Robert Johnson: Founding Director of Camp Fire Conservation Fund

Robert 'Bob' Johnson, of Millwood, NY passed away at home on June 1, 2014 at the age of 86.

He was born in New York on August 30, 1927 to Clara and Algot Johnson. He was raised in Brooklyn, where he attended Poly Prep Country Day School. He attended the United States Merchant Marine Academy, was a ship's officer in the Merchant Marine and spent his professional career with the Smith & Johnson Shipping Company. He was a life member and former member of the Board of Governors of the Camp Fire Club of America in Chappaqua, and a founding director of the Camp Fire Conservation Fund.

Bob was an avid outdoorsman and an accomplished hunter. He will surely be remembered for his hunting enthusiasm and skill. He was one of a mere handful of hunters who were able to take trophies of all 29 species of North American big game. His happiest times were spending time outdoors, hunting, and enjoying the camaraderie of his hunting companions.

He leaves behind his wife Patricia of New Orleans and five nieces. He is predeceased by his sister Lois Johnson Avery and by his parents. A private memorial service is planned for July 12th at the Camp Fire Club of America.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to the Camp Fire Conservation Fund, c/o the Camp Fire Club of America, 230 Camp Fire Road, Chappaqua, NY 10514, would be appreciated.
