HINDS, Oswald George
With heavy hearts, the family of Oswald “Ossie” Hinds announces his passing, which occurred on June 16th, 2016, at the Grey Nuns Hospital. Ossie was born in Jamaica on June 14th, 1948; a son of the late Bethelda Williams, the loving husband of Joy (Grant) Hinds.
Ossie spent his formative years in Portland, Jamaica and immigrated to Edmonton with his family in 1976. He was a pipefitter for many years and a very proud member of Local 488 United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters.
Left to mourn are his wife Joy, daughters Charlotte and Suzanne, grandchildren Jesse and Joshua, cousin Hugh Burgess, sisters Norma and Doreen, and brother Lucius.
A viewing will be held at The Berean Church of God International – 13020 114st, Edmonton on July 2nd at 11 am, followed by a celebration of Ossie’s life beginning at 12pm. A reception at Athlone Community League – 13010 129st, Edmonton will be held immediately afterwards. For those who wish, remembrances to the Cross Cancer Institute would be appreciated by the family.
