Paul F Constantine, 87, of Boca Raton, FL, passed away February 17, 2019.
Paul Francisco Constantine was born on April 3rd 1931 to Julio and Millie Marie Constantine of Morne Coco Road Maraval, Trinidad West Indies. Paul was the youngest of three children. His brother, Charles, Constantine, and his sister, Margaret Mendez, preceded him in death. Paul grew up working on a small farm with his parents in a community called Paramin Hills. Life was quit tough in those days; however, the experience helped him to learn that hard work is not a disgrace but a necessity for a successful life in the future.
Paul continued his education and became a school teacher for a short time. Since teaching was not his first choice, he pursued his original dream and became an architectural designer. He began his career in Trinidad and Tobago; there he worked with Trinidad and Tobago Electrical Company. He then migrated to the United States of America where he worked with the American Electrical Power Company in the states of New York and Ohio.
Paul and Minnie entered into holy matrimony on April 9th 1961. They lived lovingly together for 57 years. Paul loved his wife very much; whatever made her happy made him happy.
On May 14th 1988 Paul accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savor from sin, and demonstrated his decision by baptism at the Worthington Seventh Day Adventist Church Columbus Ohio. After his retirement, he relocated to Florida. There he became a member of the Deerfield Beach Seventh Day Adventist Church and served in many departments of the church. For example, he served as a Deacon, Local Elder, and worked along with Elder King spreading the good news of salvation in the community. His favorite bible verse comes from the Gospel of St. John Chapter 14 verses 1-3: 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Paul will be lovingly remembered by his dear wife, Minnie, his daughter, Ingrid Meah, his granddaughter, Samantha Belfon, stepson, Errol Richard Daniel, nieces: Ingrid Constantine, Charlene Mendez, Anne Constantine and nephews: Allan Constantine, Richard Mendez, Kimmy Mendez, Trevor Constantine and many other relatives and friends.
Paul lived in the Lord, he died in the Lord and may his soul rest in peace.
