Arbog, Manitoba, Canada - Robbie Johnson, 21, of Arborg, Manitoba, Canada, died accidentally on Friday, January 28, 2005 in Thief River Falls.
Robbie was born on May 1, 1983 at the Victoria General Hospital. He was raised on a farm in Sylvan, Manitoba, Canada, where he developed into a fine young man, who grew to love the outdoors. Life was an adventure for Robbie. Countless hours were spent triking around the family farm. Although Robbie enjoyed playing hockey, hunting was his true passion.
He attended school at Fisher Branch, where he developed many close friendships. After graduation, he worked at Feed Rite and Patterson’s. He later decided to pursue his career in trucking and get his Class 1 license. He started working at Henry Banman Truking where he was employed. Along the way he met many new friends.
Watching movies gave Robbie a chance to sit back and relax with those that he loved. No matter who he was with, Robbie always managed to crack a smile on everyone’s faces with his practical jokes. Robbie had each participant at his mercy when playing Monopoly. His expertise led him to victory on numerous occasions, only after he loaded his properties (Boardwalk and Park Place) with those tiny red hotels.
He had a fun loving and energetic nature that captivated all those who knew him.
After meeting his special friend, Morgan in July 2003, Robbie began to think seriously about what direction he was going. He began making plans for his future. He cherished his newfound love and his parents were proud of the son they had raised.
