I wish to extend my sympathy to the family. May the God of all comfort mend your broken hearts as you cherish the memories of Lester and focus on the hope of the resurrection that will give us the opportunity to welcome back all our loved ones to life (Acts 24:15).

I first came into contact with Lester via the print media. He and I had some differences of opinion on some technical matters. I really got to know him when both he and I were lecturing at the "Barbados Community College" to a student in the Environmental Health Program. We became friends then. I admired his work for "Amnesty International." As I told him, he had a lot of nerve to take the position defending tolerance, in a society where there is little tolerance for persons who hold different views. I admired him for his stance; the world could do with more people like Lester.
I extend my condolences to his family.
