Amory Phillips laid to rest
People from across Barbados, from sport, business and from the Barbados Lumber Company which he founded, thronged St Lucy’s Parish Church today to pay final respects to late businessman Amory Phillips at his funeral service.
The former Senator died last week after a prolonged illness.
In a packed church, speaker after speaker extolled the virtues of the St Lucy-born Barbadian who eulogist Keith Skimmons said became an expert in lumber.
Simmons traced his late friend’s life from his days as a student at Combermere School where he distinguished himself in cricket. The eulogist said Phillips also threw himself into horseracing “with great enthusiasm”.
