Johnston, Bob
Bob Johnston - Pueblo Chieftain - December 25, 2005 - Bob Johnston died Dec. 20, 2005, and was born at home on Hackberry Creek near Coppell, Texas, in Dallas County, April 1, 1919, and grew up on a ranch near San Angelo, Texas. He was the son of Bob and Katherine Duke Johnston. He attended San Angelo schools and graduated in 1941 from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, with a degree in business administration. After serving at Okinawa in the South Pacific during World War II, he arrived in Colorado when his father purchased the Red Top Ranch, 35 miles southeast of Pueblo in 1945. Bob moved to southern Colorado to become owner/operator, along with his two sisters, of the ranch. He married Doris Casstevens of Fort Worth, Texas, in 1947, and together they built the home that served as the headquarters of the Red Top Ranch for more than 34 years. Following in the family footsteps, Johnston was the third generation to be involved in cattle ranching. He expanded the Red Top Ranch to 110,000 acres and became personally involved in Colorado's cattle industry. In 1964, he testified at the export-import hearings in Washington, D.C., from the viewpoint of the family rancher. Johnston worked the Red Top Ranch actively himself during his ranching years, stringing fence, welding windmill towers and rounding up cattle. Johnston, along with his sisters, sold the Red Top Ranch in 1979. In 1970 he joined friends Jack Thatcher and Jerry Robbe in the operation of Chico Feedyard, a 10,000-head feed yard east of Pueblo. His dedication to Colorado's cattle industry had led him to be president of the Pueblo County Stockmen's Association, president of the Colorado Cattlemen's Association, Trustee Emeritus of the Colorado Cattlemen's Foundation and he served three terms on the American National Cattlemen's Association Executive Committee. During that time he was instrumental in helping the organization solidify its operating structure. In 1993, the Colorado Cattlemen's Association honored him with its "Honorary Lifetime Member" award. In addition to his ranching interests, Bob Johnston had served on Thatcher-controlled banks for 46 years in Pueblo. He served on the First National Bank board from 1955 to 1992, becoming chairman of the board in 1972. He was a founder of the Park National Bank in Belmont. And, after the sale of First National and Park National, he joined the Minnequa Bank board serving from 1992 to 2001 and most recently was a member of the Vectra Bank of Pueblo advisory board. Johnston has been president of the Pueblo Chamber of Commerce, director of the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry, a member of the Colorado State Fair Commission and a member of the Governor's Sell Colorado Ambassadors. In 1995 he was named a "Visionary of the West" by the Colorado Business Hall of Fame. His interest in the community had seen him serve as a board member for the Pueblo Zoo and the El Pueblo Museum, and the Pueblo Rotary Club named him an "Honorary Rotarian." He had also served as an at-large member of the Southeastern Colorado Heritage Center and was a member of the Pueblo County Historical Society and the Fowler Historical Society. In 2000, he was honored by The Southern Colorado Press Club with the Mel Harmon Community Service award and in 2003 the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center named him an honorary trustee. Bob Johnston exemplified the ideal Coloradoan, an active custodian of the land and a leader in community activities. But he was also much more to the people who were fortunate to know him as a friend, husband, brother and uncle. He will be remembered as the most kind, most generous and most gentle man anyone of us has ever known. He is survived by his sister, Ruth Johnston Lott of Minneola, Texas; sister and brother-in-law, Marilyn Johnston Mertz and Joe Mertz of San Angelo, Texas; his nephew and family, David H. Lott, Lynn Lott, Trace Lott and Kathryn Lott, all of Dallas, Texas; niece, Katie Mertz Johnson and family, Gary Johnson, Joseph Johnson and Molly Johnson, all of San Angelo, Texas; niece, Margaret Mertz Buechler and children, Mary Margaret Buechler and Bryan Buechler of Dallas, Texas; and niece, Joan M.

Johnston, Raymond Everett Jr.
Raymond Everett Johnston Jr. – Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph – June 3, 1976 – Man Killed by Car on South 8th Street – A Pueblo man was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Francis Hospital early today after he was struck by a car in the 500 block of South 8th Street. Police identified the victim as Raymond Everett Johnston Jr., 34. He was hit by a car driven by Richard Langan, 24, of 4770 Rusina Road. Police accident investigator J. J. Ports said Johnston was apparently intoxicated and had been wandering up and down the street. Several witnesses told Ports they narrowly missed hitting Johnston prior to the fatal collision. Johnston's car was found in a nearby parking lot of a bar. Authorities found an open bottle of liquor in the vehicle. A blood alcohol test will be taken from the body to determine the extent of intoxication. A similar test was given Langan and the results of the two tests will determine if any charges will be filed against him. Johnston, who police was wearing dark clothing, was hit by the front of the car. He was thrown onto the vehicle's hood, smashing the windshield. He was carried about 125 feet by the car before it came to a stop. Johnston was pronounced dead at the hospital at 2:27 a.m. He died of massive head and other injuries.
