Pierre Fidelia, 84, of West Medford, Mass, passed away on Thursday, April 30th, 2020 at 10:55 a.m.

He was born on November 1, 1935 in Jacmel, Haiti, the son of the late Raymond Nelson and Rosema Jean.

He attended Lise in Jacmel, Haiti and then attended Forces Armee Haiti where he was name Sargent.

In 1964, He married his beloved wife Bernadette (Orel) Fidelia.  To this union, three children were born.  Weegens, the late Emmly and Ketsia Fidelia.

His working career consisted of Polaroid, Mass Eye and Ear and Mass General Hospital and retired from all three.

Pierre was a prideful, loving and God-fearing man.  His journey and foundation of Christ began at First Haitian Baptist Church and then transitioned to New Jerusalem Evangelical Baptist Church.  There he served in various ways and was the Head Deacon of the church, a role that he took very seriously and loved.  He was also part of La Rose de Saron, Reparateur des Breche, Groupe Vermisseau, Groupe Silo and many other prayer groups.  He previously played the role as the church van driver that transported church members to church and church events. He also was a Sunday school teacher and mentor to many of the parishioners.

Pierre loved and took pride in dressing.  Preparing for church was a half a morning task where he took close to 3 hours preparing for the Lord.  He also loved reading his bible, playing dominoes, watching TV, listening to music, watching sports, especially soccer.  He enjoyed reaching out to friends and family, laughing and cracking jokes, share his memories of growing up with his family and friends and help take care of his pride and joy, his grandchildren.

The relationship she had with his grandbabies was like no other. He was adamant to drop and pick them up from school and would have weekly ice cream of DD rendezvous with them.  He taught them how to drive and would always have a little something stashed for them when he saw them.  He also confided in them to purchase things for him that he knows he was not supposed to have and would ask them to refrain from telling his daughter Ketsia because she would scold him for it.  They gladly abided. lol

NJEBC was his second family.  When he was not spending time with his family, he was with his church family.  He was Pappy and Grandpa to many at the church because he saw them blossom from babies to servants of God.

Pierre is survived by his wife, Bernadette Fidelia; their son, Weegens, and his wife, Esther, and their daughter Ketsia, and her husband, Stanley; granddaughters, Bianca, Annie, Ketley and Victoria, and grandson, Isaiah; brothers Gerald, Guy, Jean Marc, Jacques and Reginald; sisters Marie Therese, Jacqueline and Raymonde; many cousins, nieces/nephews and friends (Victor, Tulys, Ultimo, Vernet, Sajouste, Cherubin, Augustin, Lerouge, Michel, Dorisma, Guerrier, Altidor, Thompson, Noel, Jean Pierre, Nelson, Hypolite, Jean, Charles, Cayemite, Loyer, Nicolas, Tangar, Normil, Aurel, Emile, Brevil, Sylvain, Brutus, Kebreau, Polynice, Bernard, Janvier, Enfort, Eloiseau, Pierre and his best friend Avril Lorjeune. Also, to all the members of NJEBC.
