Obituary for George Douglas

George was born in Pan Gully St. Andrew, Jamaica West Indies to the proud parent Mabel Robinson on February 16, 1933. He was the oldest of 10 children. He was raised by his grandmother Elma Banner and his grandfather William Douglas.

George attended elementary school in Pan Gully St Andrew and Overlyn High School. He moved to Kingston, Jamaica in the 1950s where he sought and gained employment before briefly returning back to Pan Gully to assist his ailing grandparents and his mother. He later became the proud parent of Norma Theresa Douglas, Anthony Constantine Douglas, and Alrick Douglas. He returned to Kingston and would later meet Albertha Webster and from that union came four children. We lived as a blended family with my brother Michael Morris and Annette Morris.
George gained employment in several places in Kingston; but, was fortunate to become a small business owner in the Rockfort area in Kingston and after many years, of triumph, setbacks, showing his children the advantages of self-employment, he would retire from the business due to prolonged illness.

George was a philanthropist, despite experiencing his own hardship he never used this as a deterrent to extending a helping hand to anyone he sees in need, the numbers were countless. He did this in solitude without expectation of accolades or acknowledgement. Some we witnessed personally, other accounts came from those who were the recipients of his kindness. He seldom had a dull moment always the life of the party, and eager to share stories of his life and give parables with us which were priceless .

George touched many lives and will be sorely missed. He leaves to morn his passing our Matriarch Albertha Webster; his children Michael Douglas, Winsome Douglas, Marcia Douglas and Jacqueline Douglas, Alrick Douglas, Annette Morris and Michael Morris, 28 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; one brother other relatives and friends.
