Tribute to Robert Washington – 1964-2017

Robert Washington was born March 18, 1964 to Robert Washington and Mary Washington in Shorter, Alabama. He was the oldest of seven. He was my uncle but in reality he was more than that. He was more like a second father to me. He taught me, my brother, and my cousins how to be a man. Robert graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in Tuskegee, AL. Robert served in the military for 20+ years and was a retired veteran for the remainder of his life. He also worked as a correctional officer for the Alabama Department of Corrections. Robert has been happily married for 20+ years and has two children, who are my cousins.

Robert committed his life to raising his family into a loving and caring family. He invested his energy into his family and took pride into both of his sons. Robert was University of Alabama’s biggest fan of all time and would have been excited to attend this weekend’s game against Auburn University. Robert was very outspoken and basically would “tell it like it is” but at the same time he was the greatest person to go to for advice in any category. Uncle Robert, you will be missed.
