On August 28, 2020, Kwasi Imhotep transitioned from this life to the life that follows. Kwasi (birth name: Milton E. Nixon) was born on November 26, 1944 in Norfolk, VA to parents Mrs. Lillie O. Person and Raymond Nixon.
Kwasi was an Air Force veteran and received his undergraduate and graduate education at Norfolk State University and the University of Southern California. He worked many years as a professional for the Department of Defense in Washington, DC.
He was predeceased by his mother, Lillie O. Nixon, his father, Raymond Nixon, his brothers Raymond Nixon Jr. and Elmer Nixon.
He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Mrs. Jeanneatha L. Nixon, four children: Timothy C. Nixon, Zoar H. Freeman (Alonzo), Dorcas A. Askew (Linwood) and Lillian O. Nixon; grandchildren LaKeith Ward, Aeysa Nixon-Bright (Kenny), Domonique Askew and Vision Griffin-Nixon, 8 great-grandchildren, 2 loving sisters: Villa Johnson and Doris Johnson, special nieces: Elaine Bailey and Fiata Jones, a special mentee: Jay Jenkins and a host of family and friends.
Kwasi was very proud to have been raised in the Berkeley section of Norfolk. He happily reminisced on his Berkeley upbringing and participated in many events that celebrated Berkeley and its traditions.
After touring the ancient Afrikan grandeur of Egypt, Kwasi was very active in the community both as an organizer of Ancient Afrikan cultural events and as a teacher of Ancient Afrikan history. He educated and influenced thousands throughout the country who were seeking knowledge of ancient Afrikan history and culture. He was an adamant foe of the murderous atrocities committed against hundreds of millions of Afrikan people who were enslaved and slain by the adherents of Christianity and Islam.
Kwasi departed this life with no regrets in the full belief that he did all he could do to help his people to reclaim their ancient glory and only asks that those surviving him should do likewise.
