LUCEA, Hanover - Monsell Clarke, a stalwart of the Lucea community and former worker at the Hanover Parish Council, now Hanover Municipal Corporation, died on March 29 at age 88 years.

His daughter, Tausha Clarke, told the Jamaica Observer West that her father was “very humble, nothing worried him. He was a devout church man and family man”.

Clarke was born in the district of Hopewell and attended Friendship All-Age School. He joined the Hanover Parish Council in 1958 and served in different capacities before leaving in 1985.

A respected figure in Lucea, especially church circles, Clarke was a founder and long-serving member of the Christian Fellowship Church, one of the town's landmarks.

In December, he and his wife, Dulcie, celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary.

Clarke is survived by his wife, 10 children, 10 grandchildren, one sister, nieces and nephews.

The funeral service for Clarke takes place on Saturday at the Jockey Factory in Lucea, starting at 11:00 am.

Interment will be at Lucea Cemetery.
