Alan Keith Johnson

Alan Keith Johnson, 60, passed away peacefully in his home on Oct. 4th, 2022. He bravely battled cancer for over three years and never gave up the fight. He was preceded in death by his father, Jacob Johnson. He is survived by his mother, Margaret Johnson, brother, David Johnson, along with niece, Amanda Johnson, nephews, Matthew Johnson, Michael Johnson, and Carter Johnson.

Keith, as he was known to family and friends, graduated from Bruton High School. Shortly afterwards, he joined Ball Metal, where he worked for 42 years. Keith enjoyed playing golf, working on cars, playing video games, going to concerts, and partying. Most of all, Keith loved playing his hard rock music and his electric guitars at volumes that most people would find alarming. Red Corvettes had a special place in his heart, he owned several throughout his life. He had a unique sense of humor and could make anyone laugh. Keith had a good heart and would always help out a friend in need. He will be missed by all who knew him. Keith’s outfit of choice was a rock concert t-shirt and jeans/sweatpants and to celebrate his life there will be a very casual graveside service on Saturday, Oct. 8th, 2022 at 11am at Cedar Grove Cemetery, 809 S. Henry St, Williamsburg, Va. 23185.

    Keith was one of my 1st friends when I moved to Williamsburg 24 yrs ago. Most of my career we worked together and were on the same crew for all but a few of them. We went to quite a few of those concerts and live music events. We played many a rock song together and even wrote a few too. Keith always got so excited and would call his mom so we could play and sing it for her over the phone. Margaret, I will miss the serious conversations Keith and I had and also his quick wit. Any time I stopped by it would turn into a couple hours of visiting. We both retired this year for medical reasons so I last saw him in September and regrettably found out late of his passing. I would have loved telling you some stories in person and of course I am so sorry for your loss. Thanks for all of the fun times Keith and rock on in heaven buddy. Chris
