Reflections for Police Officer Robert J. Johnson

Thinking of Lorna and the rest of P.O. Johnson's family. As the daughter of retired NYS/Sr. BCI Frederick P Goldman and sister of retired NYS/BCI Jeffrey Goldman and niece of NYS/BCI Paul Overdorf and cousin to NYSP Jason McCanney, I totally understand the sacrifice.

Thought of you yesterday Bob, still missing are BS sessions and laughing. Wish you were here buddy I'll raise glass over the weekend when I'm off to you, until we meet again my friend.

Hey Bob, went to the Northville Park yesterday they did a memorial for you a pavilion that over looks the little lake. Groff spoke and told how you would call out on a property check at the James Groff memorial park just to bust on him when you knew he was working. Now it's your park buddy I remember when you were field training me and said it was the James Groff park all while having that smile of yours. So I will say this in closing 3811 to dispatch show property check completed at the Robert J Johnson memorial park, all OK until we meet again my friend.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Robert was killed.

To the Johnson family, fellow officers and all who call Robert beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Johnson gave to his community and the citizens of New York and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 4, 2017

For Police Officer Robert J. Johnson:

Dedicated law-officers don't have a quitting time nor a period when they are off-duty, as demonstrated by Robert.

We regret that Robert would fall victim of an accident that resulted in him losing his life.

We pray for Robert's family and those close to him. May they be ready to reach out to one another at this time.

We also render Officer Robert Johnson, a soldier-of-the-law, a proud and final salute.

It takes a special kind of man or woman who are willing to put on a badge and serve their community knowing that they put their lives in harm's way every day. I thank my Lord Jesus for Robert Johnson who was willing to give all in life, even unto death! I pray for your family that God will provide comfort and peace during this time of their sorrow!
