Andre Lamont Johnson, the son of Patricia Johnson, was born          December 2, 1987 in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Andre attended Creston Middle School and graduate from of Warren Central High School in the Class of 2006. Andre was attending Indiana Wesleyan University.
“Dre”, as he was affectionately known, loved music and played for many churches in the greater Indianapolis area.  Playing the drums was his passion and you could find him “on a kit hittin’ with the best”.  Although a true fan of Michael Jackson’s artistic achievements, Dre’s passion for praise and worship could not be rivaled.  A young man determined to achieve greatness, he was known and loved for his beautiful smile and deep dimples.  Dre often spoke his mind and wasn’t afraid to “tell it like it is”.
However, the pivotal point in his life was the birth of his most         precious gift, his daughter, Akili Madison Johnson. The love for his daughter was evident.  At times you could find him singing to her, combing her hair and the two of them even brushing their teeth together! There was truly an inseparable bond between father and child. Dre’s example of love, affection and dedication for his daughter challenged other young men to step up to the plate to be responsible dads to their children.  Dre had decided it was time to grow up and become the man and the father that God had destined him to be.
If there was a family function, you could always count on Dre being there. He truly loved his family and his friends, but most of all he truly loved the Lord Jesus Christ. Most recently you could hear him striking up conversations about the Lord with a new found passion for the Word of God..   A member of Eastern Star Baptist Church, Dre could be found serving, worshipping and fellowshipping with members young and old. You could    always find him in the circle of the preachers, his favorites, being Pastor Jeffrey A. Johnson, Sr. and Pastor James Jackson with whom he shared special bonds.  As a little boy, one could often find him behind the podium after bible study, emulating his favorite   pastor.
Andre Lamont Johnson departed this life on Friday, August 3, 2012, at the age of twenty-four years old.  He was preceded in death by grandmother, Catherine Johnson-Smith; uncles, Robert “Bob” Cooke and David Johnson Sr. and cousin, Sheila Bonner Avery. 
   He leaves to cherish his memory:his daughter, Akili Johnson (Alecia Upshaw); loving mother, Patricia Johnson; sister, DeAndrea Johnson; aunts, Linda Bonner, Marion Cook, Juliette Johnson-Hill (Tony) and Beatrice Johnson, a host of cousins, relatives, friends and church family.
