On Saturday, October, 26, 1929,
Donald Cornwall received the gift
of life. He was born in Dry River
District, Maggoty, St. Elizabeth,
Jamaica to May Myers and Harold

He was a baker by trade, but during
his early years, he did various jobs,
as he did not believe in not having
something to do. So he worked
at the Appleton Estate Sugarcane
Plantation, sold produce with his
family at the market in Christiana,
Manchester, and did some work at a
local bakery in his district. Later on,
in his 30’s, he moved to Kingston,
where he married Olive, and they
had three children, two boys and a girl. He also had a son from
a previous relationship, prior to his migration to Kingston. He
went on a work program to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where he
worked on the United States Base. He also went on a Farm Work
Program to Canada. Subsequently to all that, he went back to his
first love, baking. He worked at some well-established bakeries
before settling as the head Baker at Versair In Flight Services/
Goddard Catering Group. Even in retirement, he was asked to
stay on to train people, which he did until he finally retired in

He loved sports, especially cricket; he actually traveled across
the island to play the sport.

In 1992, he gave his life to Christ, something he was very proud
of, and became a member of the SDA Church, and he never
faltered from his faith even to the end.

In 2005, he migrated to the United States, but never once forgot
where he came from.

On September 29, 2019, he was admitted to the hospital with
pneumonia brought on by COPD. Life changed for him from
that moment. After leaving the hospital, he went to rehab then
was put on in home hospice care, as we wanted him home.
In spite of excellent care from his Vitas
Team and his family, he left us on May 8, 2020 to be at rest.
