A visionary Bend leader will be laid to rest today. Former Bend City Manager Art Johnson died earlier this month. His funeral will be at Grace First Lutheran at 1:30 today. Pastor Joel Liabratten says he was a leader in the community and at his church. “All the stories just parallel what I've heard, the process of being a gentle man, but a very organized and insightful man. People liked working for him. He had a big impact on Central Oregon in a lot of ways.” Art Johnson was Bend's City Manger from 1972 to 1986.
