Omard Bradley Matthew

Omard B. Matthew passed away on Monday February 24, 2020 in Sentara Leigh Memorial Hospital Norfolk, Virginia. Omard Bradley Matthew better known as Omar was born on the Island of Antigua and Barbuda to Phillip and Ophilia Matthew. He was the last of 12 children. Omard attended the Grace hill Primary School. He was a very good cricketer when he was in school. His favorite color was Red. Math and English were his two favorite subjects. Upon graduating Omard got into doing construction. Omard did construction for over 40 years. In 1963 he migrated to St. Thomas Virgin Islands. Omard was a man of time. Never late always early. He enjoyed reading, writing, going to the beach, and walking his dog. Omard never wore the same color shoes. They were always mix matched. He said one day people will different color shoes, and he was right! In 2016 he moved to Virginia to live with his wife and seek medical help. On February 24, 2020 the good Lord called him home.
