May 29, 1950 - December 13, 2020
Mr. Fitz Arnold Jackson, son of the late Laxley Patrick Jackson and Ceceila Pinnock was born May 29, 1950 in Bartons, St. Catherine, Jamaica. Fitz, affectionately known as Fitzie, attended school in Bartons District, Saint Catherine, Jamaica. On Sunday, December 13, 2020, the Lord said, “Well done, my son. Enter into My joy. It’s time to rest until I return.” In 1978, Fitzie migrated to the United States and settled in Baltimore, Maryland; where he continued his education to obtain a plumbing license while working with Mr. Basil’s and Mr. Berris’ plumbing and electrical companies for many years. In addition to his love for plumbing, Fitzie had a long career at the People’s Ready Inc. (Churchill Distribution) for over 30 years. He delivered some of the finest libations to the Baltimore area. He was known as a jack-of-all-trades, especially when it came to home repairs and plumbing issues. He was always willing to assist anyone in his spare time, but he did more than just work. Fitzie enjoyed sharing stories and spending time with his family and friends over a good meal. During the holiday season, you could always count on Fitzie to be the life of the party with his “back in my day” stories and jokes. Fitzie loved coffee, cigarettes, farming, horse racing and cooking his famous goat head soup with his special touch. He was a man of his word and very outspoken. Fitzie was fun, loving, and a treasure that was truly dedicated to his family and friends. Fitzie leaves to cherish his memory his daughter, Carlene (David), Step-Mother, Muriel Jackson; Brothers: Bertram (Flappy) (June), Ian, Michael, Richard, Neville, Bevis, Norman (Sophia) and Gerel; Milton, Baldwin and George predeceased him; Sisters: Carmen, Novlette (Novey), Necilda (Ver), Irma (Pauline), Bobsie (Winston), Yvonne (George), Mable, Doreen (Kenneth), and Blossom; his best friend, Keith & one surviving aunt, Lettice; one uncle, Gladston; many nieces, nephews, God children and a host of extended family and friends. Our beloved Fitzie, you have lived a full life. It is you that faced it all and stood tall, and most importantly you did it your way. Sleep in peace loved one. We miss you!
