Dwayne Inabinet was born December 26, 1962 in Washington, DC to the late Mary and Herbert Inabinet. Dwayne peacefully gained his wings on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at Inova Fairfax Hospital, in Falls Church, VA.
Educated in the DC public school system, he graduated from Calvin Coolidge High School in 1980. After completion of high school, Dwayne attended and graduated from Lincoln Technical Institute where he specialized in HVAC. In April 1983, Dwayne enlisted in the United States Army and served 17 years as a combat engineer.
After he separated from active duty in the Army, he moved back to Washington, DC where he joined and proudly served as a United States Capitol Police Officer from 1988 to 2006. In DC, he met the love of his life and had two children. Dwayne was a devoted family man and very active in the lives of his children. Family meant the world to him and he was non for doing whatever possible to ensure his family was well taken care of and happy.
Dwayne had many interests and hobbies. Music lover at heart, his favorite music genres spanned from R&B to Rap to Rock and Gospel. Blasting music in the house and in his convertible cars was something he truly enjoyed. He was the biggest Redskins fan in the District, Maryland, and Virginia area; win or lose he would always show his love and support – cheering the Redskins the entire football season. Dwayne would also use the Redskins when he engaged in his favorite past time – a hard core game of Madden on Playstation. He was an avid car enthusiast – muscle cars, corvette convertibles… just to name a few.
In his younger years, he was a professional skateboarder and was on a skateboard team. He participated in numerous skateboard competitions throughout the Washington, DC metro area. He was a total animal lover. He loved his 300-gallon aquariums and his exotic fish. And his honorary pet was another love of his life – his 10 year old Yorkie-Poo, Jonas. Dwayne referred to Jonas affectionally as his, “Boy.”
Dwayne was very spiritual and exemplified his love of God through his actions and the way he lived. Dwayne never met a stranger. He believed in living life to the fullest. He had a no-fear attitude because of his total trust in God. Dwayne did not worry about much and ensured others not to worry either – God will cover you. He always reminded people that he was a “Child of the Most-High God.” His welcoming spirit was unforgettable. Dwayne made everyone he met feel welcome by giving them a nickname. Dwayne was here doing his duty spreading the love, peace, and joy to all those he come in contact with.
