Robert Steven "Steve" Johnson, son of Robert Paul and Mary Adina Johnson, married to Michelle Ann "Mickie" Gambino Johnson, born 6/27/1969 died August 12, 2016 at home from stage four esophageal cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Mickie and their eight purr babies Erika, Bella, Ronin, Angel, Hope, Rikka, Pepper and Pippin; his mother Adina, his two sisters Teresa Campagna and her husband, Joe, and Dee Warden, and his nephew Thomas, and nieces Brittany Laurel, Maleigha and Elise.
In life, Steve acquired a degree in political science from the University of Tennessee and a computer science degree from Pellissippi State. He desired to enter seminary to begin a prison ministry and to work with other PTSD sufferers.
His passions included reading, karate, and politics, riding his Harley Freewheeler, his tattoos, and the biker brotherhood he longed to be a part of.
His great love of political debate and karate was surpassed only by his love for the LORD, his wife and his cats, his biker brothers, and his family.
He achieved Rukudan rank 6th degree black belt in Isshinryu, second degree black belt in Arnis, and Master Instructor in Wheeler pressure point fighting.
As a political blogger, a titan under the handle Iron Fist, he shaped the political discussion on several blogs earning both profound love and respect, and scorn by others much to his amusement.
Gone too soon, he placed his trust in GOD's plan even though he did not know what it was. A warrior in life, he is now in GODs heavenly Marine Corps.
A Celebration of Steve's life will begin at 12 Noon on Saturday, at Weaver Funeral Home. Chapel service, receiving of friends, and interment to follow.
