BARP statement on Sir Harcourt Lewis’ Passing
Sir Harcourt Lewis
1932 – 2015
The Directors, Staff and Members of BARP are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Sir Harcourt Lewis on January 13, 2015 at the age of 83. Sir Harcourt was a true son of the soil in every respect. During his lifetime he served his country at governmental, non-governmental and community levels and was pivotal in the development of Barbados’ financial sector. His selfless devotion to country was publicly acknowledged in the 2010 New Year’s Honours when he was awarded a Knighthood by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
A member of the Barbados Association of Retired Persons soon after its inception, Sir Harcourt was a very dear and committed volunteer of the organization serving as Chairman of the BARP Golden Health Oversight Committee until his passing.
BARP extends condolences to the wife and family of Sir Harcourt. May he rest in peace.
