They were married a year later on the 8th of December 1962 in a small but intimate ceremony, they would go on to have five children. In England, Edbert supported his family working in customer service for the local bus company. A family man at heart, Edbert relished evenings and weekends with his family interrupted only by the church activities and events. In the fall of 1973, at the urging of his sister, he decided to move to the United States, he also decided to send his children to Jamaica to experience much of what they had heard so much about. In America, Edbert supported his wife and five children while working as a machinist for Polycast technologies. A man of faith, he was very involved in the local community church and would help out by serving as a member of the choir as well as an usher and Deacon. Outside his growing circle of family and friends, his greatest interest was his garden, where he grew Oranges, Strawberries, Onions, Carrots, Tangerines, Cucumbers, Radishes, Potatoes, Lemons and much more along with a variety of herbs. He moved to Tallahassee, Florida where he would spend his retirement years adoring his grandchildren and continue to serve in the church as well as enjoy his garden.
