Matthew Dwayne Washington was born on August 27, 1990 to Austin E. Bond Jr. and Leah Washington. He attended Warren Township Schools to later become a talented Tattoo Artist.

He was a son, brother, grandson, father and a friend to many. Matthew was a very talented young man, he could sing, dance, and he could draw anything your mind could imagine. Matthew’s passion and love for his children was indescribably amazing. He loved his boys more than life itself and his kids loved him back the same.

Matthew leaves to cherish his memory to his parents, Leah Washington and Austin E. Bond Jr.; two bonus moms, Skyler Bond and Angela Baker; his beautiful children, Chance, London, and Logan; three brothers, Antwaun Washington, Austin E. Bond, and Isaiah C. Bond; his two lovely sisters, Ashlie Norris and Olivia Roberts; his grandparents, two wonderful aunts and a host of cousins.
