The period April 03, 1920 to December 17, 2015 marked the span of Federick’s earthly journey. Not surprisingly, therefore, he was pre-deceased by both parents Maude and William Wason. Federick was also accompanied on his earthly journey by many siblings who included:

Herman Harding, Lilian “Mama” Savoury, Estelle Greenidge Carter, Julian “Mockadoo” Forde, Beryl Irene Mottley, William Sealy, Guyana (Guyana), Pearl Sealy (Guyana), Thomas Ward, of Coventry, England, Etheline Smith, Miriam “May” Barker, Lilian “Tunney” Beckles, Thelbert Sargeant, Bertha Shorey, Rex Wason, Ernest Wason and Eugene Collymore.

Of these Earnest remains with us.

Federick was also affectionately known as “Boy Sonny” but we called him Dad. He grew up in Sealy Hall, St. John. He was a member of the Anglican Church at St. Mark’s before transferring to the St. Philip Anglican Church.

Federick came to live at Edgecumbe, St. Philip, after he met and married Elrita Franklyn in July 1970. Together they had six children. Federick had fourteen children altogether and six step-children. Federick was a hardworking man. He worked at Edgecumbe and Hampton Plantations, as a truck driver and also as the chauffeur for Mr. Geoffrey Armstrong who served as Manager at both plantations. He was a jack-of-all-trades: driver, carpenter, farmer and painter - you name it. He worked the field and kept animals. He drove buses for a company based in Christ Church.

The children all had chores before and after school. When you see 4:30 pm, it was time for him to come home and if the chores were not finished, boy, it would be ‘licks can’t done’ and you better prepare to run or get away, because whatever he got in his hands he would be using.

Federick was a keen follower of West Indies cricket, in the days when West Indies played cricket. He had very few friends known to us his children. He was a man who kept very much to himself.

Federick was a no-nonsense person and a strict disciplinarian. He didn’t smoke and only drank sparingly. He placed very great value on schoolwork. When he said “No”, it was “No”. He was not a man of many words, never talking too much, so when he said something and you did not hear, that was your business. If you asked him to repeat, all he would tell you is that “double neck rope hang goat”.

Dad was a loving man, especially when it came to his grandchildren that he helped to raise, mainly Angela, Khyle and Kraig. Angela was never wrong for him and when you had to lash her, he would always say: ‘I tell wunna, keep wunna hands off her’.

He lost his sight about five years ago but he still managed to make it around the house and feed himself. He had a good memory and, oh my, for a small man he loved to eat. When you heard him calling for Mitchell, Junior or Jacqui, you knew that he wanted something to eat. When you said that he had already had something to eat, he would just reply “a car can’t run without gas” or “the mill must be fed”.

Federick Laurie Wason, Boy Sonny, dad, grand-dad, rest in peace and rise in glory.
