LEROY WORRELL, a well-respected member of the Greenfield, St Michael community, perished in last night’s fire which damaged three homes.

One neighbour, said Worrell, 71, was “like a grandfather” to him and was known as “Roy”.

The fire is believed to have started at his home just after 9 p.m., according to another neighbour.

Ashley Goodridge, a relative of the deceased, expressed her feeling on The Nation Barbados’ Facebook page after the tragedy.

“R.I.P Uncle Roy we will miss you and you will never be forgotten was such a very kind hearted n generous person…..I Love You,” she wrote.

Worrell has one daughter, who is in her 40s.

One house was completely destroyed in the blaze and two others were damaged. Three fire tenders responded. (BN)
