ROBERT “BOBBY” CANYON WASHINGTON was born on September 19, 1953, to Robert Riggins and Willie Bea Washington in Saint Louis, Missouri, who both preceded him in death.

In his adolescence, Robert moved to Dallas, Texas, where he graduated from Madison High School as a young, talented football player.

After graduation, Robert enlisted in the Marine Corps from 1972-76 where he served as a combination welder earning several medals and decorations.

He was united in holy matrimony to Deborah Ann Washington in 1973. From this union, they were blessed with two daughters, LaTonya and Felicia.

Robert was employed with McDonnell Douglas (now known as Boeing) for many years while also working in his father's numerous business establishments, that of which include Lisa's Motel and Club 54.

He had a huge heart and love for his family. He would go without to help anyone who was in need. He took pride in spending time with his grandchildren and family.

He attended El Bethel Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Vincent Wilson.

Robert was preceded in death by his wife, Deborah Ann Washington and his sisters, Shirley Ann Rollins and Mildred Celia Blakeney.

He leaves to cherish his memory: two beautiful daughters, LaTonya Watson and Felicia Harris (Johnny); two loving granddaughters, Demetra King and Davianna Watson; three handsome grandsons, Josiah, Jeremiah, and Jonah Harris; sisters, Buelah Johnson and Lisa Riggins; brothers, Gregory Washington, Stevie Riggins, Ladell Kizart (Karen) and Angelo Jasper; and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
