R Danny Williams has died
KINGSTON, Jamaica- Jamaican business mogul and former Cabinet minister R Danny Williams has died.
Williams, who founded Life of Jamaica, was ailing for some time.
Former Prime Minister PJ Patterson paid tribute to Williams a short while ago, saying Jamaica is poorer for his passing.
“He ranks within the highest echelons of committed Leaders who have contributed beyond measure to the growth and esteem of our island,” Patterson said.
“He was a towering giant in the fields of business, education, institution building and deserving charitable causes. I have lost a precious friend and an invaluable political colleague,” the former prime minister said.
“No words are sufficient to thank Shirley, his lifelong partner, for sharing him so generously with the entire country and taking such good care of him. To her and the family, by blood and extended, we express our profound sympathy. All Jamaica is bereaved.”
