Johnson was noted for his unflagging enthusiasm for journalism throughout his 54 years with the Register. 

“Bob’s favorite saying is ‘Everybody has a story,’ and if you live in Allen County, Bob has done his best to pry it out of you,” noted Susan Lynn, Register publisher, who presented Johnson with the award.
