Shirley Thomas Furbert was born in Bermuda to Leopold Furbert and Marjorie Darrell on July 23,1934. He grew up in Hamilton Parish in a very Christian household, and as a young man he enjoyed swimming, fishing, and cricket. S.T. Furbert is survived, by four siblings – Eloise, Juanita, Roy, Webster and Vernon (deceased). On August 2, 1956, S.T. Furbert married The Love of His Life Candace Mary Elizabeth Williams of Warwick, Bermuda and together the union raised four children – Gregory, Donald, Laverne (deceased), and Gavin. Growing up as a young man he joined the Bermuda Police Force, and then later relocated to the United States with his new wife. Once there he held down work with, laundry service, barber school, and chef work, until he positioned himself at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, and was promoted to the position of Supervisor. Our parents raised us in Brooklyn, NY until 1974, and within that same year they purchased a home In Philadelphia, PA on Green Street. S.T. retired from Pfizer in 1990. S.T. traveled between Bermuda and the U.S., he looked forward to spending time with his sisters and brothers in Bermuda. He was a dedicated father and husband to our family. S.T. was a fighter, his health was failing, and at the end he did things his own way. S.T. departed this life on Tuesday August 22, 2017. He leaves to cherish his memories, his three sons Greg (Michelle), Donald (Tonya), and Gavin (Yvette), 13 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and many family and friends. Shirley Thomas Furbert was fair, but firm and loved by all – he was a gentle giant that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was a mentor and survivor, he will be missed dearly. God finally called him home to reunite with Candace – so now they'll be together forever in heaven.
