In Memory of Joseph Serge-Bien-Aimé
Matthew 5:1-12a: “Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”
Joseph Serge-Bien-Aimé passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 30, 2021 in Bridgeport, CT. He was cared for with compassion and love by his devoted daughter Claire Bien-Aimé and her family.
Joseph Serge Bien-Aimé was a loving, devoted father of three children: Mario Bien-Aimé, Sophia Edwards, and Claire Bien-Aimé. He leaves behind three siblings: Begel Bien-Aimé, Eliane Bien-Aimé, and Edith Bien-AImé. Joseph and Elide were well known for their charity towards others and for community outreach work in Haiti. The couple shares a daughter Claire together.
Born to Elias Bien-Aimé, carpenter, and Claire Azor in Jeremy, Haiti on November 25, 1939, Joseph moved to Port-au-Prince at the age of thirteen and became the head of his family at age sixteen.
Joseph began his career as a driver. This experience prompted him to study auto mechanics and repair for a number of years. Joseph continued in this field and went on to earn an Automotive Service Technician and Mechanic Degree.
Shortly thereafter, he began working for the Hertz Company. Joseph began as a mechanic and rose to the rank of Head of Operations at the Port-au-Prince Hertz Company location. His business relationship with the company continued for twenty-five years.
In 2007 Joseph Serge-Bien Aimé was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Several years later he also bravely battled lung and blood cancer. Joseph faced adversity with patience, endurance and courage.
Joseph’s stance in the face of insurmountable challenges was his willingness to embrace the life God gave him with faith and hope. He will always remain a source of inspiration to his family and friends. His legacy is his love and his reward is His heavenly home.
The family would like to sincerely express their gratitude and appreciation for your kindness and compassion during this very difficult time.
