Astor and Linda Ebanks

    Astor “Daddy” and Linda “Mama” shared a very special bond, both the 5th born in their families and born in the same year, they fell madly in love at the tender age of 19. After Mama refusing two proposals and Daddy finally receiving approval to marry his “Linda darling”, they made it official and wed on September 23rd 1953. This was a match made in Heaven.

    Daddy and Mama planted their roots in Crewe Road, George Town, where many of their amazing and unforgettable memories were made.

    They spent their blissful and blessed 58 years of marriage living life to the fullest with only one silly squabble. When they weren’t working hard, they spent their time doing things that they absolutely loved - from drives around the island to flights around the world. From making sure the family was always fed to baking their famous fruit cakes for all who enjoyed them near and far. Both loved cooking and loved their Lord and Savior even more.

    They had 5 wonderful, rambunctious children: William, Christine, Virgil, Seneca and Darrell, who to this day, continues to carry on many of their parents’ favorite hobbies. They are deeply loved and missed by all of their grandkids, who affectionately call them “Nana” and “Papa”.

    Daddy went home to Heaven on February 3rd 2012 and Mama missed him so much, that she decided to join him and rest peacefully with him that very same year on December 26th 2012. We are sure they are touching as many hearts in Heaven as they did here on earth.

    May their precious souls forever rest in peace and light perpetual shine upon us.
