A memorial honoring the life of Calvin Winston Herbert will be held on Friday, June 23. Born Sept. 11, 1943, on Nevis to the now late James and Lilian Herbert, he quietly slipped away into a peaceful sleep on May 14, 2017, at the Brynwood Nursing Home in Monticello, Florida.
He will be remembered for his hard work, caring heart and generosity. He was united in holy matrimony to the now late Doreen Herbert.
Calvin leaves to cherish a lifetime of memories, six blended children: Charlene Davis of St. Croix, Shermaine Herbert of New York, Corlen Herbert of St. Croix, Calvin Herbert Jr. and his wife Debra of St. Croix, Michael Herbert of Tallahassee, Fla., and Nicole Hawkins and her husband Mannix of Tallahassee, Fla. He also leaves seven grandchildren: Shakur Herbert, Lithonia, Ga.; Shaquille Herbert, Jacksonville, N.C.; Ashley Wattley, Areannah Agathe and Jayden Gordon, all of St. Croix; Aliyah and Nicholas Hawkins, both of Tallahassee, Fla.; two great-grandchildren: Joshua Williams of St. Croix and Mariah Herbert of Jacksonville, N.C.; four sisters: Elena and Loretta Herbert of St. Croix and Nevis, respectively, Constantia and Mary Hanley of England and Nevis, respectively; and a host of other devoted relatives and friends.
His memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. at Ebenezer Methodist Chapel in Richmond, Christiansted, St. Croix. The family extends our gratitude to Dr. Khan and staff, the Hemodialysis Center, and the nursing staff of the Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center.
Rest in Peace, Calvin.
