American singer, record producer, disc jockey, filmmaker, music journalist, and actor Ahmir Khalib Thompson, also known as Questlove (stylized as Questlove), is also known by the stage name. Recently, his uncle passed away. Let’s look at the specifics of Questlove’s uncle Junie’s demise and his cause of death.
How did Questlove’s uncle Junie Die?
Today, Questlove posted on his Facebook page that his uncle had passed away. The notification says,
My dad’s youngest brother passed away. So many memories. A lot of small specific memories. First time I ever saw those tree air fresheners was in Uncle Junie’s car—-that aroma man.
To this day I keep 10 strategically placed in my 1st car—a habit I know I picked up from him. The only other human whose 8-track selection rivaled mine was his. I still collect them —(also still on a mission to find the rare gold-colored #AllNAll from EWF that he had). He taught me how to make omelets & the world’s best thin vanilla pancakes—-and yeah to this day still makes my way.
Both my sis & I sat by him when he used to operate the spotlight for my dad’s show back in the day (when I turned 9 I took over those duties)—-& crucial to my musical development—-back when cable tv was suburbia thing, one needed a trusted household to spend the weekend in.
All of 1983 when one out of every 17 videos was either Michael Or Prince it was Uncle June that allowed me to come to the spot Friday nights to watch MTV from 8-2 am then wake up at 7 am and watch MTV til 11:58 am (nothing replaces @SoulTrain) —and then 9 more hours of MTV (I mean I did other stuff too but all of my Duran/Yes/Huey/Genesis/Nena/Madness/Police education had to start somewhere)—-I know at the time it seemed like I wasn’t paying attention or even cared (especially the “get your education Ahmir, pay attention in school! Your dad works too hard for you to be getting these grades Ahmir!”)—-I was always listening and learning.
Rest In Peace Uncle Junie.

Tributes to Junie :
So sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing your memories. I think we all can remember who guided our musical ways. It’s funny how a long-forgotten song can bring back instant time and places but we can’t remember what we did yesterday. God bless you and your family
Yes, Uncle Junie will be missed. My heart was broken, but I know my uncle is in a better place! He was definitely a mentor to all of us nieces and nephews. Glad you got to make those pancakes with him! I had this picture of you two from Uncle Lee’s memorial! I have so many pictures of my uncle! So many great memories. We were all at Aunt Barbara’s house yesterday reminiscing. Rest In Peace Uncle Junie!
This is a wonderful tribute to your Uncle Junie! He left you with some wonderful talents and memories! Only truly special people can do that for us!
Even though I’m a stranger, I am truly sorry for your loss. I appreciate you sharing your memories of your uncle and the impact he had on your life. He sounds like the real thing.
I share your memories of early MTV but nothing will replace Soul Train and the smooth style of Don Cornelius in my heart. That groovy animated train in the credits and the dance lines.
