Obituary for Jahfari Samuel

On June 12 , 2016 at the early age of 34, our beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, and friend was called home to eternal peace and tranquility.

Well known by many as "Wick", Jahfari Samuel was born on May 4, 1982 to Anna Hosea and Ildred Samuel. His formative education began at P.S 103 (Bronx, NY), Jarvis Elementary (St Thomas VI), and JHS 113 (Bronx, NY). He later moved back to St Thomas where he worked at Greenhouse and UVI in the cafeteria. Jahfari was a very caring, loving, amiable, and comical young man with a charming and unforgettable smile. He had a chuckle that was so unique that everyone around him would laugh too.

Wick loved being around his family, especially his children and mother. He enjoyed summer vacations, beach outings, and family/friend gatherings. He also enjoyed mastering video games, along with playing and watching sports, such as basketball. He always was dancing, listening to music, and reminiscing about old times. His spirit was a great one and he will be truly missed.

He leaves behind to cherish their fond memories: his mother Anna Hosea; his father, Ildred Samuel; stepmother, Loretta Forbes; stepfather, Lorne Victoria; three children Jahlysha Samuel; Jahfari Samuel; and Jah-Ni Samuel five sisters, Shemeala, Natishya, Shena, Ishana and Jahyanna; two brothers, Maki jah and Isiah aunts Ebere Hosea, Karen Colbourne and Blanche Romou uncles Wentworth Christopher; Orville Colbourne and Ishmael Colbourne godmother Lelia Donovan
