Birth of a Great Man of God
Luc Joseph was born on May 6, 1940 to Eva Rimpel and Gustave Joseph in Mirebalais, Haiti. His parents introduced him to God and the church, and he continued to study the bible, grow in the word of the Lord, and prosper in the richness of his religion. He was raised to be a strong-willed, highly respectful, and true Man of God.
Although never formally introduced, he laid eyes on the love of his life in Mirebalais. Once Luc completed his educational studies, he moved to Nyack, New York, to be close to his brother, Leon Joseph. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Boston, because he heard news that his Forever Love, Eliane, was living there. Within a few months, with Eliane’s prompting, he wrote a beautiful letter to her father professing his love, and asked for her hand in marriage. Her father said yes; and a few months later, Luc and Eliane were wed, and settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts. As their family grew, the couple found their final home in Randolph, Massachusetts.
Supporting and Leading
Luc was known to everyone as a strong leader and provider, and found careers that kept him in the driver’s seat. He obtained his Commercial Driving License, and traveled throughout the United States. However, once he became a father, he understood the value of constancy, and started working for the Boston Public School transportation system, where he would retire over three decades later.
He started an entrepreneurial career with Quickstar, where he was nicknamed, “The Doctor” because he helped a lot of people. He would often provide vitamins to friends using the honor system, knowing they would recompense him for those products soon enough. He truly believed in the intrinsic goodness and integrity of people.
A Believer, A Father, A Friend, A Confidant
Luc was admired by friends and family alike. He was often mistaken for a minister, due to his strong admiration for the Lord, and his power of speech. He never let go of his love for God. He began each day reading the Bible, and would pray several times throughout the day; then lead one more prayer with Eliane before laying his head on his pillow at night. His favorite, most cherished Bible verse was Psalm 46. He believed this verse helped to protect him, his family, and his friends. It provided him with comfort and healing.
Luc and his wife were members of the First Haitian Baptist Church of Boston for many years, and recently became members of Christian Faith Baptist Church, where they continued to study the word of their Savior. He raised his children in the church, and instilled faith and belief in all of them.
He loved and adored his children, and raised them to have great pride in who they were; great pride in who they were striving to become, and great pride in their love for God.
There was no greater joy then seeing Luc with his grandchildren, and he looked upon them as if they were his greatest accomplishments. He stated that his deepest desire was for all his family to know God, serve Him, and accept Him as their personal savior. That was to be his legacy.
To his friends, he was a confidant; a mentor who often offered advice, and fresh perspective; at times providing the ultimate direction they needed to take. Luc indeed cherished each and every friendship, and was a highly respected advisor to those who knew him well.
If you truly knew Luc, you knew how much he loved gardening. He was excited when his small garden produced delicious vegetables, or when his fruit trees blossomed with delicious fruits. He loved physical activity and exercise, spending time at the gym, and working out almost daily. He was strong, dedicated, and beyond focused. He loved discourse, and was filled with information and knowledge to share. He built strong connections, and sustained loyalty through communication and positive conviction.
Gone Physically Forever. Held Emotionally and Mentally
Luc began his journey Home on March 23, 2022. His memory will be cherished. His teachings will continue with his children, and their children; and his love for life will be deeply held.
To continue celebrating his wonderful life; he leaves his wife, Eliane; his children, Joseph, Cyrus, and his wife, Ebony, Tamare, Jerry, and Luckenson and his wife, Diseanna; his grandchildren, Raphaiah, Alonnah, Essence, Raya, Grayson, and Niomi; his elder brother, Leon; sisters, Gerda and Joslin Bernadin; nieces Lisa and Terri; nephews, Tony, and Danny; brother-in laws, Andre Doirin, and his wife Hansy, Yves Vilarson, and his wife, Gidette, and Yvon Vilarson, and his wife, Clermonde; and a wealth of family members and close friends.
