"THE BOSS"


On June 14, 1914, a son was born to Edward and Ada Joseph at Nisky
No. 6B, St. Thomas, Danish West Indies, and subsequently christened
CYRIL ANTHONY JOSEPH, the first son born of this marriage.
He was brought up in the customs of the time to be industrious,
respectful and God fearing. He went through normal public schooling up
to completion of the ninth grade, after which he was called upon by his
father to go to work for economic expediency.
He was placed in the field of machining and mechanics at the then
West Indian Co. Machine Shop from which he developed a mania for
automobile mechanics. When the three-pedal Model T Ford was the vogue
at the time, he attempted and completed, along with other interested
persons, the installation of a gear-shift transmission and foot operated
accelerator in a Model T Ford. Thereafter he further developed into a
master automobile mechanic, starting "under the tree." As "The Boss"
he taught many others who themselves became respected automobile
mechanics; and later established his own auto repair shop.
During that span of years he became a baseball enthusiast, which he
was to the end, and shared radio broadcasts with Len Stein on "Heine-
ken's Bull Pen," and later with Larry Bryan on "After Innings." Has any-
one ever successfully engaged "The Boss" in a conversation, other than
one on baseball, while he was listening to a radio broadcast or looking at
a telecast baseball game? It is doubtful.
The years were slowly taking their toll on the energetic physical
body of "The Boss" and forced him into retirement from his livelihood
trade. But his spiritual body was building up to the challenge of religious
service.
He took the torch, ran the course, and did well; a member of the
Men's Fellowship Choir, Island Conference, and Lay Preacher of the
Nisky Moravian Church at his earthly life's end.

Zi I E A

God has seen it fit to call home another top ranking
member of our church family, Bro. Cyril Joseph. When I see
or hear Cyril, I can't help but remember those Sunday School
picnics at Corri (Sapphire) Beach. He was father and protector
of those of us whose fathers never attended such functions.

God bless you. The surmountable work that you have done
for our congregation will always be remembered.
