A Time to Be Remembered
In his early years Wayne as we call him was also known as “Too Tough Ken”. Not too tough in the bad way but because he was strong and cool. And of course, we will never forget his first car, his love, that 1979 silver grey Monte Carlo with “Too Tough” written on the doors. That was his pride and joy then. Wayne had a great love for hunting and fishing. He also enjoyed listening to his music, playing dominoes and being with his family and friends. He was an avid Pittsburgh Steeler’s fan.
Wayne leaves to cherish his memory two sons–Kenneth Wayne Washington, Jr. and David Undre Trotter; three grandchildren–TaNiya Trotter, DeUndre Trotter and Dazara Trotter; four sisters–Tina McCoy Mitchell, Carolyn Washington, Valerie Washington and Catherine Washington; four brothers–Eric Taylor, Kerry Taylor, Steven Washington and Darren Washington; special friend Katherine Hudson and last but certainly not least , his best friend, ride to the end, David Goal and a host of other relatives and friends.
