THE MEMORIAL REFLECTIONS

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” | St. John 14:1 – 3 NIV

           

WILLIAM ROBERT WASHINGTON, SR., the oldest of the four sons of the late William Milton Washington and Shirley Minter Washington, was born October 4, 1953, in Newark, New Jersey. He matriculated through the school systems in New Jersey, graduating from South Plainfield High School, South Plainfield NJ.

William’s employment background included the steel mill industry and the A&P Grocery Store until he and his family moved to Broadway, North Carolina in March 1989. He then became a valuable employee at GKN Automotive Company and at the Weyerhaeuser Corporation of Sanford NC. He enjoyed spending time with his family – his most cherished possession. 

In his later years, William experienced health challenges that limited his mobility. In the early morning of Monday, November 15, 2021, William finished his work with us and transferred to his heavenly home to receive the promised joy of rest and peace from God.

William was preceded in death by his father: William Milton Washington and his brother: Tony E. Washington.

The precious and fond memories of William will forever be cherished in the hearts and souls of his two sons: William Robert Washington, Jr. of Springfield NJ and William Robert Washington, III of Broadway NC; 11 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; his mother: Shirley Minter Washington of Broadway NC; his brothers: Lloyd W. Washington and Jeffrey M. Washington of Broadway NC; his aunt: Valerie Washington of Youngsville NC; and generations of nieces, nephews, cousins; and a plethora of friends.
