Memories of Sir Warwick recalled

Social Share

The many facets of the life of former Cabinet minister Sir Warwick Franklin were captured in tributes paid by relatives, friends and political associates yesterday at his funeral service at the St Philip Parish Church.

The former teacher, public servant, parliamentarian and land surveyor who went on to form his own land surveying business, was eulogised by his cousin, attorney at law Hal Gollop, as a man who never wavered from the task he set himself of contributing to the development of Barbados.

With Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley and members of her Cabinet, as well as former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and several members of the last Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Cabinet in attendance, Gollop said: “In assessing his achievement as a politician, one might say that Warwick met with both triumph and disaster but was able to treat those two impostors just the same, and certainly grew to become a man.”(GC)
