Lorri Alexander’s life celebrated in song, worship and praise

His life was celebrated in song, worship and praise by his family, ministers of the government, members of the PNCR, the media, political activists, well wishers and friends, the Government Information Agency (GINA) reported.

At the service Alexander was remembered as an individual with a passion for his African heritage.

Alexander had envisioned the staging of the Miss African Heritage Pageant and was considered to be an “Afronite Ambassador”. He established the Wicker Furniture Store in an effort to provide employment for many young people in Guyana and Jamaica.

And his love for art forms, particularly a passion for jazz, calypso and soca music inspired him to introduce the Wig and Gown nightspot in Georgetown from 1969 to 1972.

He was the host of the popular talk show titled “Guyana the Way Forward-Ting Na Regular”.

In keeping with his drive in promoting education, GINA noted, he wrote many books and recently his book of poetry titled Moongazer was approved for the school curriculum by the Ministry of Education and was also launched at the recently concluded Carifesta celebrations. He was interred at the St James The Less Cemetery, David St, Kitty.
