THE GODFATHER of Carrington’s Village was laid to rest as a national icon.

Hundreds turned out to pay their final respects to Aubrey Grant. Family, friends, community leaders and members of the sporting fraternities all gave tribute to “Bree” during yesterday’s funeral service at Carrington Wesleyan Holiness Church.

International Olympic Committee member Sir Austin Sealy and his son Richard Sealy, the Minister of Tourism, were among the dignitaries who attended the service conducted by reverends Clayton Springer, Dr John Gamble and Pamela Parris.

Remembered as a generous family and church man who gave his all to his community, Grant, 81, played a pivotal role in the development of at least three sports after coaching the likes of Victor “Gas” Clarke in the great Weymouth Wales and garnering great success in netball as well.
