Harry Rambaransingh, age 79, of Lake Worth, Florida passed away on September 9, 2021. Harry was born in Penal, Trinidad on May 25, 1942. He is survived by his loving wife, Ruth Rambaransingh; his eldest son, Walt Rambaransingh; second born son, Brent Rambaransingh; brother, Narine "Lloyd" Rambaransingh, his wife, Blanca and their family; brother, Kris Rambaransingh, his wife Seeta and their family.
Harry’s journey through life was exceptional. He grew up in abject poverty and used that as the fire to achieve many accomplishments throughout his life. He focused on his education and became a teacher at the primary and secondary school levels in the first of his multi-professional careers. While he was a teacher at the secondary school level, he opened a very successful industrial welding iron-works business. With the help of his family, he built 2 houses in Trinidad, doing everything from plumbing to concrete installation to the architecture plans.
He married his amazing wife Ruth in December 1974. He was a loving patriarch and always supported his family. He was also an avid cricketer and retired as captain of his village team a short time after his kids were born. In January of 1990, he and Ruth decided to make a bold move to Florida to ensure that his sons had better educational opportunities, even though he could have stayed in Trinidad and lived a comfortable life. He was never content with what he had, he always wanted to continue improving himself. The transition to Florida was difficult but he knew that he could not evolve himself and his family without sacrifice.
In 1992, he settled his family in Lake Worth, Florida in an amazingly supportive neighborhood with equally wonderful neighbors. He worked many jobs in the retail sector and spent the majority of that tenure at Home Depot where he was successful for decades. He also studied to be a phlebotomist and ultrasound technician. He was a notary public and also had his real estate license.
Harry’s most extraordinary trait was that he was a loving and supportive friend. He loved gardening and provided most of what he grew to his friends. From mangoes, peppers, avocadoes, plums and other Caribbean favorites, there was no fruit or vegetable that he could not grow successfully. He was also a magnificent chef.
Harry was ardent musician. He learnt how to play the piano/organ, Hawaiian guitar and harmonica. He was a pillar of the expat Caribbean community in South Florida.
While his passing has left a void in all of his friends and family, we know that he lived a full life and always made his family and friends better people. He always said that he knows that there will be grief when he passes but wanted us to celebrate his life in every possible way. We love you. We’ll miss you and your life will continue to be an inspiration to many.
