Methodist lay preacher Edward Williams is dead.
Williams, 51, collapsed and died from an apparent heart attack on Saturday afternoon while visiting in-laws in Montrose, Christ Church, his brother Antoine Williams said.
His sudden death came fewer than 24 hours after he had participated in a service at the Dalkeith Methodist Church, where he told Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and staff of the Barbados Light & Power Company Limited they were welcome to worship at any time.
The service was held to mark the 100th anniversary of the BL&P and of the church’s use of electricity.
The Dalkeith Methodist Church was the first place of worship on the island to have electricity.
Williams, who is survived by wife Janice and children Nicollette and Tiffani, was to have started a new job today, his brother reported.
Williams was a youth director in the Methodist Church, but also worked with youth groups from other religious denominations. He served with the Jaycees and was a Kensington Oval Management Incorporated volunteer.
