Obituary for Sprolda V. Hyman
Vinny or Oneson, as he was known by his friends and family, passed away suddenly at the age of 66 on Friday September 25th, 2020 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Brighton Massachusetts.
He was an only child, born to Margaret Morrison Bartley on October 26, 1953 in Portland, Jamaica West Indies. He was raised by his grandparents Constance Morrison and James Brown.
He came to the United States and worked on a farm before moving to Waltham, Massachusetts. He resided and worked in Waltham for the remainder of his life.
Oneson worked as a Sous-chef for many years with Corporate Chefs Inc. in Haverhill MA. He became a Parishioner and worshipped at The First Baptist Church in Waltham. At church he helped serve the community with monthly preparation of meals and feeding the homeless population of Bristol Lodge in Waltham.
Barbequing was an all-time joy of his. He is known by most for his delicious Jamaican Jerk pork and chicken. In addition to cooking he also loved music. His favorite pastime was playing his guitars.
His mother, the last known survivor of his immediate family passed away years ago in the United Kingdom. Oneson is survived by his next of kin Olive Phillips and her husband Frank Phillips, their family, as well as other close friends who gave him support over the years.
Friends and well-wishers are respectfully invited to pay respects and join in a memorial service at the Brasco Memorial Chapel on Moody St, Waltham at a later date.
In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the First Baptist Church, 400 Lexington Street, Waltham, MA 02452.
