Raymond Augustus was born into a family of visionaries , sports personalities and community workers. He was raised in the Frizwell’s Hill area of Pembroke Bermuda and very early in life became involved in the community. He was involved with the Devonshire Recreation Club and had a passion for gardening at his home on Frizwells’Lane. Raymond was definitely a lover of our cultural heritage and the Gombeys were top on his list and why not he was surrounded by various troops in his area. In his early adult hood Raymond worked as a waiter at the Hamilton Princess Hotel for several years like a family tradition the family that prays together stays together his brothers Derrick, Calvin, David Jr. and Gary joined the ranks in the same hotel starting out as waiters. However Raymond was ambitious  and worked his way up to Captaincy and then moved  to the Colony Pub. On his move from hotel work he joined his father David Augustus 2nd well known as’Chippo’ and who himself was an icon in the football sports arena  in the Community. As a family they established owned and operated the Augustus Funeral Home. He was not averse  to sharing his time and talents and served as a member of Pembroke Parish Council for many years.

Gone to soon    

He was a fun-loving and giving person and Bermuda lost a very special   son of the soil at his passing. As the saying goes ‘gone to soon”‘.
