Samuel Randolph Pilgrim, affectionately known as "Ranny", "Pilly" and "Bercoo", age 84, resided at #99 Joypa Drive, Frere Pilgrim, Christ Church.

He was very active and was driving in his 80s, only within the last 2 years did daddy slowed, and during the last year and a half he was a resident at Rendezvous Retreats Retirement Nursing Home, Rendezvous Ridge, Christ Church. Ranny, the name everyone called him, passed away on January 25th, 2022, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital after a brief stay from Anemia and secondary complications from COVID.

Samuel Randolph Pilgrim was born on June 24th 1937 at Powder Road, in the parish of St Michael. His mother was the late Leotta Gwendolyn Pilgrim, better known as Gran or Gwennie.

She hailed from Drakes, St. Philip. And his father, Louis Piggot, from Spooners Hill, St Michael. Ranny's siblings were Sheila Pilgrim and St. Clair Pilgrim. Ranny was educated at Roebuck, until the age of 16. Later in 1961, he went on to work at Banks Barbados Breweries Ltd.

Ranny was the proud father of children from two unions, Doriel Clarke and Yvonne Gaskin. Irrespective of any differences, Ranny always ensured that his children were well served, and provided for them to the best of his ability.

In his later years, Ranny shared a union with Monica "Pat" Howell for over 30 years and always ensured that no one lacked for anything.

He was employed at Banks (Barbados) Breweries Ltd. for over 45 years. His first task when he was hired at Banks Brewery was to make beer crates.

Throughout his career he had many tasks, but he was particularly fond of being one of the dedicated Forklift drivers in the Distribution Center.

April of 1992, Randolph Pilgrim won the distinction for "Employee of the Month", this was overwhelming voted by his fellow colleagues, and he was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation.

Also, on a Thursday night, September 6th 2001, at Banks (Barbados) Breweries' 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Awards celebration, which was held at Sherbourne Conference Centre, he was honored for being the only employee currently at Banks to have started with the company in 1961 and received two standing ovations.

Having only reported out sick only two times in the past 20 years, he received an award for his 40-year contribution to Banks and was also saluted as a lifetime employee.

He retired in 2006. Throughout the years, his places of residence were Laundry Road Country Road, Garden Land, St. Michael; 2nd Avenue Harts Gap, Christ Church; 99 Joypa Drive, Frere Pilgrim, Christ Church; Rendezvous Retreats Retirement Nursing Home, Rendezvous Ridge, Christ Church. Ranny had many hobbies and loves.

He was an accomplished cricketer, was also a member of Empire Club and played First Division cricket for Banks (Barbados) Breweries Ltd. He, no doubt, would have played with some of the greats of the time. His love for music was epic.

His interest ranged from Calypso and Spouge, to Soul Music, and everything in between. He loved Brook Benton, the Platters, the Drifters, the Thames, Sam Cooke, The Mighty Sparrow, Lord Kitchener, Mighty Shadow, Crazy, Sir Don, RPB, The Invader, Gabby, Ace Cannon, Bob Marley, Dobby Dobson, and many more.

His other love was horse racing. One would have been able to find him at the Garrison early in the morning and in the evening, with a group they called, "The Parliament". And even though you would have found him on race-day, he never bet on any horse. For he did not believe in betting.

He loved Christmas, especially Christmas lights. He would put lights on everything.

Charity was also something that came naturally to him, as he would often provide his time to help others.
