Kevin D. Johnson


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our brother, Kevin D. Johnson, spouse of Pastor Marie A. Wilson, died on Sunday, February 21, 2021.

While supportive of his spouse, due to illness Kevin was not able to accompany Pastor Marie as she was appointed to serve the Sonoma United Methodist Church in California.

Brother Kevin cared deeply for his community and was known as one who always offered help and support to all he met who had a need. He was employed by the Hayward School District where for many years he ran the afternoon school program and other enrichment programs.   He was beloved of every generation of children who experienced his servant leadership.   

Kevin was an avid fisherman, who loved to cook. He was also a very popular disc jockey in the Bay Area and beyond.  Most of all, he loved time spent with his family.

He is survived by his wife, Marie A. Wilson, and by his children Kevin Johnson Jr., Kimberly Johnson, and Kenneth Johnson, and by his stepson Neil Wade, and by 6 grandchildren. Condolences may be sent to Marie Wilson at 921 92nd Avenue, Oakland, CA  94603.

A viewing will be held on March 9, 2021 at Harris Funeral Home in Berkeley CA from 11 am to 6 pm.  A private memorial service to be led by Rev. Staci Current.

Let us continue to give God thanks for Kevin’s life and witness and hold his family close in prayer.  In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
