On Sunday, Bend lost a former City Manager who was instrumental in the City's growth. Art Johnson, 82, was Bend's City Manager from 1972 to 1986.  Johnson was very popular with employees for his easy going manner. Joel Liabratten is the Pastor at Grace First Lutheran Church and has known him for almost twenty years. “Well, he was always a man of dignity and integrity. Also, he had a great sense of humor. He loved to tell little jokes, and he would get a little smile on his face, just like he was a little boy, it was so endearing.” Pastor Liabratten calls Art Johnson a patriarch of Grace First Lutheran. His funeral will be Friday at the church at 1:30 p.m.
