Mr. Kentay Deshaw Washington was born January 17, 1990 in Saginaw, Michigan to Isaiah Smith and Barbara Doxie. God called his name to be with Him on Thursday, March 12, 2020 at the age of 30 years.

Kentay, lovingly called “Tay”, attended Saginaw Public Schools. He attended House of Prayer with his father and this is where Tay was baptized into the body of believers. He later joined New Generation Church. Without a doubt, Tay believed in God and was a man of strong faith. He would often say “I got faith in God.”

Tay enjoyed singing and basketball, but he especially enjoyed fishing with his father. He was always groomed with precision, clean-cut and well-dressed with a charming smile to match. He loved his family dearly, especially his parents and siblings. He will truly be missed by everyone that loved him.
