DANA KEY OF DEGARMO & KEY PASSES AWAY
Steve Green

Dana Key met Jesus face to face Sunday night, June 6, 2010. He will be missed by countless friends, family and fans.
One of the pioneer artists of Contemporary Christian Music....the duo known as DeGarmo and Key consisted of Eddie DeGarmo and Dana Key.  Eddie and Dana met in first grade and were lifelong friends. They played at a festival just a week ago.  Dana died suddenly from a dislodged blood clot this past Sunday night at the age of 56.

One of my favorite songs from them is a little known tune that's less than two minutes long.  I dedicate this song to Dana from all those who loved him as a follower of Jesus, a minister, a musician and a friend. Here it is:

Seasons change, days go by, people come and peole go. Though our paths lead us apart, they will meet one day I know.  For I owe you so much, dear friend, for all those treasured times.  For you've made me a richer man, having had you in my life.

Dana Key 1954-2010.

Listen this Sunday afternoon from 4 to 7pm to the Weekend Rewind for a tribute to DeGarmo and Key. Also, check out the Weekend Rewind page for more information.

Dana will really be missed. I had the opportunity to see DeGarmo & Key perform several times here in Chattanooga as well as in Memphis (Dana & Eddie's hometown) & at Atlantafest. They always gave an outstanding performance and proclaimed the Word of God to all.

Dana has joined the likes of Rich Mullins with a sudden & unexpected early passing. I guess our Lord was satisfied with both of their rich, productive lives for Him while on this Earth & called them each home early to enjoy their rewards as good & faithful servants to Him.
