43 Years young, 1967 to 2008, Lodge’s finest – Terry Mayers: Sports Journalist, Calypsonian, Weather Researcher, Husband & Father

Today, ex-Broadcaster and Hubby/Dad Terry Mayers – RIP, would have been 43… Here are some other highlights I forgot – like me, Terry Mayers is very Bajan but not from here – he was born in Montreal (I is a Trini, but naturalised Bajan via Father); Terry meets Sally Spectra from Bold & Beautiful soap opera during a telethon CBC had, when Bold & Beautiful came to Barbados and filmed episodes; Terry dancing  to chase away the urge to pee when he wanted to go to the bathroom just before he recorded a phone report to use for Sports News right after I read the World At One and me teasing him by whistling – he cuss me like a pirate, LOL; Giving Terry a ride home when he sold the old Suzuki to get a new car, but he kept it red and stayed with the same license plate G 1776 – oh, I can go on and on…

Mr Terry Mayers was one of the first journalists I encountered at the start as a Junior track and field athlete at home in Barbados. his smile was amazing. He had a such charisma. When I heard about his passing while here at school in Texas, I was saddened, shocked and very sorry for his family? and for us all However, his body may be gone but his soul lasts forever. Rest In Peace Mr Mayers. You have done well!

{With wife Jacelle & their beautiful young son, TJ} "Thanks to you Terry you touched the lives of thousands of Barbadians, you will be missed and never forgotten...whatever you did you did with this spirit that made? one want to smile, thank you for that,a talent only few possess; My prayers with his family and friends"
