Obituary

Oliver Jerome Washington, Jr., was born March 28, 1980 to Oliver Jerome Washington, Sr., and Sabrina Washington of Mocksville, NC. God called Oliver "Drama King" on January 26, 2011 and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem and he answered to go home. Oliver attended PS164 and J.H.S. 189 in Flushing, NY and furthered his education at Hillcrest High School in Jamaica Queens. Once he moved to North Carolina, he pursued a degree in plumbing and welding at Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston-Salem. Oliver had a love for basketball, money, and most of all, he loved his family to the fullest. He also loved his "homies" in Bland Houses and Latimer Gardens, NC, and anywhere his presence was required. Everyone who met O.J. "Drama" loved his smile. He was a charmer and very funny at times. He touched so many hearts and he will be greatly missed. Drama wants to leave this message to all his "homies" all over: Use my body as an example, For all the hanging out is not what it's cracked up to be So homies don't do this to yourself Because you see where it got me. I'm gonna miss you all, Hold your head and don't let your body Rock Love You All He leaves to mourn one son, Jamarius L. Washington; two daughters, Talayah N. Washington and Essence K.
