Headley Lee-Fatt

October 21, 1934July 2, 2019

Headley Lee Fatt was the third of five children born to Charles Lee Fatt and Lee Shimsee at Richmond St. Mary, Jamaica.

After completing his education, he joined the family business- a grocery store and bakery in Richmond. He met and married his late wife, Veta, in St. Mary. The union produced three children; Anthony, Dwayne and Camille. Headley and his family relocated to Kingston where he started his own business. He entered the food industry and established a bakery which he owned and operated until 1976 when he and his family migrated to the USA.

The socio-economic and political atmosphere in the island was the determining factor for their migration to the USA. The family first resided in Miami-Dade County and later relocated to south Broward County. The entrepreneurship blood ran through his veins and thus, he started his trucking business; signing contracts with various companies, which enabled him to provide for his family.

He was a supportive, loving and caring husband, father and grandfather. He was very helpful to friends and family. He could be called the modern day GPS! If you had problem finding a place, just call Headley and he would give you the accurate direction which would take you to your destination. He loved basketball and was a great fan of the Miami Heat. He also spent time playing dominoes on Saturday evenings.

He will be greatly missed. May his soul rest in peace.
