Dr Denis Lowe laid to rest
Hundreds of people including family, Christ Church East constituents, Cabinet members and former Members of Parliament (MP) paid their final respects to Dr Denis Lowe who was laid to rest on Saturday at the Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens in Christ Church.
The service began at 10 a.m. with a musical prelude from the Barbados Police Service Band that set the tone for the official homegoing service.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, Deputy Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw, former Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and President of the Democratic Labour Party, Dr Ronnie Yearwood, were among the political figures who attended.
Lowe’s former assistant Gail Ann Luke and retired trade unionist/politician Robert ‘Bobby’ Morris paid virtual tribute to the 64-year-old former Democratic Labour Party Minister of Environment and MP, whom they said was proud to serve and give back to his community.
Luke and several of his supporters who wore blue T-shirts and held placards, described him as “the best Christ Church East MP”.
Lowe, a social scientist, and licensed clinical psychologist came to public office 14 years ago when he won the Christ Church East seat on his second attempt in the 2008 general elections. (TG)
