teenage sweetheart, Anna, his wife of more than 50 years, in Brooklyn, and together they raised a family of which they are very proud.

Johnson loved hunting, fishing, horses and bragging about his grandchildren. He also enjoyed volunteering his time as a member and past fire chief of the Patterson Fire Department and as a judge for the Westchester County Parade Judges Association.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Robert Johnson Jr. and his wife Jeannine of Sherman, Conn.; daughter, Theresa Clarkson and her husband Keith of Pawling; daughter Donna Basting and her husband Timothy of Dover Plains; two brothers, Walter of Earlton and Donald of Rome; eight grandchildren, Jeffrey, Kyle and his wife Mandi, Cody, Tyler, Ryan, Giana, Tanner and Hunter; and several nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents and three brothers.

Services were handled by Horn & Thomes Funeral Home in Pawling.
