In Loving Memory of James T. Washington

On Thursday, October 12, 2017, James T. Washington heard God's whisper calling him home. He gave his hand to God and slowly drifted away, knowing that with our love we will be together again someday.

James Washington, affectionately called "Jim" was born March 25, 1933 to Leroy and Jennie Mae Washington in Capels, West Virginia. He married Esther V. Boone on Aug 18, 1955 in Hampton, Virginia and together they raised 3 sons. Jim was a loving and dedicated husband and father and believed in strong family ties. He was a long standing and faithful member of Corinth Baptist Church.

Jim proudly served his country in the United States Air Force for 23 years and retired at the rank of Master Sergeant. During his military service he received the Air Force Longevity Service Award, Air Force Good Conduct Medal and National Defense Service Medal. Jim was a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam wars. After his military service, he continued to serve his country as an Industrial Engineering Technician with the United States federal government.
