Beausejour, Carriacou, June 3rd, 2014- Petite Martinique bade farewell to one of her treasured sons.

Former United Nations Ambassador and Parliamentary Secretary for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Michael Caesar was laid to rest on the 586 acres island, the place which he often referred to as the “continent of Petite Martinique”.

Senator Jester Emmons and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs Bernadette Lendore-Sylvester were among several persons who attended the funeral service; to pay their last respects to a man who devoted most of his life to community service.

Glowing tributes were paid to him by several persons which included his niece Beverly Warrick, Lucy DeRoche and Odinga Blair. They noted that Caesar who had a long and distinguished career in the public service; will mainly be remembered as a community activist; especially for the strong stance he took against the construction of a United States Naval Base on the island in 1997.

His brother Dr. Frank Caesar who read the eulogy said the young people on the island can take a page from his brother’s life as he accomplished much, moving from being a clerk in the Public Works Department to a United Nations Ambassador.

Father Hugh Logan who delivered the homily noted that although being born on a small island, Caesar rose to greatness through his accomplishments.

Caesar passed away at the age of 81 and was interred at the Paradise Cemetery; following a church service at the Petite Martinique Roman Catholic Church.
