Obituary

On August 22, 1955, Doreen Onetta Lewis gave birth to her third child, Fredrick (Fred) McDonald Lewis, in the parish of St. George, on the island of Barbados. Fred was the third of four children, and grew up with his grandparents, the late Reginald and Lillian Lewis. His formal education was at St. George’s Boy School. He worked at the prestigious Cave Shepherd Department store in Bridgetown, before immigrating to Cambridge, Massachusetts to join his mother and siblings.

Fred always liked to be involved, and while on the island, ball room dancing and cricket were two of the many activities he enjoyed. He enjoyed ballroom dancing with his soon to be wife, Marvarine Wilson. After immigrating to Cambridge, together with Gerry Wade, he expanded his involvement in the community by forming the Christian Basketball League of Cambridge, where he coached. He was one of the first to help organize the Corey Training Workshop, so that folks could have a fair chance at securing housing. Fred’s years of service to the Cambridge community, led to him being nominated for the Cambridge City Volunteer Award in 2014. His love for the game of cricket, inspired him to become an Empire for a Boston cricket club. NECUA. Fred volunteered at ACT as the office manager from 2012 – 2016, and served two terms on the Governing Board of ACT, from 2012 – 2017; an organization that advocates for Fair, Just and Affordable housing, for lower income residents. He touched the lives of many people in the Cambridge community in a positive way.

Fred worshiped with his family, at St. Paul’s AME Church in Cambridge, for many years. He sang in the New Temple Singers, and Chancel Choir; Served as an usher, and also served as a Trustee member. Fred later joined the saints here at New Faith Missionary Baptist Church, where he worshiped and served faithfully until his death.

Somewhat like his mother, whom friends deemed a “fashionista”, Fred was a fashion conscious fella. He loved to “step out” to make a statement. He presented himself for church on Sunday mornings “as they say in Barbados , dressed to death”. Fred’s worked history included Macy’s store, Cambridge Hospital, and Cambridge Ridge and Latin school. Before retiring because of failing health, he worked at Longwood Security for Children’s Hospital.

Fred lived a full life, and was always willing to get involved and serve. He will be missed by his family and friends. Fred leaves to celebrate his life, Children – Joel Bryant (Bdos), Donna and Diane Lewis; Grandchildren - Jeremy, Christopher and Aubany; Brothers - Clyde and Carl Lewis; Sister – Shirley Lewis; Step father - Winsbert Grant; Aunt - Ivy Lewis (Golding), Uncle - Seon Lewis, and many Cousins in London, UK; Also many Nieces, Nephews and Friends in the Cambridge/Boston areas.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. AMEN
