The passing of Dr. Edward D. Johnson

I sit here tonight with a heavy heart as I write this message. Yesterday Brothers Eddie (Magic) Johnson Zeta Mu and Jim Johnson Gamma Eta (University of Texas) lost their father Dr. Edward D. Johnson (also an ATO from the University of Texas).

For those that do not know, Dr. Johnson was instrumental in keeping the Zeta Mu chapter together in the early 1980’s. After we lost the house on 16th and Ave J, a Limited Partnership was formed with Dr. Johnson being the General Partner and a group of other ZM Brother’s being the Minor Partner’s. The partnership then purchased a couple of houses on 15th and Ave I so that we would have a place to call our own.

There will be a Memorial Service for Dr. Edward D. Johnson at 11:00 this Saturday at Chapelwood United Methodist Church in Houston.

Please keep Eddie, Jim and their sister Diane in your thoughts and prayers as they have now lost both of their parents this year. As any further details come to me I will post them.
