SPEEDY FUNERALISED IN BARBADOS AND MEMORIALISED IN SOUTH JERSEY

SPEEDY FUNERALISED IN BARBADOS AND MEMORIALISED IN SOUTH JERSEY

BB WINANS   –  LAUGHTER  THE BEST MEDICINE

 

Saturday February 2, 2019, was punctuated with tears and fears after the passing of SPEEDY. Beloved Speedy… age 69… given name  Henderson Leroy Dawson, collapsed and died in his native Barbados after complaining of feeling unwell on arriving the morning of January 9th.

Speedy was funeralised in his native Barbados a fortnight later and memorialized in South Jersey where he called home for more than two decades.  Cannon James E Wynn of Christ the king Episcopal Church in Willingboro, presided over his funeral and gave comfort to the mammoth mourners who attended the somber mid-morning service and celebration of Speedy’s life and times.   

Speedy was a visible minority in the South Jersey neck of the woods but always displayed a sense of comraderie, loyalty and sophistry between and among all his friends and other social connections.

He was renowned for being single and not singular and his home in Willingboro served as a wash down lounge after a community bash and bashings.

Speedy was very churchulent and irrespective of his activity the morning after the night before he would find it mandatory to attend church and tithe .  Speedy would be missed for his sense of humor and resilience to his friends and compatriots in both his native Barbados and adopted South Jersey. 

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE – TILL WE MEET IN THE SWEET BYE AND BYE.
