Richard Willis Johnston

February 26, 1953 — March 20, 2021

Richard Willis Johnston, 68, passed away on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at his home in Highlandville. Richard was born on February 26, 1953 in Caribou, ME to Willis and Christine (Dixon) Johnston. He married Robin Sue Onken on August 25, 2001. She survives. Also surviving are three sons, Ryan Johnston and fiancée, Ashley Sawyer, Derek Johnston and wife, Kassie, and Josh Johnston; four step-children, Creighton Minder, Sarah Minder Melhorn, Bobby Minder, and Victoria Minder; four grandchildren, Brendan Summers, Brent Summers, Sara Summers, and Zachary Looney; and four siblings, Terry Coast, Carol Johnston, Sharon Tillotson, and Earl Johnston. He was preceded in death by his parents and one daughter, Heidi Summers. Richard was a Jack-of-all-trades who could fix anything except a broken heart. He was a hard worker who didn’t know how to stop – everyday he was out doing something new or lending a hand to someone in need. In fact, according to his family, Richard’s main hobby was just “working.” He liked to cut wood, but loved picking up walnuts, which he claimed was a good way to relax. A Memorial Service will be held for Richard at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at Adams Funeral Home in Ozark.
