Howard Aris, our family hero

We are deeply saddened at the death of that fine Jamaican, Howard Aris, who passed away suddenly while travelling with the PNP campaign in Portland yesterday.

For our family, Howard Aris is a hero. When we were children, he volunteered to take my wheelchair-bound Dad for physiotherapy at his Tangerine Place office. Mr Aris would drive to our home, collect my Dad, take him for therapy and drive him back home, refusing to charge extra. His expert care added many more years to our father’s life, enabling him to continue his accounting practice at home. We mourn with his beloved wife Sandra, other members of his family and the sporting fraternity that he served so well.
