A special musical goodbye was organized today for famed Kashmere High School band director Conrad Johnson. Kashmere High alumni performed at Johnson's funeral services Friday morning at Kingdom Builders Center. Conrad Johnson died this past weekend at age 92. Just two days before his death, the same band had reunited to honor their former teacher.

Johnson began his renowned teaching career in 1941, and his stage bands won 42 of 46 competitions from 1969 to 1977.
