Obituary

Jean Nestor Saint-Loth was born on March `15th, 1927 to Jean Salomon Saint-Loth and Marie Adelcia Esther. Born and raised in arrondissement Bainet in Haiti he would live-out the American dream. Jean was born into poverty and he did not attend school until his teens in Haiti. He moved to Port-au-Prince at age 16 with his sister to later on pursue an apprenticeship with a master tailor. He quickly became a master tailor himself and at the age of 36, he met his future wife Yolande Joseph through his cousin. A year later he married Yolande in 1964 and they had 2 children, Dominique Saint-Loth and James Saint-Loth.

After a long struggle with trying to support his family financially and sending letters to many American organizations and individuals, including President John F. Kennedy, he learned of a program via the American Embassy that was allowing tradesmen to enter America. Jean quickly wrote a letter to the embassy inquiring about the program and was chosen to go to America, in 1967 Jean (known as Boss Nestor to family and friends) left his family behind in Haiti temporarily to obtain financial stability and help support his growing family.

Jean Nestor moved to Manhattan NY where he lived with fellow tradesmen and friends and worked for Robert Hall Clothiers. He worked extremely hard for 2 years and saved up enough money to have his wife Yolande and his two sons brought to America in 1969. The family then moved to an apartment in Crown Heights Brooklyn NY on eastern parkway. Jean continued to work as a garment district worker while Yolande raised the kids.

Jean and Yolanda went on to have 3 more children David Saint-Loth, Nestor Jr Saint-Loth *deceased, and Danielle Saint-Loth (married name: Gilbert). Due to a fire, the family had to move to East New York and then to the Vanderveer projects, from there Jean and Yolande moved a year later into a family friend’s home and rented out the basement where they welcomed their 6th child Rachelle Nancy. Yolande started working for home attendant agencies to help save money. With hard work and dedication to his craft, Jean was able to purchase a dry-cleaning business which he called Nancy’s cleaner’s located in East Flatbush Brooklyn. Jean and Yolande worked hard to become home owners, they purchased their first home in Brooklyn New York and welcomed Peter Scotty and Sarah Gabriel in that home, where they raised all eight of their children for 26 years.

Jean’s children have continued his American dream in States throughout the US. Some have had children of their own, making Jean a grand-father to 7. Jean and Yolande retired to Deerfield Beach Florida where they purchased a home and resided there for 16 years. In his spare time Jean loved to fish at the Deerfield Beach pier, watch baseball and talk politics. Jean was a gardener who was very proud of his Florida mango tree. He was born a Catholic and eventually was baptized to the christian faith late in life

I remember my dad talking to me about work ethic. He would always tell me to never put off doing something that you can do today. He would always have a word of encouragement or his word of choice: force. He would say you need to keep your force up to do what you have to do. I will cherish all my memories of him and miss him dearly.

When I was in college my dad would Always ask me if I was ok and if I needed any money. I would usually tell him no, but a week later I would get a check in the mail from him with handwritten notes saying "This is between me and you, don’t tell your your mother". He always had my back always. I miss him so much ❤️
