Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
Born on June 15, 1940 to his mother, Marion Ayo Jenkins; temporarily separated from us on April 18, 2012. Cyril Walton-Macaulay lived a full life over 71 years. He separated from us at the JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey.

Cyril was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone where he lived for 52 years, then re-located to the USA in 1992. Raised by his grand-mother Clarise Zuaiba Macaulay during childhood and youth, he attended the Government Model School, St. Edwards Primary and Secondary Schools.

After his graduation from the 5th Form, he worked for a short while at the Post Office, and made his career as a banker working for the Barclays Bank. He was Branch Manager at several branches of Barclays Bank in Freetown and in the Provinces, culminating his banking career at the post of Senior Manager. Brother Cyril was a member and Master Mason in the Lodge Harmony No. 1446, of the Grand Lodge of Scotland. The High Courts of the Republic of Sierra Leone appointed Cyril Justice of the Peace and a Commissioner of Oaths for the Republic of Sierra Leone

“Beside every great man, there is a great woman”. Cyril became one-flesh with this woman, Nora Morgan in February of 1970. It must have been such good times, for they continued his lineage with the birth of their children, Andrea and Corrie. His wife and children are now his survivors. His lineal descent of survivors includes his grand-children, Corrine, Caelyn Alexander, and Amanda. His cousins, Thelma and Kenneth, both of whom he raised and were his other children, are lineage survivors. He took much pride and great care of his family, now the Almighty God cares for him.

In the USA, he became a Counselor at the Abbot House in New York, working with special needs children until retirement in December of 2005. Within a year he and his wife re-located to North Plainfield, New Jersey, where he again took up counseling part-time. He was ardent in church life and became interested in teaching and learning the word of God professionally. He obtained a certificate of course completion from Liberty University. He also obtained a certificate in Theological Studies from the New Brunswick Theological Seminary, which was sponsored by the Trinity Reformed Church.

Cyril was always pleasant, dedicated, and a man of good-will; he shares in others’ joy and pain; he has cared for, consoled, laughed with, and touched many lives; if only each of us can have a fraction of his love and personality we could all make each other’s lives brighter.

He will be sadly missed, but remember, this is only a time of separation.
