OBITUARY

Henry Leonard Ferguson

May 13, 1929October 9, 2020

Henry Leonard Ferguson was born in Clarendon, Jamaica WI on May 13, 1929 to the late Catherine Evans and Charles Ferguson. Henry is preceded in death by his sister Eva Vereta Ledford.

Henry was a single father who worked as an electrician to provide for his 7 children. On August 4, 1975, Henry married the love of his life Etheline Manning, whom he raised his children with. If you knew Henry, you know all he wanted was for his family to live a life of peace and stability. So it comes as no surprise that in 1980, Henry migrated his family from Jamaica Wi to the United States for a better life. He resided in Hempstead, NY and continued to work as an electrician until his retirement. In 2000, Henry and Etheline moved to Lauderhill, Florida where he enjoyed the sun for the last 20 years.

Henry was a lively, pleasant, sweet soul who enjoyed speaking and laughing with his loved ones. Henry donated to many charities and organizations. His contagious laugh could put anyone in a better mood. At home Henry enjoyed watching CNN news to stay up to date on the latest world news and believe me he did not skip a beat. He will be deeply missed and remembered for his loving, caring, free spirited ways, his jokes and laughs that often led up to a serious conversation about life. He also shared reflections of his upbringing and his wishes for his family.

Henry touched many lives in his 91 years of life and we are all blessed to have been able to share so much time with him. Henry leaves to cherish behind his wife Etheline of 45 years and his children Leroy (daughter-in-law Regina), Sophia (son-in-law Ron), Norman, Dorrin, Richard (daughter-in-law Kim), Dexter (daughter-in-law Myesha), and Ingrid. Grandchildren: Malline, Tamika, Crystal and Tracy. Great Grandchildren: Brittany and Omarion. Hosts of nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.
