An excerpt from Keg's Eulogy as I had originally penned it:Surrounded by family and friends, Keg was as lucky in the manner of his death, as he was in life. He  actually attended his own living memorial of sorts. His Daughter Medina and ex-wife Rose played some of Keg's greatest hits on their phones and we found ourselves singing along with the choruses. Keg smiled, bobbed his head to the music, and pointed at people in the room giving the thumbs up, letting you know he knew who you were. He didn't have the strength to talk, but he was able to utter a few words here and there. People called in to speak with him. As he listened to them on the phone, his eyes lit up and you knew he knew he was loved. After a while he tired and said, "It's time". That's right, Keg called the shots to the end. Keg was baptized in the ‘80’s, at the insistence of Donna Summer and was a student of the Urantia Book for over 35 years. Present with him to the end were his older Son Michael Charland-Tait, Daughter Medina Noelle Johnson, his younger son Joshua Frederic Keg Johnson, Josh’s mom Rose Mary Owens, his brother from another mother, William Zimmerman and his wife Desi, life-long friend and chief engineer on most of Keg's projects, Jim Shifflett, Leon Sylvers of The Sylvers and his son Leon, Jerry Bell of the Daz Band, and his dear friend Denise Lyles-Cook, whom he named The ORACLE. Keg Johnson was a story teller and to his credit wrote a book , From Jazz to Now: The Johnson Family Legacy, filled with historical and memorable accountings of some of    music’s greats, from Cab Calloway to Lena Horn to his nephew, Prodigy of Mobb Deep.Keg shared his stories and wisdom and credits his Godfather Milt Hinton with passing the torch to him saying, “It was given to me for free and I’m giving it to you for free. All I ask is that you pass it on and give it away for free.”
