SIR DENYS Ambrose Williams, former Chief Justice of Barbados, has died.  The 84-year-old jurist who also acted as Governor General between December 1995 and June 1996 died at his home in Rockley, Christ Church today.  At 37, Sir Denys was the youngest judge in the Commonwealth and went on to become one of the longest serving judges in the Commonwealth upon his retirement in 2001.  An island scholar, he studied at Combermere School and Harrison College and went on to study law at Oxford University and was admitted to the English Bar at the Middle Temple.
