If you are coming from another school we would like you to wear your school colors.
“Will” William Christopher Washburn, 15, of Hurricane, WV, passed away Monday, April 27, 2020 at Teays Valley Hospital. Will was born March 12, 2005, in Huntington, WV to parents Brian and Bridget Conway Washburn of Hurricane, WV.
There are actions that create great moments, but GREATNESS is measured by much more than a moment. Will is great. He is kind, compassionate, thoughtful, talented, loving, helpful and passionate. His kindness has imprinted in our hearts and will never be forgotten. He has left us with a new discovery that his GREATNESS was beyond measure and that greatness will leave a legacy.
That legacy will live on in a foundation, the LLWW Foundation. Annually, the foundation will honor Will by giving two scholarships, one for athletics and one for character. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to LLWW (#longlivewill) at 19 Brookgreen Dr., Hurricane, WV 25526. Long live Will Washburn.
A larger community memorial will be held at Liberty Square in Hurricane, WV on May 16th at 4:00 PM- details will be released for this celebration at a later time.
