Obituary

FELIX CHARLES
 
BORN April 2nd, 1932 in Chardonniere located in the Southern part of Haiti. He
was the last born to Asseline Rosembert Aka ( Grannyot) and Fabien Charles.
After graduating high School, he decided to move to the beautiful city of Petion-
Ville, to join His sister Mrs Anne Charles Boursiquot. In That beautiful city, he met
and married his belated wife Essaide Charles. They were married for 64 years,
they raised 6 children, until her passing in 2017. Besides caring for his own
children, my father also welcomed in many relatives that would migrate to live in
Petion-Ville. In his early 20s he discovered one of his many passions in life,
masonry work.
 
He accomplished some big construction project such the building of The
Presbyterian of St Peter church and Sainte Therese Church both located in Petion-
Ville, where he worked hard and was promoted as a foreman.
In 1971 Felix left his beloved Haiti and immigrated to the United States of
America. Where he reunited with his sister, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Shortly
after his arrival, he arranged to bring his two oldest children: Nadege and Fenol.
In 1975 he sent for his wife and the rest of the children.
Though new to the country, the culture, and the language he worked full time at
Children Hospital and part time at Mass General and finally he retired after
working for 32 years.
 
He loved his family and friends. Although he loved all his nieces and nephews, he
had a very special relationship with his nephew Jean Boursiquot, whom he viewed
not just as his nephew, but as one of his own sons. He valued friendship, and this
I witnessed, through the long friendship he had with Remy Prevoux who was
always there for him. Another person that was always around, was his cousin
Walky Thorchon.
 
Felix Charles was loved by many; his door was opened to All.
In the end, he lived an accomplished life, through his survived 6 children, 18
grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren.
On behalf of the family, we want to thank all that are here, families and friends
that are here to support us on this difficult day. The legacy goes on.
