Frederick Edwin David’s Life Story

Frederick Edwin Morris David was born on October 25, 1948, in Hartford City, Grand Bassa County, Republic of Liberia, to the Late Emmanuel Morris and Yohyahma Brooks. He departed this life, on November 22, 2019, at the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in Hamilton NJ.

Frederick was the only child for his mother Yohyahma Brooks, but he was one of ten (10) children to his father Emmanuel Morris.

Frederick graduated from the William VS Tubman High School in Monrovia, Liberia in the year 1969. After that he attended the Monrovia Vocational Training College (MVTC) where he became an Electrician and got his first job at the Monrovia Breweries. He later changed careers and pursued studies in Forestry. He also studied Agriculture at the University of Liberia while still working with the Forestry Development Authority until he retired in 1998.

In the year 2005, Frederick migrated to the United States where he worked for the Nassau Inn in Princeton NJ from 2006 to 2012 and he also worked for Princeton University from 2006 to 2012. He did both jobs simultaneously until he became disabled.

Frederick was initially a staunch opposer of his family’s studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses. He later, however, accepted a Bible Study here in the US, and he remained a Bible student until he passed. He was a very hard working, peaceful and loving father.
