Condolences for Sir Richard Haynes: CTUSAB & British High Commission

The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB) joins with the nation in mourning the passing of the late Sir Richard Haynes.

Sir Richard will be remembered as an outstanding medical practitioner and as a revered Barbadian politician.

As a politician, he articulated a political vision for Barbados and demonstrated a high level of political shrewdness.

With his passing, Barbados has lost an outstanding statesman, whose contribution to national life and development, is beyond question.

To his wife Carol – Lady Jacobs, sons and other family members, CTUSAB extends its condolences at this time of bereavement.

Ch. is named after him. In the 90s, he treated Princess Margaret at Bayview hospital on Beckles Rd.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Sir Richard (‘Richie’) Haynes, who served with such distinction both as a politician, including as Minister of Finance and as leader of the Opposition, and through an equally distinguished parallel career in medicine.

The south coast boardwalk is one of my favourite places in Barbados, offering a wonderful opportunity both for exercise and to enjoy the beautiful coast. It is apt that this boardwalk bears the name of the distinguished Barbadian Sir Richard Haynes.

The staff of the British High Commission join with me as I extend my condolences to his wife Dr. Carol Jacobs, to his family, friends, colleagues and the Government and people of Barbados.
