James “Stank” Washington gained his angel wings on April 17, 2022, after a short, but tough, battle with cancer. He became a man who took care of anyone around him who needed it, even while he was fighting his own battle. When he wasn’t helping others with odds and ends, you could find him at the church, fishing, watching old western movies, or enjoying his favorite NFL football team, the Dallas Cowboys, on the television.
