George A. Lake Dies at 87

George A. Lake

The family of George A. Lake is sad to announce his passing on May 4, 2021.

He was born January 12, 1934, in Anguilla, British West Indies. In the 1950s, George selected St. Thomas as his permanent residence. During the years, many fellow islanders loved George for his honesty, integrity and commendable character. He was exactly who he said he was: never any surprises. He was a humble, peacekeeping, devout Adventist Christian who loved the Lord.

He is survived by his wife, Berenice Chalwell Lake of 57 years of marriage; daughters: Linlie Lake Ramsey (Paul A. Ramsey), Suzette Lake Clay (Michael Clay) and Dr. Ingrid Lake Myers (Jay Myers); son, George Michael Lake (Glenda L. Lake Esq.); sister, Druphemia Webster; nine grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; 12 nieces; eight nephews; 29 great-nieces; 26 great-nephews; 12 great-great-nieces; and 11 great-great-nephews.

George was an amazing husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend who was loved so deeply by all who encountered him.
