David Hooper laid to rest
DAVID THEOPHILUS HOOPER could fix everything.
He never told people “no” and was kindhearted, sincere, witty and trusting.
Such were the attributes highlighted during the funeral of the late restaurateur and band manager at James Street Methodist Church in Bridgetown today.
Hooper passed away on May 13 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), where he was being treated for a stroke.
A large representation from the entertainment fraternity joined family and friends in celebrating Hooper’s life. The entertainers offered a musical tribute to Hooper, which preceded the service.
This was complemented by solos from Terencia TC Coward and Adrian Clarke, who were both lead singers with the band Coalishun which Hooper managed, during the service. Other lead singers Rupert Clarke and Njeri, who did part of the tribute, were also in attendance as well as several of the musicians.
