Nassau, Bahamas - The following is a statement by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Fred Mitchell:
I am truly saddened this morning at the death of
Vernon Curtis, a great civic leader, activist, businessman and community
organizer from Exuma. He will truly be missed.
Mr Curtis was of that
generation of Exuma who fought for independence, majority rule and
Bahamianization. He was Exuma's eminence grise and protector of its
history, it's traditions and it's reputation. He leaves a great legacy.
He was a supporter of the cause and helped to elect and counsel many
an MP. I am grateful for his life of service, for his friendship and for
his wise counsel and total dedication to Exuma and the Bahamas.
he rest in peace.
