I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the wife, children and other family members of John Williams who transitioned to his new life earlier this month. My association with John goes back to his days as a student in my economics class at the UWI Cave Hill campus. We also shared a common interest in human resource matters and had several discussions on these matters over the years. He was a very knowledgeable, practical, committed and caring person. I will certainly miss his warm and approachable nature. To the family, he has made a lasting and valuable contribution to HR matters in Barbados and will be long remembered by his friends and professional colleagues. Keep strong in heart and spirit.

The life of John Williams was one dedicated to love and service to his family, faith, and country. He was a knowledgeable, articulate, and funny person, but also enthusiastic and ardent in his quest for quality at a personal and professional level. We have lost a great man and I want to express deepest sympathy to his wife and family and thank them for sharing him with us. I will be praying for the family; may he rest in peace.
