Charlestown –Nevis- A candlelight vigil was held in honour of the late Trevoy TREVY Liburd, who went missing at sea on Wednesday 22nd June and whose body was found on Monday 27th June.
Exactly two weeks later, on the evening of Wednesday 6th July, scores of individuals showed up at the site where his body was found at Black Bay, to participate in a candle-lighting vigil in his honour.
The proceedings, which were ably chaired by Area Representative, Hon. Eric Evelyn, commenced with a special prayer on behalf of the grieving family, by Rev. P. Allister Rawlins.
Thereafter, family members and friends took turns paying special tributes to the late Social Security Board member and ardent Fisherman.
One of the significant presentations of the evening came from TREVY’s dad, former Police Commissioner, Joseph Liburd, who shared some special memories of his very special son.
He also cleared the air about TREVY’s companion on that fateful fishing day, Jonathan Dutil, by stating in no uncertain terms that he believed that Jonathan tried to save TREVY and did no harm to him.
He also asked members of the general public to desist from saying anything different.
As part of the ceremony, a flag, bearing a picture of TREVY, with some of his prized catches was raised in the sand and later some balloons were released.
It is understood that the funeral service will be held on Saturday 23rd July, at the Gingerland Methodist Church.
