Obituary

Ezekiel Nathaniel Murdock, affectionately called Sidney, Uncle Sidney, or Zekes, was born on May 15, 1954, in Essex Hall, St. Andrew, Jamaica. He was the last of seven children born to Naaman and Icylin Murdock. He attended Essex Hall All-Age school and St. Mary’s College in St. Catherine, Jamaica. After high school, he followed the footsteps of his older siblings and entered the teaching profession. He taught as a pre-trained teacher at Cavaliers and Padmore All-Age schools respectively. However, he did not continue with a career in teaching, but worked with the Ministry of Agriculture for a few years before going on the farm work program. Sidney immigrated to the United States in 1984, where he fulfilled his passion of working as a mechanic. First, he worked at General Motors, then transitioned to self-employment in New Jersey, and later in Florida. This he did until recently, when ill health halted his ability to do strenuous work.

Sidney was more than a mechanic, he was highly sought after for his culinary skills. You could enjoy the delicious taste of his famous jerk chicken at jerk festivals in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. Whenever he was around, you were sure to savor his pumpkin soup, curried goat, or a succulent fish head. Sidney was very proud and ambitious. As a young man, he purchased an Austin Cambridge motor car-which was a huge accomplishment back then in the rural hills of St. Andrew. Uncle Sidney was a family man. He was always welcoming and accommodating to his family, and a genuinely kind and pleasant person to be around.

Sidney always placed the needs of others above his own. He gave freely, never leaving you empty handed. He was the eternal optimist, who saw the glass half full, never half empty. Uncle Sidney always offered to help; whether it was to fix your car or clean your yard, no job was too big or too small. He lived his passion-to be a blessing to others.

Though he still had unfulfilled dreams and encountered many losses and hardships, he lived his passion and can be acknowledged for the positive impact he had on the lives he touched. Sidney was a loving brother, a dear uncle, a faithful cousin, and a good friend. He will always be remembered for his loving kindness.

Ezekiel was predeceased by his son, Carlos, his parents, and other siblings. He leaves behind his only sibling, his sister Beatrice, his aunt, his nieces and nephews, cousins, and many friends. May his soul
rest in peace and light perpetual shine upon him.
