In Memoriam


Randolph Alexander Wilhelmsen, Jr. was born in Jamaica, New York
on March 16, 1939 to Randolph and the late Celita Larsen Wilhelmsen.
"Chico", as he was known to family and friends, enlisted in the U.S.
Navy on April 24, 1956, where he served until April 23, 1962, when he was
honorably discharged.
His early education was received at Catholic elementary and
secondary schools in Jamaica. While in the Navy he received his GED
Certificate from the U.S. Armed Forces Institute in Madison, Wisconsin.
His education continued and when he was honorably discharged he was
certified as a machinist.
In 1962 "Chico" moved to St. Thomas, V.I. where he joined his parents
who were now residing here. On March 9, 1963, he started working at the
Virgin Islands Water & Power Authority. This led him to pursue studies
through correspondence courses and courses at the College of the Virgin
Islands in Power Plant engineering, electronics and related fields.
During the 20 years he was employed at WAPA "Chico" held several
posts of responsibility Diesel Mechanic, Steam Operator, Shift
Supervisor and Instrument Maintenance Supervisor. He was also involved
in the operation and repair of the desalinization units.
After 20 years he was forced to retire on March 25, 1985 because of ill
health. Even though he was no longer actively employed "Chico"
continued to pursue home study courses. He read widely and his interests
were varied.
His devotion to family was one of his outstanding qualities. He was a
very intelligent person warm, jovial and quiet.
His sudden death on July 13, 1990 from a heart attack while on a trip to
Puerto Rico shocked his family and many friends.
"Chico's" remains were cremated in Puerto Rico and his ashes will be
interred in the Western Cemetery next to his beloved mother, Celita.
