Tender Board CEO dies suddenly
Chief Executive Officer of the National Tender Procure-ment Administration Board and former deputy comptroller of the then Customs and Excise Department Lloyd Forde died early yesterday morning at the St Joseph Mercy Hospital where he had been rushed.
Forde had only last week Monday celebrated his 69th birthday.
His daughter Lizana Forde told Stabroek News yesterday that her father had not been ailing so his sudden death shocked his family and they are left pondering their next move.
“He had said he wasn’t feeling well and we took him to the hospital around midnight (Sunday) but it was not anything to make you say this man is not going to be here now and is going to die,” she said.
Forde, the former warden at of the St Paul’s Anglican Church in Plaisance, East Coast Demerara was described not only as an ardent church member but also one who loved being involved in community activities beneficial especially to youths.
