Obituary for Usign Alexander Gilpin

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
