Hugh Edison Minnis, Sr., 44

May 03, 2012

THE LIFE & TIMES OF
SGT. 2161 HUGH EDISON MINNIS, SR.

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."
Ecclesiastes 3:1

It is said every life has its own pathway and Journey to follow and thus was the life of Hugh Edison Minnis. Affectionately called "Edison or Minnis".

A Time to Be Born
On March 31st, 1968 a bouncing, bright eyed baby boy was born to the parentage of William Minnis and Ethral Higgs both deceased.  He was given the names Hugh Edison, which means "Bright in Mind and Spirit" and was the second of two sons born to this couple.  As he grew he lived up to his name, playing and pulling tricks on his friends and siblings which led them to say he was mischievous. Being an energetic and enthusiastic child he was often inquisitive, always asking questions and wanting to know "who and what was happening". He also liked acquiring the latest gadgets and toys so he could play with and dismantle them to see how they worked.  We just had to mention that he was a mama's boy! He was her baby boy and would tattle on all the other children to "Mammy" as he affectionately called her. Even though his siblings would be mad, he didn't care he received hugs and treats from Mammy for being the watchman. His childhood was an adventurous and happy one.
A Time For Education and Career
He was educated through the government school system, where he attended the Claridge Primary School, C. I. Gibson Jr. and then moved onto the R. M. Bailey High School, where he excelled in track and field and received other academic accolades.  Edison was an industrious young man and found early employment at the Lyford Cay Club where he served as a Waiter for a number of years.  He then moved to Super Value Ltd, where he was employed as the Produce Manager until he was called by the Royal Bahamas Police Force in 1991, and was a part of the B and C Squad 1991-1992.  As an upright Officer he worked tirelessly and respectfully in a career that he held very dear for twenty-one years.  Even after being diagnosed with his illness, he never shirked his duties because he knew what he was working towards.  Being recently promoted to the rank of Sargent, he was very proud and appreciative, and felt that his labor was not in vain.

A Time For Family Life
Edison loved people and loved life.  In the year 1991 Inez Minnis (nee Nottage) caught his eye.  They dated for many years before jumping the broom in 1994 and making a commitment to love and cherish until death did they part.
Time For Challenges
Edison became ill and was diagnosed with kidney failure. He bravely fought and ran his race, and on Monday 23rd, April 2012 he passed away and was called home in the late evening hours.
He called his sister just a few days before and said "Nicky this place is like heaven, you'll should come and see, my body feels so good and it's so peaceful here." His pain is no more and he is resting. "To God Be The Glory."
Left to celebrate his life and hold cherished memories are his loving and dedicated Wife: Inez Minnis; (1) Son: Edison Minnis Jr.; (3) Daughters: Azaria & Sanaa Minnis and Tanisha Newbold; (2) Grandchildren: Anija Minnis and Theodore Roberts Jr.; (4) Brothers: Chadwick Kemp, Sargent 1661 William Minnis, Roscoe and Ronald Minnis of Fort Pierce Fla.; (7) Sisters: Donna Dean of Fort Pierce Fla., Valerie Barr, KevaMae  Kemp, Andreanette, Jennifer & Sheryl Gaitor & Eleanor Smith; Step Mother: Montrella Minnis of Fort Pierce Fla.; (11) Sisters-in-law: Shirley Kemp, Stacey Minnis, Millestine Smith, Norine Moxey, Ruth, Murriel, Prudence, Christine, Aneka, Vanessa and Winifred Nottage; (9) Brothers-in-law: Herbert Barr, Benjamin Newbold, Anthony, Donnie, Dave, Fenrick & Jemerson Nottage, Rexville Smith and Prince Moxey; Aunts and Uncles: Othman and Carl Higgs of Rochester New York and family, Simeon Rolle of Fort Pierce Fla., Zilla Higgs of Rochester New York, Lighty Adderley, Gloria & Uriah Sturrup, Melrose Burrows, Prolene Smith and Family, Patsy, Mary Conchita, Jenkin, Ezekiel & Eugene Nottage and their Families; Numerous Nieces and Nephews including: Doris Munroe & Sequetor Hooper of Fort Pierce Fla., Ricardo and Roseann Christie, Kevin and Raquel Edgecombe, Herbert Jr. and Jasmine Barr,  P/C 3042 Ovando and Krystal Kemp, P/C Lavardo and Charmaine Kemp, Tomiko, Terry, Precious and Dylan Kemp, R/C 3663 Ferrice Kemp, Pedrica, Pedra, Pedro Jr., Kareem, Shakoby, Roscoe, Janell and Jeremiah Minnis, Valerie Barr, Lorenzo Darling, Kennedy Reid, Clint and Lakeisha Lockhart, Janice and Travis Forbes, Alexis Gibson, Ashley Knowles, Kaeley Rolle, Shelton Miller, Tamal Curry, Ebony Gerenus, Rex Smith Jr., Aledeon Miller, Jada and Prince Moxey Jr., Shantique Coakley, Ramon, Davia, Danekam Aliyah, Zaia, Shadae, Tyrek, Fenrick Jr., Matthew, Fenron, Antoinette, Tyran, Lena and Anthony Nottage & Justin Spence; A host of other Relatives and Friends: Joyce Roberts & family, Harrison Wilson & family, Roy Smith, Cardinal & Mella Rolle & family, Dwayne Harris & family, Audley & Marjorie Rahming & family, Drs.
