Waymond Howard Black

January 25, 1958 ~ December 21, 2020 (age 62)


Waymond “Howie” Howard Black, 62, of Rocky Hill, suddenly departed this life on Monday evening, December 21, 2020. He was born in Hartford to the late Emily (Curtis) Moses and Waymond Black. Although Waymond grew up in Hartford he lived much of his life in Enfield with his late mother and sister.  He leaves behind his beloved son, Corey Rush, and his wife Keyathia of New Britain; his beloved daughter, Roshena Moore, of Memphis, TN; ten grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren.

     Waymond proudly served in the U.S. Army and would enjoy sharing stories about his travels with the military. He spent the last 8 years at the Veterans’ Home and Hospital in Rocky Hill, where his infectious personality touched many lives. He leaves behind many friends both fellow veterans and employees, especially Helen Nye (Sweeny) with whom he loved to visit and talk to daily. During the last years of his life Waymond was visited often by Marisol Sepulveda with whom he became increasing close to and missed very much during the months of the pandemic.  Waymond will be sorely missed by many, especially Teresa Capalbo of Wethersfield, his attorney, confidante, and friend over the last 10 years.

     Waymond will always be missed, loved and never forgotten.

     A burial with full military honors will be held at Cedar Hill Cemetery where thereafter Waymond will be laid to eternal rest with his mother and sister on a date to be announced in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to DAV (Disabled American Veterans), VA Regional Office, P.O.
