Washington Jr., William "Terry"
“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.

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
