Alfred Lewis Beasley, was lovingly called “Strawberry”, because of the many freckles covering his face. He was the oldest of four children, born to Frances Caroline Wiesman on February 8, 1953. Alfred was raised by his maternal grandmother, Lena Beasley until Frances, later met and married John A. Harris, gaining two sisters, Amani (Jonita), Shareen and younger brother Shawn. His grandmother, Lena had a lasting influence throughout his life.

Alfred attended Boston Trade High School where his love for cars took root. As a teenager, he spent most of his time at the neighborhood gas station, located at the corner of Warren Street and Gaston Street. He was fascinated watching auto mechanics working on various cars. His love of cars grew as he soon began repairing and restoring cars during his spare time. Restoring vintage cars being Alfred’s true love.

While growing up in Roxbury and Dorchester, Alfred had several male role models like his uncles; Clinton, Clifton, Leon, and Randy Beasley. Alfred enjoyed being with his uncles and with an abundance of neighborhood buddies such as best friend, Tony Gonsalves, who Alfred would proudly refer to as, “my homies”. ‘Hanging out’ however, with his uncles was when Alfred learned and developed his street smarts at an early age. When he grew older, he felt the need to leave Boston and become more disciplined with his life. This led him to seek out his father in California in, 1989. “We had a good relationship”, Alfred described years later. He never forgotten the opportunity to meet and establish a relationship with his biological father, (who Alfred called “House”, and his father called him, “little House”), before his father passed.

Living in Downey, CA, Alfred worked for the Hospital Corporation of America, where one of the doctors noticed Alfred’s good work ethics and determination, offered to mentor him. Soon after, Alfred Beasley became a licensed Phlebotomist. He worked as a Phlebotomist for 15 years, until he was injured on the job and became disabled.

Alfred relocated to Chandler, AZ where he was able to purchase a Condo and several vintage cars, which he worked on to restore during his spare time. Although Alfred lived comfortably in Arizona for sixteen years, he was happy to return home to Boston before he left this earth. He died among family peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday evening, September 10th. Rest in Peace Our Dear Brother.

Preceding Alfred in death are his Step-Father, John A. Harris, Mother Frances C. (Wiesman) Harris, Father, ‘House’, and his son Alfred Beasley, Jr.

Alfred leaves to mourn his siblings Amani (Khalfani) Senghor, Shareen (Kenneth) Simms and Shawn Harris. Children: Jamaal, Jonathan and Jamie. Grand-daughter(s) Jamara Gibbons and Rain Qualls. Nephews and Nieces: Kamau, Ajamu (Shante), Sekani Senghor, Kenya, Kenneth, “Kavon” Sharaya,Deadra Simms, Isabella, Kerrick and Christian Harris. A host of relatives and many friends.
