June 22, 1967-Oct. 5, 2022
Michael Washington was born June 22, 1967, in Alexandria to Rosemary Washington and Frederick Michael Severin. Together they birthed a masterpiece, a kind heart, full of swearing words, but helpful and compassionate to everyone around him. He passed away Oct. 5, 2022, in Denver, Colo.
After the passing of his mother at an early age, he was taken in and cared for by his aunts, especially his guardian, the late Nancy “Mimekie” Washington. In 1985, Michael moved to Denver with his soon-to-be wife, Patricia. He built his life in Colorado with his wife, daughters and son. Having come from the small town of Natchitoches, he was committed to ensuring his family had everything they needed to succeed and build wealth and family. The top of Michael’s priority list was FAMILY and memories. He was a family man, a leader, an entrepreneur, servant and his highest ranking was being a FATHER!
Michael “Too Too” Washington’s memory will live in the hearts and mind of those who loved him, his loving wife, Patricia Washington; daughters, LaTisha Williams, LaKisha Washington and LaQuisha Washington; son, Michael Washington; father, Frederick Michael Severin; brothers, James Rachal, Alex Curry, Melvin Blount, Douglas Severin, David Severin and Sean Severin; sisters, Brenda Washington, Wendy Severin, Brittani Nolen, Erika Severin, Dorothy Washington Peterson and Rosemary Washington-Elie; aunts, Eula Harris, Essie Harris and Heagy Curry; uncle, Z.
