Peter Romaine Johnson was born May 9, 1944, in Benton Harbor the son of Peter and Bobbie (Griffin) Johnson. Pete, as he was known to everyone, passed away Friday, July 9, 2021, at Rose Arbor Hospice Center, Kalamazoo, Mich.
On Nov. 30, 1963, Pete was united in marriage with Sandra Williams. Pete took over a heating and cooling business his grandfather started in Coloma and moved it to Hartford in 1970 and renamed it Johnson’s Heating and Air Conditioning. In his younger days, when it came time for the opening deer season, Pete would head up north. He also like to go fishing, however his most precious times were spent with his family, especially his grandchildren. If you couldn’t find Pete at home in the morning or at night, just look to the Panel Room and probably you could find him.
Peter is survived by his wife, Sandra; two children: Wendy Spangler of Lawrence and Pete (Bobbi) Jr. of Hartford; five grandchildren: Andrew Spangler, Elliott Spangler, Adrianne Johnson, Rebecca Johnson and Dalton Graham. He is also survived by a sister, Shirley (Pete) Mengel of Kalamazoo; and a sister-in-law, Candace Johnson of Kalamazoo.
As per Pete’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial celebration of life will be at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20, at Maple Hill Cemetery in Hartford with Pastor Lonnie Truelove officiating. After the service, please join the family for coffee and cake at the Panel Room Restaurant.
