Usign “Herbie” Gilpin, The Beloved Son of Albertha Kerr and Charles Gilpin was born on September 1, 1943. Herbie departed this life surrounded by family on January 29, 2019. He attended Norwich Primary School in Portland Jamaica, West Indies.

After completing school, he became a bus and truck driver in Jamaica for many years. He was also registered as a farm worker and was sent to Canada to work in 1976 and Florida in 1979. He then emigrated to the United States in 1982 and completed Tractor Trailer Driving School in 1983 gaining his license to drive Commercial vehicles and be in the Transportation industry. He worked at Sealy Mattress company for many years travelling across the United States and Canada delivering goods to customers. He later worked for Star Market Corp in Belmont.

He was married to Pearlita Grossett on July 26, 1980 in the parish of Portland, in Jamaica WI.
He was very kind with a willingness to help others. He was strong willed and charismatic as well as the life of party. He was very funny especially when he would recount his adventures in Jamaica (we will leave it at that!).

He is survived by his wife, Pearlita, his sons Courtney, Christopher, Lincoln, Wayne, Kevin, and Cyprian, his daughters Sharon, Cran, Joan and Andreen, his stepsons Caron, Devon, and Milton. He is also survived by 30 grandchildren, a host of sisters and brothers, nephews and nieces, great-grandchildren, other relatives and friends. He will be missed by all.

There will be a Viewing on Friday February 15, 2019 from 10:00 to 11:00am followed by Funeral Service at 11:00 O’clock at Morning Star Baptist Church 1257 Blue Hill Ave., Mattapan, MA 02126

Interment: Oak Lawn Cemetery

Dear Gilpin Family and Friends, Your pain is in our hearts too. Hope it helps a little to know that others care so much. May the special memories and wisdom your Dearly Loved One gave be something that you will always cherish. May the comfort that only our Heavenly Father through His Son, Jesus Christ, provides, comfort your hearts and help you endure. 2nd Corinthians, Chapter 1 verses 3 and 4. Deborah B., Boston, MA

To the family and friends of Usign.
Please accept my sincere condolences. Death is never an easy thing to deal with. I have to reflect on Jesus response when he learned that Lazarus his friend had died. At John 11:33,35
We read that Jesus was troubled and that he wept. Jesus has the power to resurrect and he wept over this death. In the very near future Jesus will exercise this same power to resurrect our dear loved ones back to an earthly paradise. John 5:28,29.

May you find comfort in the hope of the resurrection.

My heartfelt condolences to the Gilpin family and friends. I'm so very sorry for your great loss. It's very difficult to lose a loved one. May you find comfort in your memories. And may you find peace in the promise Jehovah God made that there's going to be a resurrection, which means we have a real hope of being reunited with our loved ones who have passed away - Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29.
