William James Watkins’ journey began May 19, 1992, when he was born to William Woodruff and Toni Watkins in Dayton, Ohio.
Will, affectionately known as “Kash,” played AAU basketball as a youth. He graduated from Columbus Africentric Early College with college credits. Kash had a passion for doing hair; he named himself the “Closure King” as he slayed many heads in the City. He had a very good bond/relationship with his clients. He was always the life of the party and loved to have fun.
He loved to travel with his mom, little sister, Aunt Danielle, and his two best friends, Sabrina and Keeks.

Kash loved his family. He leaves to cherish memories: his mother, Toni Wilson; father, William (Tonnette) Woodruff; sisters, TaNia Wilson and Dominque Stewart; brother, Jacquez Stewart; paternal grandmother, Mary Woodruff; aunts, Cookie Woodruff, Danielle Hariston, and Dakia Horsley; uncles, Charles (Carolyn) Woodruff, Eric Rustin, Garland (Diane) Watkins,
