Obituary

Words from Mr. Alphanso S. Burke

Alphanso S. Burke was born in Portland, Jamaica West Indies, (the fifth child of Garbut and Zamrine Burke) on the fourteenth-day of July, 1931. He attended Fair Prospect Government School, after finishing grade school he entered Buxton High School in Kingston, where, because of the high cost for tuition he left before completing his courses.

In 1954, at the age of twenty-three, he migrated to London, England where he lived and worked until May 1961. He then migrated to the United States to join his sister Daisy Parks, at which time he attended Robert Technical School and completed a course as an automobile mechanic. Although he completed this course he did not work in the field but became an employee of the New York City Transit where he worked as a Conductor on the Subway System for twenty years until his retirement.

He met the love of his life Inez in 1964. They were married in June 1966 and lived in New York for thirty years from which retired to Silver Springs Shores. They became members of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, and members of the local Citizens Patrol (SAFE).

I thank the Lord for His many Blessings for all He gave us.

Mr. Burke was preceded in death by his five siblings. We know of his love for his wife and family, whenever he spoke to Melcedes or Dorothy from his hospital bed or Rehab Center, his final words were, “take care of Inez and let her know what is happening”. He worried about her very much because they were never separated. They traveled the world over and had a wonderful life in retirement.

Left to mourn is his devoted wife Inez Burke; nieces, Melcedes Robinson, Delrose Porter, Yvonne Wright, Lorna Liddie, Dorritt Liddie, Patrice Burke, Arlene Vivaldi, Stephanie Parks, Deslyn George, Beryl Hue; nephews, Kevin Parks and Eugene Parks; cousins, Dorothy and Mavis Jackson; and a host of grand and great grand, nieces and nephews, friends and other family members.

Uncle Al will be greatly missed…
