He was remembered for his work ethic and productive spirit.

“He was very proud to be a radio practitioner. He was very passionate about radio and music. It was obvious that he thought and planned and prepared. There is no one memory that you can pick out to remember him for. When you know someone for many years, you make a lot of memories. But it was his passion for what he did that I will never forget,” said his colleague Collin Hines, in a previous interview with the Jamaica Observer.
