William Washington Jr.

William Henry "Billy" Washington Jr., 80, of King George County died Wednesday, March 12, 2014, after a brief illness.

Born on Aug. 28, 1933, he was the son of Mildred Berry Washington and William H. Washington.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955 in Europe. He was a heavy equipment operator from 1960 to 1988 at NSWC, Dahlgren, where he retired from operating bulldozers and building roads in Pumpkin Neck for the government.

He was also an avid beef cattle farmer who loved vegetable gardening. Salt fish breakfasts with his many friends were always a "highlight."

He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Cary Upshur Washington; three sons, William IV (Pam), Thomas U. (Cathy) and Charles Thacker; seven grandchildren, Cassy W. Philipson (Noah), Summer W. Richardson (Josh), Thomas Jr., Dani, Elizabeth and twins McKensie and McKayla; brother Robert N. Washington (Ellen); sister-in-law Anne U. Doak (Richard); brother-in-law H. Neal Upshur; and numerous nieces and nephews.

At Billy's request, he will be cremated and there will be no services.
