Jawaylan Patterson Obituary

Mr. Jawaylan T. Patterson, 30, of Youngstown transitioned from earth to be present with the Lord on Saturday, January 13, 2024, while working at his place of employment.

            Jawaylan, lovingly known as “Way”, was born May 1, 1993 in Youngstown to the parents of Tineka Patterson and Joseph Allen Sr.  He attended East High School.  He knew and loved God, His Heavenly Father; and loved spending time with his family.  He enjoyed watching football and was an avid Baltimore Ravens fan.

            A bright and shining star, Jawaylan had a beautiful smile. He was a loving soul who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He had a compassion for people in need and would volunteer and donate his time and money with the “Youngstown United As One” (a non-profit charitable organization).  He had a passion for music and in his free time would write songs and record in the studio.  Jawaylan had quite a sense of humor and people would follow him on social media just to share their laughter with him.

            Providing for his family was of great importance to Jawaylan.  He was a dedicated and committed employee with Ellwood Engineered Castings for 6 years, laboring in various departments.

            Jawaylan’s footprints will be embroidered forever live in our hearts.  He will be greatly missed by his loving parents, Tineka Patterson and Joseph Allen; two adorable children, Ja'Layna and Jawaylan Jr. Patterson; a devoted fiancé, Natacha Pinero; loving siblings, Kewuan (Linda) Patterson, Joseph Allen Jr., Christopher Allen, Tamia Patterson, Dominique Johnson, Mirrah Justice and Brionna Winlock; his wonderful grandparents, Cassandra Hunter and Henry Patterson; great grandmother, Katherine Patterson; and a host of nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.

            Welcoming him at Heaven’s Gates were his great grandparents, James and Pearlie May Edmonds, Henry Patterson; and his grandma Nanette “Nanny” Ambrose.

            “To be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”  II Corinthians 5:8

            The family would like to extend their profound love and gratitude to all who have supported them during this difficult time.

            Visitation will be Thursday, January 25, 2024 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Fifth Avenue Community Church, 1361 Fifth Avenue, Youngstown.  Funeral services will follow at 12:00 noon.  Burial will take place at Tod Homestead Cemetery.
