Sir Denys laid to rest
FORMER CHIEF JUSTICE Sir Denys Williams was laid to rest today.
Said to have been the longest serving judicial officer in the British Commonwealth at the time of his retirement in 2001, Sir Denys was described by his son Shawn as “the consummate judicial academic”.
Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart attended the funeral service in the chapel at Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens.
Canon Ivan Harewood conducted the brief and dignified service with the assistance of Dean of St Michael’s Cathedral Dr Frank Marshall.
Though not packed, the sanctuary reflected the range of associations of the former Chief Scout of Barbados who died at his home last week at age 83. (GC)
