Bishop David Wisdom passed away at the age of 90 in Savannah, Georgia, on February 19, 2023. David Wisdom, BTh, MBS, was the third child of Caleb and Rebecca Wisdom and was born on April 17, 1932, in Muirhouse Buxton in the parish of St. Ann, Jamaica. He lived in Jamaica, Grand Cayman, New York, and New Jersey, and spent his final years in Jesup, Georgia.
Bishop Wisdom was an ordained minister in the New Testament Church of God and served the New Testament Church in various offices throughout his life. He was an accomplished musician and played a variety of musical instruments. He was, however, most proficient at the organ. This instrument gave him much delight as the melodious strains rang out at home, in rallies, concerts, church services, funerals, and weddings under the magical touch of his nimble fingers.
Bishop Wisdom was a renowned building contractor and was known for his work with stone as well as the high-standard finish which characterized his completed projects. He taught many young men building skills and was known by many as a generous person. He left his mark in Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the United States, mainly in New Jersey and Georgia.
Bishop Wisdom met and married Annetta Fraser in 1955, and the union produced eleven children, two of whom pre-deceased him. The nine remaining children continue to make significant contributions in the US, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as Vice Presidents, HR Manager, IT Specialist, Music Teachers, Nurses, Permanent Secretary, Fashion Designer, Interior Decorator and Entrepreneur.
Bishop Wisdom married Amanda Wisdom 25 years ago in New Jersey where they originally resided. They moved to Jesup 21 years ago where they both made their mark on the community and their church.
