Mr. Lester Bryan was born June 30, 1945 in Linstead St. Catherine, Jamaica. He was one of 13 children born to the late Arthur Laylor Bryan and the late Adline Thompson. Lester’s parents migrated to Manchester, Jamaica. His parents died at an early age. After the death of his parents, he went to live with his Aunt Lilly and later, Aunt Powell. During these years, he did not get a proper education, but later decided to make something better for himself. He became a businessman and opened his own store. He later opened a whole-sale shop, in Spanish Town, Jamaica. He was a determined hard-working man and with little education, he refused to use that as a scapegoat to deter him from excelling and being a provider for his family. Lester was a real fighter. He fought hard to achieve greater things in life. He would always say, “Mi a fight, Mi fight.”

In 1967, he migrated from Jamaica to Canada, then moved to Florida in 1998. He married Ms.
Shelia Johnson a few years later.

Strong in his faith, Lester loved his church. He was a very religious individual and a praying man. When he was forced with life’s struggles, he would say, “God will make a way.” Lester was a people person. He would go out of his way to help others or anyone in need. He was one who gave of himself wholeheartedly & did his best to leave no stone unturned. His natural leadership abilities, kindred spirit, and caring ways foreshadowed him. If you asked, he would give. If you called, he answered. If you needed him, he was there. That was his way. He was a joker. During time of sarcasm, he would always say, “Hear dah lick yah nuh!”

Lester leaves to cherish his memory and is survived by, Three brothers: Jeffrey, Bunny, and Sunny; Four children: Dawn, Bruce, Lotoya, and Nadia; Two Step-Daughters: Tanya and Allison; Eleven grandchildren: Raymond, Petula, Bathsada, Kaheil, Seanna, Marleana, Prince, Monica, Marktayler, Daniel, and Thalya; Seven great-grandchildren: Shayla, Eboni, Kemar, Marqus, Treyvon, Kionna, and Isaiah; Numerous aunts and uncles; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

Lester’s spirit will live on through each of us and future generations for a lifetime! May his soul Rest in Peace! On behalf of our family, we Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. May God continue to bless you all.
