Richard was born in Moravia, Iowa to Guy and Ruth Johnson on June 13, 1940.
He was preceded in death by his beloved, wife, Tonia Naegelin Johnson.
He graduated from Burbank High School in San Antonio. He worked many jobs over his lifetime but enjoyed his work at Home Depot until he retired.
He was a Vietnam Veteran having served in the US Navy. Richard proudly served his country and loved traveling our beautiful countryside with his beloved, wife, on their many road trips. On their travels he was always taking photos of beautiful landscapes, family, and silly signs along the side of the road.
