DCC mourns the loss of patron

The president and members of the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) are saddened at the passing of the distinguished Professor Aubrey Bishop, retired Chancellor of the Judiciary, who served as the club’s patron since 1993.

A release from the club said that the elder statesman served with distinction on various committees of the Guyana Cricket Board and several other sporting entities notably football. His passing on Wednesday night was deeply felt at the club where he had often given advice and recommendations which added to the upward mobility of the club.

The executive and members of the DCC offer sincere condolences to his widow Carole, their three children, family and friends.

In memory of Professor Bishop, the DCC will host a Night of Reflection and Remembrance at the club’s pavilion, Lance Gibbs and New Garden streets at 7.30 pm February 14, 2013. Members and friends are encouraged to attend. Professor Bishop’s his family, relatives and close friends are expected to attend.
