Obituary


 Obituary

Justin Pierre NeGale Washington was born to Tommy Collins and Angela Washington in Chicago, Illinois on June 23, 1990. Justin was raised by his parents and his paternal grandparents in a home filled with love along with, Julius, Sharess and Kiara.

Justin’s family moved to South Bend, Indiana in 1998 where he accepted Christ at an early age uniting at Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend Hardy N. Petty.

Justin's formal education began at Lafayette Elementary School leading to his continued learning at Navarre Middle School. Justin then attended Washington High School. Justin never gave up on broadening his abilities and after High School he stretched farther and attended Ivy Tech Community College and Ross Medical Education.

Justin didn't take his fatherhood likely and was always working to make sure his children's needs were met. Justin’s most recent job was at Hoosier Tank as a Line Supervisor and a MIG Welder. Most of Justin’s job history stemming from 2008 until now all unknowingly dealt with his foundation of family love, as they all covered welding which by definition means joining things together.

Justin could always be counted on to be the light and life of the party. He was a jokester and very few knew he shared the family love of music as well as lifted his voice in song. You see Justin couldn't just sing, but he could SANG. He was a big supporter of his family, had an unequaled love for his grandmother (Elizabeth Washington) and unconditional love for his children.

Justin married his wife, Jerica on September 3, 2016. Together they shared the love of eleven children (six girls, five boys) and one currently waiting to become familiar with his legacy.

On Monday February 1, 2022, the job Justin loved doing, (welding) became a reality to us all. Justin unexpectedly took his job of welding (holding things together) to the next level of our life. Forever welding his family and friends together in love.

Justin leaves his legacy of love and commitment to his wife of five years Jerica Washington; loving parents Angela Washington and Tommy Collins; six daughters (JaNyia, I'anna, Jaydah, JaVeya, Kennedi, Jayla); five sons (Justin Jr., Jayden, Major, Justus, Jaxxon) and one child on its way; six brothers, Corvale Grant (Nicole), Julius Washington Sr., Daniel Collins, Trell Collins, Kai Collins, Jeremiah Collins); five sisters; Courtney Grant, Dominic Collins, Brianna Collins, Savannah Collins, Sihanna Collins); seven honorary brothers, Artrell Hagler, Kenny Jones, Tre Thomas, Willie Thomas, Tyrus Cloy, Carlmethean  Stansberry, Steven Jimerson, his god sister, Fallon Sullivan, two special sister's/cousins Sharess and Kiara.

Waiting to welcome Justin with open arms of love and fellowship is his beloved grandmother's Elizabeth Washington and Brenda Johnson, his grandfather Tommy Lee Johnson, four aunts, Madeline Johnson, Tawon Johnson, and Tamickia Riley; three uncles, Ivory Kendall Washington, Bernard Moses and Thomas Moses.

Justin (Man Man, Yella, Construction Worker, Pimpen) Pierre NeGale Washington leaves a host of other relatives and friends that bow in submission to the will of God and say Amen.
