Luesette and Pete Howell

Our dear friend George was well-known and well-respected throughout the Caribbean region and beyond for his insights, his teachings, and his willingness to listen to the views of others. There was a lot we knew about the manner of man in his professional capacity with the ILO and as a Labour Leader in general, but many did not know just how well-rounded George was, both in and outside a formal office setting. As he was a former athlete and Olympian, it is ironic that his own earthly torch went out during the 2020 Olympics going on this July 2021. Surely, George’s torch must be glowing again as he receives his heavenly gold medal for his
phenomenal life. May his family and friends keep strong and keep the faith.
