Mannings, Nevis – The man who is being recognized as the pioneer of bus driving on the island of Nevis, received an official ‘horn salute’, on Sunday, March 22, 2020.
On that day, the formal remembrance service for the late Joseph Nathaniel Browne was held at the Mannings Seventh Day Adventist Church.
As his mortal remains were being let down into the grave, the dozens of bus drivers on hand, blew their horns incessantly, in tribute to the former hard-working bus driver, who is noted as ‘the man who blazed the trail for them.’
Included in the tributes, were presentations by the Bus Association, Mannings Community Services, Meredith and Sylvia Hendrickson, Hon. Eric Evelyn and the Gingerland Secondary School.
The eulogy was eloquently delivered by Mr. Charles Bussue (personal friend), in his usual humorous fashion, which at least had the many mourners, smiling for a while.
Pastor Otis Browne, delivered a timely sermon, which challenged those present to think about their personal salvation.
He was ably assisted in officiating the service, by Pastor Delroy Josiah.
The mortal remains of the deceased were interred at the Mannings Seventh Day Adventist Church cemetery.
