Obituary

Robert R. Edmisson, age 98, of Johnson, Kansas, passed away June 20, 2019, at Stanton County Long Term Care Unit in Johnson, Kansas. He was born May 16, 1921, in Englewood, Kansas, the son of George I. Edmisson and Maude E. Drake Edmisson.

He married Beulah M. Salmans on March 30, 1947, in Johnson. She died on December 24, 2016. Bob lived most of his 98 years in Johnson.

A veteran Of World War II, he served our country in the U. S. Army Air Corps in England. Bob was a crew chief mechanic on the B 24 Liberator bombers. Flying was one of his life pleasures.

He deeply loved God, his family, country, and community.
