Washington Jr., William "Terry"

Obituary

“The Life of William Terry Washington Jr.”

William “Terry” Washington Jr. was born November 29, 1964 to the parentage of William Terry Washington Sr. and Ruth Alma Busby (Washington) in Paris, TN.  He accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 12.  He attended Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church. 

Terry attended Dallas Independent School District and graduated in 1983 from Thomas Jefferson High School.  He worked at Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital from 1994-1995. He then transitioned to City Place from 1996-2011.  Terry began working for Culinaire International Inc. at the George Bush Presidential Museum from 2012- Present, where he found great joy working with his colleagues.  

Terry enjoyed sports, music, and cooking.  He had a passion for cooking! We would often tease him by telling him to get a new hobby, because cooking wasn’t it! Terry didn’t pay us any mind, as he would whip up another dish for us to try. Terry could light up a room with his smile and sarcastic sense of humor.  He was liked and loved by many.  Terry loved to dance, and would often take center stage to show off his moves. As soon as he heard the music, his feet would just begin to move! Most of all, Terry enjoyed living life. 

William Terry Washington Jr. gained his heavenly wings on October 18, 2019. He is preceded in death by his father, William T. Washington Sr. and his mother, Ruth A. Washington.

He leaves to cherish his memories; siblings, Rosalin Jeanette Washington, Darryl Clayton Washington, Derrick O’Neal Washington, and LaKesha Dione Smith (Kevin Smith) all of Dallas, Texas; four nieces and one nephew; Brandon, Deziree’, Chelsei, Darrian (Houston, Texas) and DaraKnique; three great nephews and one great niece; Ashton, McKenzei, Mekhi, and Makari, all residing in Dallas,Texas; aunts, Barbara Jo Tharpe (Raymond) (Paris, TN), Cathy Busby (Paris, TN), and uncle Bobby Busby Sr. (Nadine) of Tulsa, OK, aunt Peggy Knox (West Chicago, IL), uncle Jimmie Washington (Brookhaven, MS); and a host of loving cousins, other relatives and friends.

    Terry was a good man, a hard work, a fun guy to be around. He would not hesitate to give you his last. I will miss that brother, and may He rest in peace

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
