A virtual memorial service to celebrate the life of Keion Cherelle Johnson, 20, of Alcester, South Dakota, formerly of Temple, TX will be held at 10:00 AM, Friday, July 16, 2021 in Young's Daughters Funeral Chapel.
Keion Cherelle Johnson was born October 5, 2000, at Mercy Medical Hospital in Sioux City, Iowa, to the late Amy Jean Baker and Roy Chester Johnson, Jr. and departed this life on July 2, 2021, due to an unfortunate accident.
As a child, Keion was very shy and would normally be found hiding behind his dad. The shyness soon faded, and Keion became a loving, caring, kind, respectful, and athletic young man, full of laughter and joy. Keion loved to spend time with his family and friends. He had a huge, contagious smile and loved to make those around him laugh. Keion had a huge heart and especially loved his animals, just as his mother, Amy.
During his early years, Keion attended school in Iowa and in 2009 moved to Temple, Texas and attended The Church of God of the Firstborn, where he sat under the leadership of Pastor Ernest Minor.
Keion participated in football, basketball, track, and band at Lamar Middle School and later participated in band and track and played on Temple 7 on 7 and varsity football teams while attending Wildcat Nation. Keion transferred to Iowa during his senior year of high school and graduated from Hawarden High School in Hawarden, IA, but he was always a Wildcat at heart!
Keion was preceded in death by his mother, Amy Jean Baker and grandmother, Gloria Flournoy.
Keion leaves to cherish his memory, his father, Roy Johnson, Jr. (Nicole) of Hearne, TX, brother, Darrius Helms of South Sioux City, Nebraska, grandfather, Roy Johnson, Sr. (Sheila) of Tyler, Texas, godmother, Cassandra Christopher Jackson of Dallas, TX, grandmother, Kim (Baker) Barkley of Chatsworth, Iowa, grandfather, Steven Sands of Chatsworth, Iowa.
