On February 6th, 2019, we lost our beloved son Anthony Washington.

Anthony was born in Tucson Arizona on October 13, 1993 to Jennifer and Nathaniel Washington III. Anthony is survived by his parents Jennifer Washington and Nathaniel Washington III, his son Jaxyn Pate-Washington, grandparents Kathy Robles, George and Elaine Thurston and Margaret Washington, half-brother and sister Sasha and Serafina Washington, aunts Toni Thurston, Kelly Johnson, Alicia Walters, uncles Dennis, Michael and Jeff Washington and MJ Walters, cousins Oliver Thurston, Kayla Reed-Oquita and Jeff Washington Jr. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Nathaniel Washington II and Henry Robles. Anthony was a gifted musician and talented artist. His beautiful heart and soul poured out into his passions. Anthony had the gift of great conversation and was admired at how he could meet a stranger and walk away making a new friend. He had such a kind heart and would give his last dollar or cigarette to a stranger in need. Anthony’s light was just too bright for this world to contain, for his light was meant to shine among the heavens. Anthony will truly be missed by all that knew him.

~THE BROKEN CHAIN~ WE LITTLE KNEW THE DAY THAT GOD WAS GOING TO CALL YOUR NAME, IN LIFE WE LOVED YOU DEARLY, IN DEATH WE DO THE SAME. IT BROKE OUR HEARTS TO LOSE YOU BUT YOU DIDN’T GO ALONE, FOR PART OF US WENT WITH YOU THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU HOME. YOU LEFT US PEACEFUL MEMORIES, YOUR LOVE IS STILL OUR GUIDE, AND ALTHOUGH WE CANNOT SEE YOU, YOU ARE ALWAYS AT OUR SIDE. OUR FAMILY CHAIN IS BROKEN AND NOTHING SEEMS THE SAME. BUT AS GOD CALLS US ONE BY ONE , THE CHAIN WILL LINK AGAIN

An amazing and intelligent person he was. His smile would brighten any room. I recall when he was just a little boy and re-connecting with him as a young man. You will forever be missed Anthony Washington.

It’s crazy to think that you’re no longer with us here on earth.
Your spirit was definitely out of this world and your personality will always be one of a kind.
It’s hard to find genuine and kind hearted people in this world.
You and your memories will be carried out from your loved ones.
I’ll be sure to tell your stories the best I can my friend.
Rest easy in paradise.
Love you brotha

When I first heard my brain and heart said no... I can not imagine the pain everyone else is going through. All i know is the memory that is playing on repeat. (My favorite memory of family tied only with one other.)
When I was there and I stayed with Jenny and Anthony for the night. He made me feel comfortable in a family that felt like strangers. He and Jenny both. We layed out on the trampoline watching stars and talking like young kids do. It is not fair but it rarely is... He is going to be incredibly missed.

Aloha, Jennifer and Nat

I am so terribly sorry for your sudden and tragic loss. Myranda emailed me the sad news with his obituary today and I was just stunned and so saddened to hear it. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like to lose a child with so much potential at such a young age and under such tragic circumstances. Even though I never meet Anthony I know that he must have been a very special young man because he was your son. My most heartfelt condolences go out to you both and to everyone else who had the privilege and good fortune to have known Anthony; I'm so sorry that I didn't. REMEMBER THE HAPPY TIMES!!

I first met Anthony when they came to FL for a visit. I remember one night Nat was doing sit-ups and Anthony was only two, but he certainly tried to keep up with dad. Later in life, he sent me a friend request and I was so happy to renew our relationship.
He was a beloved individual then, now, and always.
May God strengthen family members, friends, and every other person touched by Anthony.

Dear Jennifer and Nat,

The news from Jeff Sr today was heartbreaking. I'm sending my heartfelt condolences to you and the family during this difficult time.
I will always remember Anthony as the spirited little boy, playing with his cousin Jeffrey Jr. in Tucson, and the good time we had spending the weekend at your home when Nat was stationed in California. Although we were separated by distance in the military lives we lead, Anthony and you were lovingly kept in our hearts and thoughts, remembered always.

Love,
Marty

My Dearest Anthony,
I wish i had told you more ,how much I loved you, how much you always amazed me, how proud of the man that you had become. It breaks my heart that I can no longer. You were more than just my grandson. You were my little buddy, my inspiration. Your heart was so big, your spirit so free, you were the consummate gentleman, you were always a Joy to be with, and you constantly brightened my life. Your time here was too short,but you will go on in our hearts forever. Until we meet again, I Love you and miss you terribly.
