On my arrival in Texas, a moment ago, I learnt with deep sadness of the passing of Mr. Miles Fitzpatrick.
By any measure, he was a solid, sincere patriot who followed in the footsteps of his father, Magistrate Fitzpatrick and thereby enhanced the legal profession in Guyana and the Region.
I remember Miles from the old College days, always being serious, and committed to high standards.
In the 70’s, even when we interpreted the political and social situation in Guyana differently, the knot of the old school tie allowed us to maintain mutual respect and deep affection.
A friendship that I will miss due to his passing.
From time to time, I would seek his views and advice on a miscellany of matters.
Indeed, the legal fraternity and citizenship as a whole have lost a good man.
On behalf of my wife Jennifer and family I extend condolences to his wife and bereaved family members.
May his soul rest in peace.
