Herbert Selburn Bernard

February 1, 1933 - September 30, 2020

In Loving Remembrance <br /> <br /> Herbert Selburn Bernard Passed away peacefully on September 30, 2020 at the age of 87, in Mandeville Regional Hospital, Jamaica. <br /> <br /> "Selburn" as he was fondly known, was born to Robert Bernard and Zetela Bernard nee Thompson on February 1, 1933, in the District of Altamont, Parish of Portland, Jamaica. As a young man he immigrated to London, England where he met and married his lifetime love, the late Valrie Elease Bernard nee Thompson, and together they had 4 daughters. He worked as a Painter and Decorator most of his life in England, and later worked and resided in the U.S.A. with his wife and 3 of his daughters, until eventually retiring to Jamaica with his wife Valrie. <br /> <br /> Selburn's favorite thing to do was spend time with his family and he loved traveling and enjoying vacations with them. He enjoyed 55 years of blissful marriage before his wife's passing. His 4 daughters were "daddy's little girls" and the light of his life. He was blessed to see 10 grandchildren grow into adulthood, and had 8 great grandchildren to enjoy in his later life. <br /> <br /> Selburn was preceded in death by his loving wife Valrie; his brothers and sisters Kenneth, Donald, Clinton, Mavis and Cynthia; and his cousins Kathleen, Agnes, Alma and Calvin. He leaves behind his children Paulette, Sonia, Marcia and Andrea; his grandchildren Charlene, Corrine, Daniel, Deanna, Shavaun, Kyle, Sade, Sherrelle, Cameron and Khai; his great grandchildren Madison, Caiden, Devantai, Elise, Morgan, Ayjah, Malaya and Jacob; his brother Headley; his cousin Lola; and numerous nieces and nephews. <br /> <br /> Everyone who knew Selburn loved him, he was a kind gentle man who took everyone under his wing, and he will be tremendously missed by family and friends alike. <br /> <br /> He has gone Home to be with his wife and the Lord. <br /> <br /> RIP

    Dear Sel,

    Thank you for the advice you gave me as a father-in-law. I’ve enjoyed all the time we’ve spent together over the years. You were more than just a father-in-law to me, you were more like a brother. Sel rest in peace. You were the best father-in-law I could have asked for. You will always be in my heart. Roy
