John Keith Fleming of Round Rock, Texas, passed away on July 15, 2023, at the age of 55. John leaves an indelible impression on those who called him son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, friend, sojourner, teacher, mentor, and chaplain. John's brilliant spirit, radiant smile, and compassionate heart captivated everyone who had the chance to know him.

John attended Pearce Junior High and later John H. Reagan High School. While at Reagan, John continued growing his love of music as a member of the Reagan Raider High School Band under director James E. Williamson. He flourished as a flutist (flute and piccolo), was a section leader, played in the marching, jazz, and symphonic bands, and was Drum Major before graduating in 1986. John attended the University of Texas, where he joined the Longhorn Band under director Glenn A. Richter. In 1990 John became the first African-American Drum Major for the Longhorn Band, serving in that position through 1992. He was a dedicated member of Kappa Kappa Psi, a national band service fraternity. Dancing was one of John's favorite pastimes. During college, a friend convinced John and a few friends to form a dance group they named Prototype, which led to multiple performances across Texas.
