Roosevelt King’s life celebrated
THE LATE SECRETARY general of the Barbados Association of Non-Governmental Organisations Roosevelt King has been given a tribute fit for a king.
In a memorial service to commemorate his life at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed this morning, “Tye”, as he was known, was hailed a man whose main aim was “to help the poor people”.
Describing him as epic and always willing to help others, former president of the Barbados Youth Development Council Jason Francis said if the youngsters of today had more Kings, the world would be better off.
The service included a blessing from the Sons of God Apostolic Spiritual Baptist Church and performances by the Pinelands Creative Workshop, Dancin’ Africa and others. (RA)
