Died: June 13, 2010
Henry Maytag, prominent Pennsylvania Avenue Washer, died yesterday from complications of filling his basin with cold/cold water. His age was unknown. Quiet but loud enough to be heard, Maytag never gave signs of declining health. Even in his final moments he worked on filling his basin to wash a load of dirty colors. It is unknown if he knew his end was coming, but whether or not he did, the courageous Maytag secretly clung to the belief that he would wash one more load of laundry.
Asked about the loss of her dear washing companion, Lildonbro, prominent blogger, described Maytag as a faithful washer in the last days of his life.
Maytag passed away quietly, surrounded by dirty clothes, lint and family. Currently the cause of death is unknown and there were no preexisting medical conditions.
I never got to say goodbye. I never got to complete one last wash. I don't think this is covered by the home warranty. I know a lot of time hasn't passed, but I don't want to be alone, I am already shopping around for the next Pennsylvania Avenue Washer.
