Johnson a case study in caring
Anthony Keith “Tony” Johnson lived an exemplary life, one which should be emulated, Reverend Canon Noel Burke said yesterday.
Delivering the sermon at Johnson’s funeral service at St David’s Anglican Church, Burke said that the former chairman of the Barbados National Productivity Council and former president of the Barbados Economics Society showed how it was possible to be loving and caring despite criticism.
“Tony demonstrated to us how we can be a kind, caring and sharing people. He was one who did not keep knowledge to himself.
“He was a quiet, simple guy who served on the church council; a deep and profound Christian man led by Christian principles,” he said.
Burke said he used to listen to Johnson’s insight on the Budget and the “truth of economic theory” which he always delivered in a “dignified and calm” way. Sadly, Johnson would not be commenting on this year’s Budget as he passed away on August 1. (CA)
